As semi-numismatic coins, certain Sovereign coins can 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.

Explore our range of collectable Sovereigns.

Sovereigns are world-famous and beautiful coins, featuring the heads of various British monarchs on the obverse. 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.

As one of the primary coins of the British Empire, the Sovereign was even struck at mints across the world; including Canada, South Africa, Australia and India. These coins have unique mint marks to help identify which mint struck them, and rare examples from these non-UK mints can increase the value of the coins.

Are Gold Sovereigns a Good Investment?

Gold sovereigns are ideal for investors who prefer to keep their holding in small units to give greater flexibility when it comes to selling. Buying gold Sovereign coins is a great way to preserve value against inflation, and, as British legal tender, are Capital Gains Tax exempt for UK investors.

Our gold prices are updated every two minutes on the website in line with the global spot price of gold.


How much is a 22ct gold Sovereign worth?

A full Sovereign weighs just under 8g, and contains 7.315g of pure gold. The value of a Sovereign then is calculated by multiplying its gold content by the current gold spot price.


What is the face value of a Gold Sovereign?

Its face value is £1, meaning it is classed as legal tender. This is why the Sovereign is both VAT-free and CGT exempt, making it perfect for investment. Despite having a face value of just £1, its real value is of course based upon the gold weight, which is worth considerably more.
