2023 Full Gold Bullion Sovereign

2023 Full Gold Bullion Sovereign Reverse
(VAT Exempt)
2023 bullion Sovereigns: register your interest now by clicking TRACK PRODUCT. We’ll send you an email as soon as we have these coins in stock. Bullion Sovereigns are issued annually by The Royal Mint and are highly sought after by collectors and investors. The obverse of the 2023 Sovereign will likely show Jody Clark’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, in use on British coinage since 2015. The most commonly used reverse in the last century has been the image of Saint George and the Dragon. Created in 1817 for the first modern Sovereigns, this design is the work of Italian artist Benedetto Pistrucci. Sometimes, bullion Sovereigns display design changes, usually for royal anniversaries. 2023 will mark 70 years since Her Majesty the Queen’s 1953 coronation so this might be celebrated with a privy mark or an alternate reverse. Right now, we just don’t know: our image is just a mock up. We’ll supply real pictures when we have them. Until then you can be assured that this new bullion Sovereign will conform to the specifications established more than 200 years ago: 7.98 grams of 22 carat gold and a diameter of 22.05 millimetres.

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?

We're not sure exactly what these coins will look like yet but we’ll update you as soon as we have more clues. Keep an eye on our blog and our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages for news and info on mintages.
