The gold sovereign is one of the most recognisable gold coins in the world. Originally struck by the Tudor monarchs to showcase their power and wealth, this beautiful coin has, since 1817, been struck to the same 22-carat gold specification which hasn't changed in over two hundred years. 

The first modern sovereign struck in 1817 depicted Saint George and the Dragon sculpted by the Italian engraver Benedetto Pistrucci. His neo-classical masterwork has proved to be enduringly popular and still appears on many sovereigns struck today. 

Benedetto’s great-great-great niece Angela Pistrucci is an acclaimed international artist who studied her craft at the highly prestigious Italian Mint in Rome. In 2018, we worked with Angela for the second time to produce another fresh interpretation of the most famous fight scene in numismatic history.
