(VAT Exempt)
Gold Sovereign of King George IV, minted in 1825. Obverse: bare head portrait of the King, facing left by William Wyon from a bust by Francis Leggatt Chantrey. Date below the truncation of the neck between two pellets, legend reads: 'GEORGIUS IV DEI GRATIA'. Reverse: ornate shield of royal arms, surmounted by a crown, arms of the King of Hanover inescutcheon. Legend, divided by crown, reads: 'BRITANNIARUM REX FID: DEF:'. Artist: Jean Baptiste Merlen. This coin has a milled edge and weighs 7.98 grams with a diameter of 22.05 millimetres. The first modern gold Sovereigns were struck late in the reign of George IV's father, King George III. George IV's initial issues featured the instantly recognisable engraving of Saint George on their reverse and a laureate portrait of the King to the obverse, both designed by Benedetto Pistrucci. In 1825 a new portrait was introduced, paired with a new shield reverse. The image of England's patron saint would disappear from gold Sovereigns for decades before being revived late in the reign of Queen Victoria, George's niece. Grade: GF - Usual contact marks and wear under magnification for gold, around good Fine. References: Marsh 10, S 3801.
