2017 marked the 200th anniversary of the British gold sovereign, the most important gold coin the world has ever seen. As part of the anniversary celebrations, an exceptional new sovereign coin was struck. The 2017 12-Sided Gold Sovereign – struck in the same shape as the new British circulating pound coin –  is the first of its kind in the world and exclusive to Hattons of London.

Struck in solid 22 carat gold, the coin features a cameo portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with the Latin inscription DIU VIVERE MONARCHIA (“long live the monarchy”). In honour of this anniversary year, only 1,817 have been minted – which is an incredibly small quantity – meaning fewer than 1 in every 13,000 UK households can own one!

This coin combines two very important attributes. Firstly, it is minted from solid 22 carat gold, the historic purity of all gold sovereign coins dating back 200 years to the first issue of 1817. This means that it’s a great way to own your share of one of the world’s most precious resources. However, this coin also has value as a collector’s edition as it is the first twelve-sided gold sovereign to be issued in the world. This means that, as well as the value of the gold within the coin, it will always be sought after as the first of its kind. It is this important combination of precious metal and collector values that makes the first ever twelve-sided gold sovereign such an attractive acquisition.

The Sovereign is a major national icon – one of the chief coins of the world in the Late 19th century and still minted even today. Its history is probably the most fascinating of all the world’s coinage and it is rightly regarded as the most impressive gold coin anywhere in the world. It is of such significance within Britain that it can be bought without paying any VAT. This is a coin that sits beyond the reach of the Chancellor of the Exchequer!

Authorised by Tristan da Cunha, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham Palace, it is a wonderful celebration – and a world first one at that.

Only 1,817 of these highly impressive coins have been struck as part of the celebrations for the bicentenary of the Sovereign and we expect a sell-out within weeks given the exceptional value for money that the 2017 12-sided Gold Sovereign represents, its low mintage and the important national event it celebrates.
