The World War One Sovereign

Did you know that by the end of WWI, £100 million of gold coinage was withdrawn from circulation?

Just days after the war was confirmed, the British government pleaded with the country to return their gold Sovereigns. This was to support the Bank of England and the country’s finances.

But that also meant the demand for gold Sovereigns for general circulation dropped, so the Mint produced fewer and fewer Sovereigns throughout the war years.

Therefore, they’re now incredibly hard to find...

But today, we have sourced a very limited number of WWI dated Sovereigns. Here's why you need one:

  • Struck from 7.98g of Gold, this Sovereign depicts the iconic St George and the Dragon design on the reverse with the effigy of King George V on the obverse.  
  • You can pay for your WWI Gold Sovereign in 10 interest-free instalments, surely one of the most affordable ways to own this impressive coin with so much history.   
  • Your Sovereign comes protected and encapsulated so it can be kept safe for generations, placed in a deluxe wooden presentation box with its own certificate of authenticity.
