Historical Background on the Gold Pound Coins 

Bullion Exchanges is pleased to offer the world’s most recognizable and popular British gold pound coins. The British gold coins were minted in the United Kingdom by Britain’s Royal Mint. The earliest British gold pound coins were minted under Tudor King Henry VII in 1489. Continuously till 1932, the sovereign gold pound was struck, and Britain terminated the gold standard. The modern design of Saint George slaying a dragon on the reverse and the monarch on the obverse was founded nearly 200 years ago in 1816 under George III. The 1984 Great Britain Proof Gold Pound Sovereign displays St. George on his horse slaying a dragon along with the year of mintage. The famous imagery of Saint George slaying the dragon is well-known to the reverse of all modifications of the coin.

British Gold Pound Bullion Coins

In 1816, Great Britain introduced the British Gold Sovereign as we know it today. During the 1800s, the British Empire expanded under Queen Victoria, and this coin came to be the world’s most widely distributed gold coin. Meanwhile, during the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Sovereign mints expanded globally, such as Australia, South Africa, India, and Canada. These countries became large gold producers and minted thousands of sovereign coins. 

Queen’s Beasts Gold Coins The Queen’s Beasts Gold series was inspired by the splendid coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II, held in 1953 in Westminster Abbey. During the coronation, ten heraldic beasts stood guard and symbolized the strands of royal ancestry to crown the Queen.
