Brilliant Uncirculated Gold Sovereign With a Matte Finish
First struck in 1817, Great Britain’s legendary Gold Sovereign is one of the oldest and most recognized gold coins in the world, and the only coin to be struck on five different continents. Considered by many to be the flagship coin of The Royal Mint, it is the unmistakable centerpiece of many British coin collections.
In 2019, the series debuted the first Modern Gold Sovereign with a Matte Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) finish. To follow up on that success, The Mint issued a limited edition release of 2020-dated Gold Sovereigns also with a Matte finish. Unlike the 2019 release that had a mintage of 20,000 coins, the 2020 mintage was limited to just 12,000 — a 40% drop-off in a time when people were purchasing gold like crazy due to panic buying amid the COVID-19 pandemic!
Struck in approximately one-quarter ounce of 91.7% (22 karat) gold, this superb coin not only exhibits Benedetto Pistrucci’s classic design of Saint George and the Dragon that has appeared on the coin since 1817, but it also features a sublime matte finish that gives it a soft, satin-like appearance. A work of art in miniature form, the Quarter-Ounce Gold Sovereign is one of the most widely-traded coins in the world and is popular among collectors and gold bugs alike.
In addition, the 2020 Great Britain Gold Sovereign Matte Finish Coins we have available in this offer have all been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded coins have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.
Once recognized as legal tender in more than 20 countries, the Sovereign’s status as an elite gold bullion coin is unsurpassed. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity; reserve your 2020 Matte Finish Gold Sovereign today!
