(VAT Exempt)
2007 gold proof Sovereign with Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. In the 2000s, The Royal mint was issuing proof Sovereigns in black velvet cases inside a larger black card case with gold lettering to the lid. The larger information booklet/certificate of authenticity sits inside the larger case. This coin comes with all its original packaging with its COA enclosed. Like all ‘full’ gold Sovereigns this one is composed of 7.98 grams of 22 carat gold and measures 22.05 millimetres across. The edge is milled. The difference here, and what makes this issue particularly collectible is the proof finish. Intended for collectors, proof coins are stuck multiple times with hand prepared dies for a high definition design with frosted devices and shiny fields. The finish is preserved by the original capsule. The obverse shows the fourth definitive effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the reverse shows the instantly recognisable Saint George design, long associated with Sovereigns. This engraving was completed by Italian artist Benedetto Pistrucci for the first modern Sovereigns, issued in 1817 and has been used on and off since. It’s a classic motif, beloved by collectors. Only 8,199 gold proof Sovereigns were issued by The Royal Mint in 2007 making this issue highly sought-after.

Limited edition gold proof 2007 Sovereign in original box with numbered certificate of authenticity.

The Story of the Sovereign

The first Sovereigns were struck during the reign of Tudor king Henry VII. Centuries later, a new gold coin bearing this name was introduced, following a major overhaul of British coinage. This Sovereign, first minted in 1817, established specifications that are still strictly followed today.

All Sovereigns weight exactly 7.98 grams and are composed of 22 carat gold. That's a gold weight of 7.32 grams or .2354 troy ounces. Sovereigns measure 22.05 millimetres in diameter and have a nominal face value of one pound sterling though their gold content means they command significantly higher prices.

Sovereigns once circulated across the globe but production ceased with the outbreak of the First World War. Reintroduced in 1957, annual issues attract investors and collectors with limited edition proof Sovereigns - hand-finished for a flawless effect - the most sought-after.

Just 8,199 proof Sovereigns were issued by The Royal Mint in 2007, not including those in sets.

Saint George and the Queen

For much of its history the modern Sovereign has featured an iconic reverse design, crafted by Italian artist Benedetto Pistrucci. His instantly-recognisable Saint George and the Dragon design shows England's patron saint mounted on a horse, slaying a dragon underfoot.

It's a powerful image that has become synonymous with the gold Sovereign. These coins don't carry their denomination on their face as part of their legend like most currency, so the Saint George motif is an easy identifier for many collectors. The coin's date appears below the dragon.

Pistrucci's reverse is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. In use between 1998 and 2015, this fourth official effigy shows a greater degree of realism than its idealised predecessors. Broadley's initials - IRB - appear below the truncation of Elizabeth II's neck.

Proof Sovereign Presentation

While bullion Sovereigns are minted in significant numbers by The Royal Mint each year, only a small number of proof coins are offered. Intended for collectors, proof coins have a high-definition, high-contrast finish, achieved with multiple strikes of hand-prepared dies.

The finish is preserved by the original capsule and velvet presentation box that the coin comes in. Also included: a numbered certificate of authenticity.
