British Gold Sovereigns

British Gold Sovereigns

At the height of the British Empire gold Sovereign coins were used worldwide. The size of a nickel, they were the world's most widely circulated gold coins. As the British Empire grew in the late 1800's and early 1900's the coins were minted in various cities throughout the British Empire; in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne in Australia; Bombay, India; Ottawa, Canada, and in Pretoria, South Africa.

These coins have been collected and traded throughout the world and show the reigning monarch (sovereign) on the obverse side, with Pestrucci's design of St. George (the patron saint of England) slaying a dragon on the reverse.

British Sovereigns also have a very rich history. Since they are highly recognized worldwide, they have been used as emergency money for decades. Allied World War II pilots carried British Gold Sovereigns in their survival kits to barter and trade with in case they were shot down in foreign territory. Their history, numismatic qualities, privacy benefits, and gold content make them a great addition to any investment portfolio.
