Rare Sovereigns

1827 Gold Sovereigns


K ing George IV reigned in Britain for ten years during which two different portrait designs were featured on both Half and Full Gold Sovereigns. Given the age of this Sovereign, it is important to ask the true value of an 1827 Gold Sovereign because Sovereigns from this period are worth much more than their weight in Gold. The 1827 Gold Sovereign was the first to ever feature the Royal Arms shield on the reverse, this continued through years 1825 to 1830 as illustrated on our Gold Sovereign Timeline


The 1827 Gold Sovereign is referred to the 'bare head' design. This was accompanied by some controversy because in 1823 King George IV insisted on a coinage redesign featuring a revised portrait of himself. The chief engraver at the time was sacked from his role for refusing to use the new design. William Wyon replaced the chief engraver and introduced the bare head portrait which first featured on 1825 Sovereigns
