• The very first Sovereign of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign

• Strictly limited numbers available
Why I recommend the Queen Elizabeth II 1957 Gold Sovereign…
There have been many significant Sovereigns during her record-breaking reign that could lay claim to being the most important QEII Sovereign, but there’s only one first…
As well as being the first of Her Majesty’s reign, the 1957 Sovereign also has a design quirk that NO OTHER Sovereign features. The finely milled edge has 168 grains (ridges), whereas all other Queen Elizabeth II Sovereigns have just 108 grains.
Couple this with the significance of Her Majesty’s first ever Sovereign and you have one of the most important British coins ever issued.
