Product Description


The Gold Sovereign for George V was minted from 1911-1932. These British gold Sovereigns were the last ones to be in circulation until the year Britain left the gold standard. The obverse shows a portrait of George V facing to the left and is a design made by artist Sir Edgar Bertram Mackennel. The reverse depicts Benedetto Pistrucci's traditional St George & Dragon design and the year of mintage is at the bottom of the coin. From 1929-32 a new portrait was used with a smaller head, this is known as the modified effigy. The Sovereigns are minted in 22 carat gold and are 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. ​
