The 2024 Gold Sovereign collection
Brace yourself for a touch of royal magic as The Royal Mint reveals its enchanting 2024 Gold Sovereign collection. This is a big deal because it’s the first time King Charles III’s reign graces the iconic Sovereign coin. Imagine a coin featuring a classic dragon-slaying St. George on one side and the king’s portrait on the other – that’s what’s cooking in the mint!
The 2024 Sovereign Collection is not just one coin but a treasure trove of possibilities. It includes The Sovereign and Half-Sovereign 2024, and also the fancy 2024 Three-Coin Set, Four-Coin Set, and Five-Coin Set.
Rebecca Morgan, the Director of Commemorative Coin at The Royal Mint, is absolutely thrilled. She says,
“We are delighted to unveil the 2024 Sovereign Collection, which will see the globally recognised Benedetto Pistrucci’s classic St. George and the dragon design return. Known as the ‘chief coin of the world’, the 2024 Sovereign is particularly special, as Pistrucci’s timeless design will be paired with His Majesty King Charles III’s official portrait appearing on the obverse of the coin for the first time. We anticipate this will be popular amongst collectors who are looking to secure a piece of history and add to their ever growing Sovereign collection.”
A Trip Through Time with The Sovereign coin
If you’re wondering what’s so special about The Sovereign, let’s take a little stroll down memory lane. Way back in 1489, King Henry VII had a brilliant idea – he wanted a fancy “new money of gold” to show off the Tudor dynasty’s power. That’s when The Sovereign was born, and boy, has it come a long way! This coin has been through a lot in its 500-year history, but it’s still a big deal. They even call it the ‘chief coin of the world’ because it’s that important.
