Why purchase this 1893 Queen Victoria Jubilee Head Gold Sovereign coin?

Victoria was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 1837-1901, a sixty-three year reign which was surpassed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2015. To commemorate Victoria's Golden Jubilee (50th year of reign) in 1887, a new coinage portrait designed by Joseph Edgar Boehm was introduced by the Royal Mint. Boehm's effigy, which was the third to be issued during Victoria's reign, was minted until 1893. Measuring 22.05 mm in diameter, this 1893 sovereign coin, struck from 0.2354 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold, hails from the final year of issue of the Queen Victoria Jubilee Head Portrait series.

Queen Victoria is depicted on the obverse wearing a small crown, with The Order of the Thistle and the First Class Badge of the Royal Order of Victoria and Albert pinned to the left shoulder of her gown. Inscribed "VICTORIA D.G." and "BRITT REG. F.D."

The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's iconic rendition of St. George astride a galloping horse, engaged in an epic battle with a winged dragon, with "1893" is inscribed below.
