Queen Victoria

Shield Back Sovereigns



T he Gold shield back Sovereign was a standard circulated Queen Victorian coin that featured a shield rather than the traditional George and dragon design. Interestingly, during the 1838 to 1887 period in which the shield back sovereign was issued, the Royal Mint also produced standard young head Queen Victoria coins that displayed the famous George and dragon design. Shield back sovereigns are not rare, yet still command a premium over standard Gold sovereigns due to their unique design and desirability amongst collectors. Shield back sovereigns also featured on some young head and Jubilee head half sovereigns too

Early Queen Victoria sovereigns featured shield back designs following two previous monarchs who also used a Royal Arms shields on their Sovereigns
