The Sovereign is considered by many to be the flagship of The Royal Mint. The first ever Sovereign coin was commissioned by Henry VII in 1489, and by each Tudor Monarch until the reign of James I, when the Sovereign disappeared for two centuries.

Revived in 1817 as part of the great coinage reform at the end of the Napoleonic Wars, it traditionally featured a heraldic reverse. This was later abandoned in favour of a'St George and the dragon' design by Benedetto Pistrucci. The modern gold Sovereign was first minted in Britain from 1817 until 1917, and then in 1925, 1957-59, 1962-68, 1974, 1976, 1978-82 and 2000 to the present day. Modern gold bullion Sovereign production was paused after 1982 up until the year 2000, although Proof versions were still issued.

The Sovereign ceased being in circulation during the First World War, when the public were asked to surrender gold Sovereigns to; support the war effort, pay off international debts, and build up the Bank of England reserves.
