Story

Historic coin

First issued in 1489, the sovereign was named after its magnificent portrayal of then monarch, Henry VII. Following a 200-year hiatus, the coin was revived in 1817 under George III as a circulating piece with a nominal value of one pound sterling (£1). Modern bullion versions are also issued in proof and other collector finishes.

Pistrucci’s masterpiece

Continuing a long-standing tradition, the coins in this set portray St George and the Dragon by Benedetto Pistrucci, the famous Italian medallist and engraver whose association with the Royal Mint spanned 40 years. Also included on the reverse of each coin is the 2024 year-date.

King Charles III obverse

The obverse of each piece portrays the first definitive UK coinage portrait of His Majesty The King by Martin Jennings – the first time it has been paired with Pistrucci’s classic design on a proof sovereign and its smaller denominations.

Presentation packaging

The set is accompanied by packaging detailing the history of the sovereign, and the stories of St George and the Dragon, Benedetto Pistrucci, and King Charles III.
