Why I recommend the UK Queen Victoria Old Head Sovereign…

Guaranteed to be over 100 years old, the Queen Victoria Old Head Sovereign is a Classic British gold coin. It’s the last Sovereign struck during the reign of Queen Victoria when the British Empire was at the peak of its power.

The coin's obverse features Victoria in her later years, with a veil incorporated into the design. It is the only time a British monarch has been depicted on our coinage wearing a veil and it’s seen as a reference to the life of mourning Victoria resigned herself to after the death of her husband Albert.

It was a special coin then and it’s a special coin now.

This little piece of history could have crossed the palms of aristocracy, been around the world or been the sole treasure of a family living through Victorian austerity. The stories behind classic coins like this will be fascinating and endless and that’s why they will always be in demand.
