Here’s a unique opportunity to collect both types of gold sovereign that were issued during the George IV’s reign.
The ‘Laureate’ Head sovereign was issued from 1821 to 1825. Benedetto Pistrucci had designed the sovereign for George III and was retained to engrave the new king’s portrait and the St. George and Dragon reverse.
George IV loathed his depiction on the sovereign and so William Wyon was commissioned to create a new effigy. This ‘Bare’ Head sovereign was issued between 1825 and 1830. The reverse also had a new design. It features a magnificent crowned shield of the Royal Arms designed by Jean Baptiste Merlen.
Struck in 22 carat gold, these highly sought-after coins are encapsulated for protection and mounted on a richly-finished wooden panel within the handsome display chest provided at no extra charge. Limited quantities are available.
Display case is 5” x 3¾” x 1½”.
