Design Details

Obverse Side

The obverse side of the 5 Pound British Gold Sovereign features the effigy of the reigning monarch. Specifically, coins struck after 1998 showcase Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth-generation depiction of Queen Elizabeth II, capturing her in right-profile relief.


Reverse Side

The reverse side is graced by Benedetto Pistrucci’s timeless design of St. George slaying the dragon. This depiction not only adds artistic value but also pays homage to St. George, who has been revered as a soldier saint since the 7th century.

With its blend of rich history and pure gold content, the 5 Pound British Gold Sovereign transcends mere currency to become a tangible narrative of British legacy. Each coin is a canvas, featuring artistry that captures the essence of reigning monarchs and legendary saints. This is not just wealth—it’s heritage in your hands.
