The British Gold Sovereign was first issued under King George III as a replacement for the Guinea series. Each coin weighs just under 8 grams and is struck in 22ct Gold. Here we are offering the Jody Clark Sovereign Sovereign by type rather than by date.
In 1981 the late Princess Diana married Prince Charles, so in the coin trade this coin has
always been known as the Charles & Diana Sovereign. You have H.M. Queen Elizabeth II
on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side.
Each coin is in gleaming Proof condition, the finest grade that you can get. They are struck
by the Royal Mint in 22ct Gold and come in their original case. Unfortunately on some of the
cases there was a label attached to the case and part of it might still be adhering, but the coins
themselves are in perfect Proof condition.
Today the Royal Mint is charging £425.00 for this 1981 Proof Sovereign in the original case.

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.
