Why I recommend The Queen Victoria 1897 Veiled Head Gold Sovereign…
The Queen Victoria 'Veiled Head' Gold Sovereign, sometimes known as the 'Old Head', was the last of four Sovereign designs issued during Queen Victoria's reign and was struck between 1893 and her death in 1901.
Offered here is the even more highly sought after 1897 Veiled Head Sovereign - struck in the year of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee. Struck by The Royal Mint in 7.98g of 22 Carat Gold, this historic coins features Benedetto Pistrucci's world famous St. George and the Dragon reverse design.
Over the years, especially during the war years, gold coins were melted down for their precious metal contents, so the fact that this Sovereign has managed to survive against the odds makes it incredibly limited. And as the 125th anniversary of the Victorian Diamond Jubilee approaches, they’ll only get more and more difficult to source on secondary markets.
I have a limited number available for CPM clients, but once these are gone, I'm not sure when, or even if, I'll be able to offer them again.
