The Mary Gillick Sovereign Design

1957 Gold Sovereign

The 1957 Full Sovereign was the first mass produced Sovereign of the Elizabethan era. This Sovereign marked the end of a twenty-year pause in Gold Sovereign production. The value of a 1957 Gold Sovereign commands a moderate premium and means a 1957 Full Sovereign is worth more than its weight in Gold

The uncrowned portrait of Queen Elizabeth was designed by Mary Gillick and was selected from seventeen candidate effigies. It is not reported whether all seventeen were of uncrowned designs. The uncrowned portrait was first introduced to British coins in 1953. It would be a long four-year wait until the design was available on Gold Sovereigns

1957 Gillick Sovereign

Gillick Sovereigns

The 1957 Sovereign is the first ‘Gillick’ Sovereign which is named after the designer Mary Gillick

Gillick’s uncrowned design from 1952 was the chosen design from a sample of 17 portraits and remains a favourite for British Gold coin collectors

No half Sovereigns were struck with the Gillick effigy. Only full Sovereigns from this period exist

The 1957 through to 1968 saw this design struck on Full Sovereigns but no half Sovereigns were ever made by the Royal Mint during this time period. No Sovereigns we issued between 1968 and 1974. The first Half Sovereign featuring Queen Elizabeth II was in 1980 which featured the first crowned portrait of her Majesty

Queen Elizabeth II Gold Sovereigns are very popular with collectors because they are the first of a set of four Queen Elizabeth II Sovereign designs. The value of the 1957 to 1968 Full Sovereigns are therefore likely to maintain their premium over the spot price as collectors want to own one of the first Sovereigns featuring Queen Elizabeth II
