Order your '2020 The Dragon Attacks Half Sovereign' today!

The gold sovereign is one of the most recognisable gold coins in the world. Originally struck by the Tudor monarchs to showcase their power and wealth, this beautiful coin has, since 1817, been struck to the same 22-carat gold specification which hasn't changed in over two hundred years. 

The first modern sovereign struck in 1817 depicted Saint George and the Dragon sculpted by the Italian engraver Benedetto Pistrucci. His neo-classical masterwork has proved to be enduringly popular and still appears on many sovereigns struck today. 

Benedetto’s great-great-great niece Angela Pistrucci is an acclaimed international artist who studied her craft at the highly prestigious Italian Mint in Rome.  This year, once again, Angela has produced another fresh interpretation of the most famous fight scene in numismatic history

In 2020, for the first time, ‘The Dragon Attacks!.  Fire pours from its mouth as George holds up his shield to protect him from the searing flames.  Meanwhile, he steadies his spear preparing to attack when the imminent danger has passed.    

Your 2020 sovereign will be supplied in a clear protective capsule to protect it from fingerprints and accidental damage.  The quality and the craftsmanship of each coin is further enhanced by being displayed in an elegant presentation case, and supplied with an informative Certificate of Authenticity to confirm its provenance.
