Overview

The George V Sovereign was minted by the Royal Mint from 1911-1932. George V reigned during a turbulent era for the Royal family and Great Britain. He reigned throughout World War I and during the Great Depression. It is for this reason that the production of the George V sovereigns was sporadic and does not span the duration of his reign, unlike his predecessors. These coins display a portrait of George V and on the reverse Benedetto Pistrucci's design of St. George and the Dragon. George V is remembered for changing the British Royal House from Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to Windsor in 1917. H.G Wells notoriously wrote about the Royals' Germanic connection, stating it as an "alien and uninspiring court", George V famously replied: "I may be uninspiring, but I'll be damned if I'm alien!".

These coins benefit from being Capital Gains Tax (CGT) free. All UK gold and silver bullion coins manufactured by the Royal Mint are legal tender and are exempt from capital gains tax. Tax free coins are available to buy from ATS Bullion and these include Sovereigns, half Sovereigns, one ounce gold Britannia, half ounce gold Britannia and silver one ounce Britannia.

As part of the celebrations, the Royal Mint revived Benedetto Pistrucci's earlier design of St. George and the Dragon. The St. George design did not grace the half Sovereign until 1893.
