Victorian Gold Sovereigns

The Victorian period was the years that Queen Victoria reigned Great Britian. Any Gold Sovereigns minted between the years of June 1838 until her death in early 1901 is therefore a Victorian Gold Sovereign

There are three different portrait heads of Queen Victoria on the Gold Sovereigns throughout the period, where the exact value of the Victorian Gold Sovereign varies considerably depending on which head is present on the coin

1838 - 1901 Sovereigns

Victorian Sovereigns

No Sovereign collection is complete without the Victorian Sovereigns. Other than Queen Elizabeth II, no other monarch had more of an influence on the Gold Sovereign than Queen Victoria 

Her era was a significant one, as she was the first monarch to abandon the shield design in favouor of the modern-day George and dragon

1838 - 1887 Sovereigns

The Shield back

The Victorian Shield back Sovereign is highly sought and commands a premium in the market. This design was minted concurrently with the traditional ‘Young Head’ George and dragon design

Victoria MS sovereign

1871 - 1887 Sovereigns

The Young Head

The oldest, and most desired of the three Victorian portriats is the ‘Young Head’. Like Queen Elizabeth’s Gillick Sovereign, Victoria’s first effigy was youthful and uncrowned

Jubilee Head Gold Sovereign coin

1887 - 1893 Sovereigns

The Jubilee Head

1887 marked the golden jubilee and so a new effigy was designed to replace the outdated young head design. Jubilee heads remain a popular type with British Gold coin collectors

1893 - 1901 Sovereigns

The Old Head

The final Queen Victoria sovereign is a lower-premium type which is usually readily available for close to its bullion value. A nice design and a coin that often provides the bulk of a Gold coin collection
