Why buy this £1 British 2019 Gold Sovereign?
The Gold Sovereign calls to mind the old expression, "as sound as the pound and as good as gold," as this traditional series offers both. The Sovereign is among the oldest continuing series on the planet. The Sovereign was recognized by over 20 countries during its height in the 19th century and is the only gold coin that has been struck on five continents. This latest edition in the series was struck at the British Royal Mint from 7.98 g of .917 fine gold.
Exquisite St. George and the Dragon Design by Benedetto Pistrucci
The obverse bears Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The longest reigning British monarch dons the same crown that she wore at her coronation, her Royal Diamond Diadem. Her name and abbreviated Latin title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith) are inscribed along the rim.
Benedetto Pistrucci's iconic St. George and the Dragon graces the reverse. A muscular st. George wears a cape and a military helmet as he wields his sword, preparing to slay the dragon, a symbol of Satan. The coin's date, "2019," and Pistrucci's initials are provided below.
Impeccable MS70 Reverse Frosted with Tower Bridge Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin its highest grade, Mint State 70, which means that it is in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification. NGC also noted that the reverse is frosted. This information comes provided on a label that bears an image of one of London's most famous landmarks, Tower Bridge.
