Gold bullion Sovereigns are possibly the most famous of all gold coins and are highly sought-after by collectors and investors alike. The Sovereign was first minted in the 17th century and the contemporary gold Sovereign has been struck in Britain since 1817, and again from 1817-1917, in 1925 and in 1957 and beyond. The Sovereign was removed from circulation during the First World War as British people were asked to surrender their Sovereigns for the war effort, the building up the Bank of England reserves and for the purposes of repaying international debt.

In nearly every gold bullion Sovereign, the Monarch's portrait is depicted on the coin's obverse. The first of the modern Sovereigns hosted a portrait of King George III and the 'St George and the Dragon' design by Benedetto Pistrucci, an Italian engraver who became Chief Medallist at The Royal Mint. This 2007 Sovereign coin hosts a portrait of HM The Queen, Elizabeth II. The current Monarch, HM Queen Elizabeth II, is also the longest reigning of all time, overtaking her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria in 2015. At just twenty-five-years-old, the then Princess Elizabeth was pronounced Queen in 1952 with her Coronation taking place in June 1953.

The year 2007

The year 2007 saw; a media storm over the disappearance of four-year-old Madeleine McCann, Nicolas Sarkozy elected President of France, Gordon Brown succeeding Tony Blair as Prime Minister, floods dominating central and western England, Northern Rock experiencing a bank run, the world shocked by the Virginia Tech shooting, scientists discovering kryptonite, and the public hating the newly designed London 2012 Olympic Games logo. 2007 was a poignant year in history, now immortalised in coinage. 

Description of the 2007 Gold Bullion Sovereign Coin

The Obverse (front, heads) presents Queen Elizabeth II's fourth portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley. Elizabeth II is captured in the Royal Diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary in 1947. Her Majesty also wore the crown at her 1953 Coronation ceremony. 

The Reverse (back, tails) of the 2007 gold bullion Sovereign hosts the signature 'St George and the Dragon' depiction by Benedetto Pistrucci, designed in 1817. St George is armed with a sword on horseback, slaying the dragon. The Master of the Mint originally instructed Pistrucci to create the Sovereign design and his image of St George, the Patron Saint of England, and his dragon. Over 200 years later, the design has stood the test of time. 

The coin includes the inscription, 'DEI GRA REGINA FID DEF', which translates to 'By the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith'. The inscription refers to HM Queen Elizabeth II's position as Supreme Governor of the Church of England, a role Her Majesty has held since her accession to the throne in 1952. 

The 2007 gold bullion Sovereign coin may be supplied in an acrylic capsule.

The Legend of St George and the Dragon

An ancient legend with a number of fabled stories associated with him, St George's legacy dates back to the 3rd century. The most familiar story recounts St George as a rescuer on horseback sent to save a young maiden or princess sacrificed to a dragon, which he slays. It is widely believed that the dragon in the mythical tale was slain at Uffington's Dragon Hill, a Bronze-age site just 20 miles from our premises. As the Patron Saint of England, St George celebrated on the 23rd April every year. 

The Reverse depicts 'St George and his dragon', in the classic design by Benedetto Pistrucci. The Obverse design of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II is the fourth portrait design, by Ian Rank-Broadley.
