Elizabeth II, Machin Decimal Sovereign Brilliant Uncirculated, 1974
Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne in 1952 and since then there have been five different
busts of her on the Gold Sovereign. A gold sovereign is struck in 22ct gold and weighs
about 8 grams.
No gold coins were struck for ‘circulation’ until 1967. The bust design offered here is the slightly more mature Young Head by Arnold Machin. Her Majesty is our longest serving Monarch and she is entitled to have the design
of her bust changed as she matures with age. All of the coins are struck in 22ct gold all are in
Brilliant Uncirculated. Dates will
be of our choice.
