Its very name proclaimed it ‘the gold of the king’: The Gold Sovereign. 

The gold sovereign coin is a Tudor invention, initially commissioned in 1489 by Henry VII, the first Tudor monarch. Sovereigns were struck for over a hundred years by all the Tudor monarchs – and all their sovereign coins depicted an enthroned portrait of the monarch who issued the coin. 

But following the death of the last Tudor queen, Queen Elizabeth I, the image of the monarch seated on their throne largely stopped appearing on gold coins of the realm.

The 535th Anniversary of the Sovereign Gold Half Sovereign is struck to stunning proof quality. Limited to 9,999 for the entire world, this is your opportunity to own one of the most historic and spectacular designs in 535 years of gold sovereign history!

Rest assured, you have no further commitments and your purchase is protected by The London Mint Office 14-day “no quibble” guarantee.
