What Are Gold Proof Sovereigns?
The first Sovereigns were large hammered coins issued by the kings of the Tudor dynasty. The prestigious name was later revived for a new gold coin, issued after a major overhaul of British currency.
The Sovereigns issued in 1817 established a specification still followed today, more than 200 years later. Each of these gold coins is composed of 7.98 grams of 22 carat (916.7) gold and has a diameter of 22.05 millimetres.
Proof Sovereigns used to be extremely rare but since 1979 The Royal Mint has offered a very limited number annually. Designed for collectors, proof Sovereigns have a high definition finish allowing you to enjoy classic coinage designs as the artists intended.
What Will The 2023 Sovereign Look Like?
In recent years, Sovereigns have featured a range of commemorative designs, authorised for royal anniversaries. 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 proof 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?
