Gold Sovereigns

The British Gold sovereign is a very popular choice for investors globally. They offer an option for both bullion and numismatic collectors given that some of the mass produced Gold Sovereign years trade very close to their intrinsic value, whilst rarer designs have numismatic properties, with their value depending on condition, age and mintage
Gold sovereigns are available in various sizes ranging from a quarter sovereign to a large five Sovereign. Gold Sovereigns are minted by the Royal Mint and are available in matt, bullion and proof finishes. All Gold Sovereigns are 91.67% Gold with the remainder comprised of Silver and/or copper. Modern day Gold Sovereigns have a higher copper content, giving them a rose Gold sheen
