Queen Victoria is celebrated for her personal virtues, qualities that contributed much to the British sense of equity, duty and fair play. As a tribute to this, these new coins are of greater purity - literally - than all others that have gone before them. SOVEREIGNS: ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST IMPORTANT COINS, STILL MINTED TODAY.
First struck in 1817, the sovereign was the greatest gold coin of its era. Queen Victoria's reign was the greatest age for the sovereign, at one point being legal tender in more than 30 nations and territories around the world, and accepted in even more. That global acceptance was a result of its unparalleled reliability of purity and weight. Even today, just the mention of the word'sovereign' evokes feelings of pride and security in the minds of most of us. Although now long gone from circulation, sovereign coins are still struck for those interested in owning gold.
