First introduced in 1489 by Henry VII, sovereigns were issued by every monarch who followed until James I. Reintroduced in 1816, the Sovereign is one of The Royal Mint’s most popular coins. Benedetto Pistrucci’s iconic St George and the dragon design has been perfected over the last 200 years, while the obverse depicts the latest definitive portrait of Her Majesty The Queen, the world’s longest-reigning living monarch.
