1937 United Kingdom Gold Proof Sovereign

  Description    Specifications      Free Delivery   


Unique Sovereign Issue struck to celebrate the Coronation of King George VI

The most coveted Sovereign of the 20th Century, just 5,001 1937 George VI Sovereigns were ever struck to mark the year of his Coronation.  After that, no other Sovereigns coins were minted during the remainder of his reign.  Indeed, it wasn’t until the 1970s that another proof sovereign coin was to be struck.

It is because of this rarity that the 1937 Gold Proof Sovereign is such an important coin.  And this means that demand for this coin remains extremely high – especially as fewer and fewer of these coins now find their way onto the secondary market as time passes.

The good news is we do have limited stock available – but these will not last long.  Like all UK Sovereigns, the 1937 coin was struck by The Royal Mint in 22 Carat Gold, with this piece minted to a proof finish.  The coin features the classic St George & the Dragon design, whilst the obverse sees the effigy of King George VI for the one and only time on the Sovereign.

Secure your 1937 Gold Proof Sovereign today, before it is too late.
