Full Gold Sovereign Coin – Background
Gold continues to be desired, as it has been for centuries, for both its beauty and value. Sovereign coins are an affordable way to appreciate its precious qualities. The Sovereign has been made by The Royal Mint for over 500 years and is internationally recognised all over the world for its monetary value. Sovereigns are a staple of any UK bullion investors portfolio for many different reasons. Issued as UK legal tender, each coin is meticulously struck by The Royal Mint from 22 carat gold.
As well as being highly competitively priced, sovereigns are UK legal tender and hence Capital Gains Tax exempt. This is an important factor to consider when choosing what form of metal to buy. By purchasing UK coins eligible for CGT exemption you can avoid paying tax on the profit you make. The amount of this CGT exempt profit won’t affect or decrease the limit of tax-free profit on your other investments either.
Historical Sovereign Coin Design
Featuring a timeless design, the Sovereign has been used in British currency ever since King Henry VII instructed The Royal Mint to produce a new currency in 1489.
There have been Sovereigns in circulation since 1489 with the Half Sovereign being first produced in 1544 during King Henry VIII reign. The modern Gold Sovereign coin was first issued in 1817 when the sovereign replaced the Guinea, it became legal tender in the United Kingdom with a face value of £1 Sterling.
The ‘Saint George and the Dragon’ design inspires integrity and strength. The Sovereign is traded, respected and admired all over the world and has been an integral part of UK coin design for many centuries.
