1846 Queen Victoria Gold Full Sovereign

1846 Queen Victoria Gold Full Sovereign Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A collectable gold full Sovereign of Queen Victoria, dated 1846. The obverse features the first smaller young head of the Queen facing left with the date below. Small letters to the truncation of Victoria’s neck identify the engraver as William Wyon. The reverse shows the crowned quartered shield of royal arms, representing England in two quarters, Scotland and Ireland in the others, all within a wreath. National flower emblems appear below. Shield sovereigns from the first decade of Victoria’s reign have a somewhat smaller portrait than those minted after 1848 making them instantly distinguishable.
