* Images are of the actual product not stock images

(VAT Exempt)
A collectable gold full sovereign of King George the Fourth, dated 1821. The obverse features the laureate head of the George IV, facing left. Two ribbons extend from the back of his nape. In the legend the king’s name is rendered ‘GEORGE IIII’, not ‘GEORGE IV’ as it would be on Sovereigns issued after 1825. The reverse shows the famous image of Saint George on horseback, armed with a sword slaying a dragon underfoot. The engraver behind both sides of this coin is Benedetto Pistrucci. George IV was crowned in 1821 and Sovereigns with this date were the first to be issued during his nine-year reign. Spink 3800.
