About Sovereign King Charles (2024)

The Sovereign itself dates back to the 15th century and the reign of Henry VII, which makes it one of the world’s oldest coins still in circulation. The Sovereign, along with other gold coins, made up the currency of its day until it was considered unwise to have the country’s gold tied up in the general currency. By the end of The First World War this policy began to change.

The Sovereign  became official gold bullion in 1979, but has remained highly popular with collectors. The infamous Machin portrait was replaced in 1985 by Raphael Maklouf’s third version of the sovereign queen. The Sovereign has since been released in fits and starts, but its popularity remains high among both collectors and investors. This is partly due to the reputation of The Royal Mint and the coin’s historic value.
