The sovereign came into existence in 1489 under the rule of King Henry VII. Since it was the largest coin with the highest value ever produced in British coinage history and with an extremely grand design, the coin was given the apt name the “Sovereign.” The coin sent out a political message of stability, richness, and prestige of the country. However, the production of these coins stopped during the ruling period of James I as he wanted to abolish the Tudor coins.

It was only in 1817, after a gap of 200 years that the sovereign coins were back in production. After the passage of the Recoinage Act of 1816, in 1817 the Royal Mint started the production of the Sovereign coins. These modern sovereign coins’ designs were more beautiful than their predecessors. They immediately became popular among the mass. The obverse of the coin was graced by the bust portrait of the reigning monarch of each period and the reverse featured an extremely artistic rendition of St. George killing a dragon mounted on his horse, a design by a young Italian engraver Benetto Pistrucci. There was a brief period when the St. George image was replaced by the Royal arms on the reverse.

The coins from the 1902-­1910 period fall under the rule of King Edward VII. King Edward was born as Albert Edward on 9 November 1841. He succeeded the throne after his mother, Queen Victoria’s death in January 1901 at the age of 59. His was a short rule of only 8 years before he passed away. He was popularly known as the “Peacemaker,” and he was also the first monarch who believed in the idea of Royal Public Appearances. Although he became a king in 1901, it was not until 1902 that coins for Edward VII were struck. After a royal proclamation in 1902, the sovereign coins bearing the bust portrait of King Edward were struck by the British Royal Mint.

The obverse featured the rightward facing bust portrait of King Edward VII, a design by the chief engraver of the British Royal Mint at that time, George Willian De Saulles. The reverse featured the iconic St. George slaying the dragon design by Italian engraver Benetto Pistrucci.

These coins were minted from 1902 to 1910, in which year King Edward VII passed away.

These British gold coins are well­-recognized and highly reputable coins with amazing intrinsic and artistic value. Hence they are highly sought after coins.
