As semi-numismatic coins, certain coins attract demand not only from bullion investors, but also from coin collectors looking for a rare or particularly interesting coin to add to their collection. These coins can often come at inflated premiums due to this additional demand, in fact, an extremely rare sovereign became the most expensive British coin of all time in 2014 when a numismatic fanatic paid more than £500,000 for a 1937 Edward VII Proof Sovereign.

Sovereigns are world famous and beautiful coins, featuring the heads of various British monarchs on the obverse while the reverse carries the iconic St George and the Dragon design by Benedetto Pistrucci. The Sovereign has been around for more than 500 years, since King Henry VII introduced it in the late 15th Century and has grown to become one of, if not the best recognised bullion coin in the world, making it easy to sell when the time comes to cash in on your investment.
