The Sovereign that shouldn't exist - 25 years out of date & with the wrong kin

• Struck between 1949 and 1951 - but dated 1925

• Only one in four Sovereigns dated 1925 were issued during this time

• Struck to the same exacting quality as all Sovereigns - 7.98g of 22 Carat Gold



Why I recommend The UK 1925 Dated George V Sovereign…

Perhaps the most unusual and coveted of all modern Sovereigns, this rare George V Sovereign was struck between 1949 and 1951 - but dated 1925. 

Featuring a portrait of King George V, despite his son George VI being on the throne, only one in four Sovereigns dated 1925 were issued after that year.

Thankfully, for purposes of identification, the 1925-dated Sovereign issued between 1949 and 1951 has a higher, more pronounced rim around the edge of the coin. This helps to differentiate them from the original 1925 London Sovereigns.

As one of the most unusual Sovereigns ever struck by The Royal Mint, collectors hunt high and low for them. And that's why it belongs in your collection.
