2005 Queen Elizabeth II Full Gold Sovereign BU
A One-Time Issue of the Classic Coin . . .
This gorgeous modern Sovereign featured a special reworking of the classic St George design on the reverse by sculptor Timothy Noad, with Ian Rank-Broadley's iconic fourth-coinage portrait on the obverse.
Issued for one year only, Noad's controversial Art Deco reimagining of the St George reverse was never repeated. It can also be found on the Half-Sovereign, Double-Sovereign and Five Pound Coin from 2005, which we will be adding to this site soon.
