What Are Bullion Sovereigns?
The first Sovereigns were struck in the fifteenth century during the reign of the Tudor king Henry VII. This prestigious name was later reclaimed for a new gold coin, issued in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars.
The new Sovereigns of 1817 established a specification still followed today, more than 200 years later. These gold coins are composed of 7.98 grams of 22 carat (916.7 fine) gold and have a diameter of 22.05 millimetres.
The Royal Mint began to strike new Sovereigns in the 1950s, restarting a tradition of annual issues that has continued to the present day. These gold Sovereigns are favoured by investors because they are both Capital Gains Tax and VAT exempt.
What Do 2023 Sovereigns Look Like?
In recent years, Sovereigns have featured a range of commemorative designs, authorised for royal anniversaries. For instance, coins in the 2022 Sovereign family featured a special royal arms reverse, issued to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
We know that the obverse of 2023 bullion Sovereigns will likely feature Jody Clark's portrait of Elizabeth II, in use on British money since 2015. Most gold Sovereigns feature Benedetto Pistrucci's image of St George and the Dragon on their reverse. It's a design crafted in the early nineteenth century for the first modern Sovereigns but will it be used again in 2023?
