1817 George III Sovereign
The First Modern Sovereign . . .
The Sovereign was retired in 1604, and reintroduced in 1817 under the great recoinage of George III. The new Gold Sovereign saw the debut of Benedetto Pistrucci's now-iconic engraving of St George and the Dragon.
This is a very special Sovereign, and a must-have for any collector.
