Gold Sovereigns were first struck in 1817, and were used broadly in Britain’s colonies. These Royal Mint Gold Sovereigns are a lovely, classic edition to any collection, both for their beauty and their value.
Although Gold Sovereigns were first made by the Royal Mint in London, branches of the Mint in British colonies began striking them in response to the demand for circulation. Different monarchs ruling often resulted in different obverse designs.
