The Sovereign is The Royal Mint’s flagship coin. Originally dating back over 500 years, it was reintroduced in the 19th century, and is famous for its unrivalled accuracy, and its classic St George and the Dragon design. The gold coin is usually struck each year as a commemorative coin and as an internationally recognised bullion coin – 2017, of course, marks a special bicentennial.
