On the obverse, the coin features the Queen's 1998 portrait by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley whose initials appear under Her Majesty's head. It is a fine, rather bold, but well-balanced depiction of a mature Queen Elizabeth, The Queen is not wearing a crown; but the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara given to her as a wedding present by Queen Mary, her grandmother. Inscribed in Latin we find the legend "ELIZABETH II DEI GRA REGINA FID DEF", meaning "Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen-Defender of the Faith".
Benedetto Pistrucci's recently modified rendition of St George slaying the evil dragon adorns the reverse side, while the date of issue is inscribed at the bottom. 2014 Sovereigns have a grained milled edge on both sides.
Exactly 100 years ago, the Gold Sovereign was in its prime. Great Britain was thriving as an Empire, and the circulating gold coinage was a source of great pride with a reputation for unsurpassed excellence and quality.
Since then, little has changed, and only for the better: the 2014 Sovereign is still struck in the same 22 karat crown gold alloy, and it still features the classic St George and the dragon design that graced its reverse a century ago.
The Sovereign of 1914 bore the portrait of Elizabeth's grandfather, King George V. But gold was needed at the outbreak of the Great War, to finance the country's war effort. Liberal politician and statesman Lloyd George, a highly energetic Prime Minister of the Wartime Coalition Government (1916–22), appealed against the hoarding of gold, and posters urged the citizens to give up their Sovereigns.
But demand for the coin did not waver, and from 1957, Britain's iconic gold pound coins were struck once more regularly to satisfy sharp collectors and savvy investors who liked to secure their wealth in the yellow metal, this time bearing portraits of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Minted to the high-quality and specific dimension using the latest technologies, the 2014 Gold Sovereign offers high security measure to protect investors and only leave the Royal Mint after careful inspection and quality control. Not even the widespread production of high quality copies in India and the Middle East could pass without detection.
