Introduction

Tavex is pleased to present the memorial edition of The Sovereign, The Royal Mint’s flagship coin, honours the life and legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. In tribute to Her Majesty, Benedetto Pistrucci’s classic St George and the dragon design stands aside for an intricate reinterpretation of the Royal Arms by Jody Clark. This is also the first Sovereign bullion coin range bearing the official coinage portrait of His Majesty The King, which heralds a new chapter for the British monarchy.

This Sovereign is dated 2022 as it was struck to memorialise the passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. A further Sovereign bullion coin range will launch in 2023.

Why Buy

  • Invest in a Legacy. As The Royal Mint’s flagship coin, The Sovereign has endured for more than five centuries. This memorial edition features His Majesty The King, whilst honouring Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
  • Sovereigns are Britain’s most famous coins. In addition to representing the golden age of the British Empire, gold sovereigns are one of the most treasured coins in Britain and are among the most widely recognized gold pieces worldwide.
  • Sovereign gold coins are liquid. With more than 700 million pieces minted since the 1800s, the sovereign gold coins are supported by a deep and liquid market.
  • Sovereigns are money. All gold sovereigns minted after 1837 are considered legal tender and are exempt from Capital Gains Tax in the United Kingdom.
  • Sovereign coins are the equivalent of savings. A sovereign gold coin is an ideal choice for any long-term saver who appreciates the security and stability of owning physical legal tender gold coins.
  • Sovereign gold coins are an excellent way to diversify your portfolio. Gold’s low correlation with other financial assets makes sovereign gold coins serve as a portfolio hedge against market risk.

History

The Royal Mint 2022 Memorial Sovereign is released as a celebration of the life of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. While it was released in early 2023 the coin is dated 2022.

The Memorial Sovereign features a portrait of King Charles III on the obverse Martin Jennings. This is the first time His Majesty has appeared on the Sovereign series, making the coin a very special release in the series. The reverse of the coin features a stunning new design of the Royal Coat of Arms of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. It weighs 7.98g and is minted in 22 carat (.9167) rose gold.

The Royal Mint is one of the oldest and most respected government institutions of Great Britain. Its long operating history, by some estimates over 1100 years, and coupled with its production of many of the world’s most famous coins, like the gold sovereign, has contributed to making it one of the best known and renowned mints in the world. Since 1279 when the mint established its operation in the Tower of London, it has been responsible for the production of coins of the United Kingdom. Its reputation for excellence and trust was further reinforced when Sir Isaac Newton became Master of the Royal Mint. During his tenure at the Royal Mint, he was responsible for moving the British pound to the gold standard.

Today the Royal Mint is not only responsible for minting coins used for circulation in the UK, but is likewise producing official coinage for more than 60 countries in the world. However, the most important and renowned coin ever to come out of its minting presses has without doubt been the sovereign gold coin which even today is being produced at its minting facility in the town of Llantrisant, Wales, UK. The accuracy and quality of the modern gold sovereign coin is the same as it was two hundred years ago, containing 22 karats of fine gold and weighing exactly 7.98805 grams. The popularity of the gold sovereign has likewise not changed, as confirmed in 2014 when the Royal Mint ran out of 2014 sovereign gold coins due to exceptional demand. The gold sovereign is without doubt one of the foremost gold coins ever to be produced and the fact that almost 100,000,000 sovereigns gold coins have been minted since 1957 is a testament to their excellence and trustworthiness. The reputation of the gold sovereign coin as “the chief coin of the world” will live on for centuries, as savvy investors will always prefer to keep a portion of their wealth in gold coins which are secure, liquid and trustworthy.
