Description
The British 2 Sovereign Gold Coin, often referred to as the "Double Sovereign," is a highly collectible and valued piece among numismatists. These coins typically contain 0.4708 troy ounces of gold, with a purity of 22 carats (91.67% gold content), reflecting the traditional English gold standard known as crown gold. The size and weight are roughly double that of a single sovereign coin. The design frequently features the reigning monarch on the obverse and the classic Saint George and the Dragon motif on the reverse, a design created by Benedetto Pistrucci that has become synonymous with British gold coinage. Whether in Proof or Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition, the Double Sovereign's value is derived both from its precious metal content and its historical and numismatic significance, with the actual date on the coin playing a crucial role in determining its collectibility and market value.
