Category: Tag:

To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the gold sovereign, a completely new design was created for the 1989 sovereign series. A design similar to that of the first gold sovereign issued in 1489 was chosen.

For the obverse impression, a representation Of Ourself as at Our Coronation, seated in King Edward’s Chair, having received the Sceptre with the Cross and the Rod with the Dove, all within the circumscription ‘ELIZABETH.II.DEI.GRA.REG.FID.DEF’ can be seen.

The gold five pounds piece has a weight of 39.94 grams.

Only 2,937 BU gold five pounds pieces were issued by the Royal Mint in 1989.

Mintage: 2,937 (may include coins issued as part of a set). Minted at The Royal Mint.
