Could the King Charles III Sovereign be the most sought-after ever?

Read our latest blog on the first King Charles III sovereign – a coin that we predict could be one of the most collectable sovereigns ever.


Known as possibly the most famous coin in history, the Gold Sovereign is the collector’s dream. As Britain’s flagship coin, it’s steeped with incredible history – so if there was any piece to add to your collection, this should certainly be it!

Every year, the classic sovereign and the proof collectable versions are always very high in demand. But this year’s sovereign is like no other seen before…

Just released by The Royal Mint, we’d like to introduce you to the brand-new Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Sovereign – the first sovereign to feature the portrait of King Charles III.

The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Sovereign – A Unique Collectible

It’s incredibly rare to come across a Memorial Sovereign as it is – but to coincide with that, the reverse has got a rare change in design too!

Unique to the Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Sovereign, the traditional St George and the Dragon design has made way for a new interpretation of the Royal Coat of Arms. This is an updated version of what appeared on the Platinum Jubilee issue last year, so it’s a very fitting tribute to our late Queen.

But that’s not all – what makes this coin even more spectacular is that it’s the first ever sovereign to feature King Charles III’s portrait. This will make it incredibly popular with collectors!

First King Charles III Sovereign

Every so often, a newly released sovereign will exceed the normal levels of collectability. In the past, this has included Queen Victoria’s first sovereign from 1837, George IV’s only sovereign from 1937, and of course, Queen Elizabeth II’s first sovereign from 1957.

And it won’t be long until this sovereign reaches the same level of demand and collectability!

Even if it wasn’t for the unique design, this sovereign would still rank as one of the most important ­– being the very first sovereign to feature the new King, it will be the collectible to have in the future.

It’s the sovereign that links Queen Elizabeth II’s and King Charles III’s reigns together – making any sovereign collection incomplete without it.

Available in Gold Proof and Piedfort Quality, make sure you get yours today before it’s too late!
