Own the first Sovereign of Her Majesty’s reign

The Gold Sovereign is Britain’s flagship Gold coin and is one of the most popular numismatic collector’s items internationally.

Today you have the chance to own a must-have Sovereign – the first Sovereign of Her Majesty’s reign.

The 1957 Sovereign

Queen Elizabeth II is Britain’s longest reigning monarch, making her first Sovereign an extremely significant coin in British history.

When Her Majesty was crowned in 1953, no bullion Sovereigns had been issued for 21 years due to the constraints of wartime austerity. Despite the fact that the 1957 Sovereign was the first Sovereign issued for a quarter of a century it has a surprisingly low mintage – less than a quarter of the 1958 Sovereign!

Limited Availability

Considering that this year marks Her Majesty’s 65th Coronation Anniversary, many collectors are now looking to acquire historic Queen Elizabeth II Sovereigns. 

The 1957 Sovereign is now over 60 years old and extremely difficult to acquire on the secondary market. With such high demand our limited stock is not likely to be available for long. 

Enquire now to secure Queen Elizabeth II's first Sovereign for your collection.
