By The Royal Mint

Queen Victoria (1837-1901) - Gold sovereigns are the most collected denomination of all, but none more spectacular than the young head portrait of one of the most prevalent monarchs in history. Designed by William Wyon this particular portrait was used on her coinage for forty-nine years and is still highly collected. The reverse struck with the shield was almost probably the work of Johann Baptiste Merlen and is equally as impressive. This coin is in a beautiful condition and London mint.
