George VI Sovereigns

The 1937 Sovereign


The 1937 is a sovereign that carries a significant premium given its rarity and significance in British history. The 1937 sovereign is the only year to feature King George VI and was struck in proof finish as a five, double, full and half sovereign

There was 5,501 four-coin sets of the 1937 sovereign released which all feature a plain edge and proof finish. Most of these sets have been broken-up and sold as singular coins with many of these now slabbed and graded. Many examples are known at PR66 and under, none graded higher than this have been reported 

The George VI 1937 a rare Gold Sovereign, the Sovereigns featuring George VI were struck as proof sets but were never mass produced as the King was the only British monarch to voluntarily vacate the throne

1937 Mintages

There is conflicting data for the 1937 sovereign coin mintages, some sources suggest 5,000 whilst others suggest 5,500. The true number is 5,501. The odd one set was struck for the King himself

The George VI Gold sovereigns are a special case as they, before the 2017 sovereign release, were the last plain-edge Sovereigns to be seen in the market

The 1937 sovereigns are all proof finish coins but some have a cameo whilst others may have an ultra cameo, which fetch a significantly higher price compared to regular proofs. The coins were sold as part of a set encased in a branded red box with a fabric within it which caused minor imperfections on the coins over the years

As these sovereigns were all sold as a set, the five, double, full and half 1937 sovereign coins are all equally are rare as each other. The only British Gold coin featuring George VI are these sovereigns

His portrait can be seen on some South African Gold Pound coins, but no other Gold English coins. Every Gold sovereign enthusiast will want to add the 1937 sovereigns to their collection which means that the premiums for these pieces are high. The premiums, interestingly, seem to be highest in the five sovereign followed by the full sovereign
