Gold Sovereigns Online
Unlike today’s currency, the value of old and rare or commemorative coins tends to increase with time. This is why buying gold sovereigns is a smart choice for investors – not only do they provide investment value but also historic appeal!
Gold Sovereigns have been dated back over 500 years ago to King Henry VII’s Tudor reign. While gold Sovereigns have been around for a long time the sovereign design as we know it today was only first introduced around 1816 and minted up until 1932 when Great Britain left the gold standard. Following the current design introduction in 1816 the Gold Sovereign quickly became one of the most widely distributed gold coins globally as Great Britain flourished under the reign of Queen Victoria. While gold sovereigns were initially minted in London they grew to become minted worldwide in countries such as South Africa, Canada and Australia.
There are almost 200 types of Australian gold sovereigns available, featuring different monarchs, reverses, years and mints. They were produced between 1855 and 1931, by mints in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne, and have different market values according to their rarity. In many cases, you can achieve a higher price for a gold sovereign than its bullion value.
