1826 King george IV Gold Sovereign

By Coins of the Realm

£595.00

As the eldest son of King George III, George IV was the complete opposite of his father. During his younger years as Prince Regent, he was an outstandingly handsome and charming man known for his extravagance. However, George soon turned into over-indulgence which led him to become a bloated mockery of his former self ridiculed by the public and the press.

This 1826 Gold Bare head sovereign is just one of the examples of the kings vanity using a early younger portrait of himself for the later years of his coins.

The coin itself is in a very fine condition with no problems or major flaws. A nice example for a coin collector wishing to obtain the portrait without breaking the bank balance!
