1959 Royal Mint King George V St George and the Dragon Gold Full Sovereign Coin. Metal: Solid 22 Carat Gold. Weight: 7.98 Grams / Diameter: 22.05mm. Presented: Certified Slabbed and Graded by PCGS as MS65. In 1959 the Royal Mint released a Elizabeth II St George and the Dragon Gold Full Sovereign Coin struck in solid 22 Carat Gold and has been Certified Slabbed and Graded by PCGS as MS65.
The Sovereign, deliberately created to convey the majesty and dignity of the English Throne, was first struck as a coin in 1489, during the reign of King Henry VII and was duly struck in turn by each of the Tudor Monarchs. Shortly after the Stuart succession, however, James I brought the issue of the Sovereign to an end and it did not reappear for another 200 years. The Coinage reform that followed the Napoleonic Wars brought the return of this magnificent coin and for the new Gold Sovereign of 1817, the traditional heraldic reverse was abandoned in favour of a St George and Dragon of classic beauty by Benedetto Pistrucci.
Now acclaimed as a masterpiece of numismatic art and famed throughout the world, Pistrucci's St George graces the Gold Full Sovereign of 1925. The obverse features the Portrait of Elizabeth II.
