Overview

The Sovereign was first chartered by Henry VII in 1489 - its original design showed the King in full coronation regalia and on the reverse, the Tudor Rose, a reference to the union between the houses of Lancaster and York. The Victoria Young Head Sovereign was produced between 1838 and 1887. An interesting fact about the Young Head coins - they are the only Sovereign to run concurrently with two differing designs on the reverse. Both the coins have a portrait of the young Victoria, however from 1838 to 1887 the design on the obverse displayed a heraldic shield. From 1871 to 1887 the Royal Mint revived a Benedetto Pistrucci's earlier design of St. George and the Dragon.

1911-1932 George V Sovereign

In Stock

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!".
