Great Britain Gold Sovereigns have been issued by the Royal Mint since 1817. The coins are based on the English gold sovereigns introduced by King Henry VII in 1489 during the early years of his reign. Most Gold Sovereigns feature the reigning monarch on the obverse, with St. George slaying a dragon on the reverse. It is possible for special anniversary dates and coins from 1825-1837 to feature the Royal Arms instead.
Each Great Britain Gold Sovereign features a British monarch on the obverse of the coins. The coins date mark will determine which monarch features on the coins as the reigning monarch is always featured.
