The Gold Sovereign for Edward VII was minted from 1902 -1910. The obverse shows a portrait of Edward VII and the reverse depicts Benedetto Pistrucci's traditional design of Saint George slaying a Dragon.
Sovereigns with the portrait of King Edward VII were minted for fewer years than those of George V or Elizabeth II, as he was king for only a brief period of time. He was crowned in 1902 and remained on the throne until his death in 1910.
The Sovereigns are 22 carat and free from Capital Gains Tax, which makes it an attractive gold coin to hold for UK investors. Various years are available and the individual coins are delivered in our protective plastic flips.
