Buy A 2023 Royal Mint Gold Sovereign
Coming soon: 2023 Sovereigns from The Royal Mint.
These new Sovereigns will be available in very limited numbers and we're anticipating serious demand for these highly-collectable coins. Want to get ahead of the crowd? Sign up for product alerts by hitting the 'TRACK PRODUCT' button and we'll drop you an email as soon our pre-orders go live.
We don't know exactly what these coins will look like yet but we can be pretty certain about the obverse portrait and the basic specifications. Gold Sovereigns have been struck in 22-carat (916.7) gold to a standard set of weights and measurements, established in 1817. It's their precious metal content, their long history and their beauty that makes Sovereigns the 'Chief Coin of the World' and the most anticipated annual release from The Royal Mint.
Martin Jennings' Portrait Of King Charles
Coins in the 2023 Sovereign family are some of the first to feature Martin Jennings' portrait of King Charles III. This new definitive coin effigy was unveiled in late 2022, just weeks after His Majesty ascended the throne, following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. Jennings' uncrowned portrait of King Charles faces left, the opposite direction to the portrait on Queen Elizabeth's coinage. The legend around is likely to read 'CHARLES II · DEI · GRA · REX · FID · DEF ·'.
This profile will soon be seen on circulating UK coins but has featured on a couple of commemorative Royal Mint releases already, including the Queen Elizabeth Memorial range and the 2022 Memorial Sovereign.
