Sell Gold Sovereigns for Cash

Earn quick cash on your gold sovereign collection with our trusted gold valuers and buyers.

The gold sovereign, first minted in 1917, is a coin of the United Kingdom that’s highly popular among investors and gold traders. This is due to it still being deemed legal tender, despite them no longer being circulated, meaning investors can avoid paying tax when buying.

Sovereigns get their name as they have the sovereign of the UK on one side and a design showing the infamous ‘George and the Dragon’ on the other. The first sovereigns were minted with King George lll and new sovereigns used to be produced whenever there was a new reigning monarch.

How much is a gold sovereign worth?

The value of your gold sovereigns or half sovereigns is determined by their pure gold content. Quintuple sovereigns are otherwise referred to as ‘five-pound coins’, as they’re worth the same as five full sovereigns in one large coin. Cash4Gold-Now accepts single sovereigns or larger collections of coins, whether your coins are in perfect condition or are showing signs of wear and tear.

Which gold sovereign is the most valuable?

In terms of gold content, the most valuable gold sovereign is the full sovereign or the less common quintuple sovereign. Fake sovereigns or those that have been damaged due to being commonly mounted on jewellery can be worth slightly less but are still worth having valued for their scrap cold contents in exchange for some cash in the bank.

How much does a sovereign sell for?

The value of a gold sovereign will be determined through our thorough and professional valuation process which identifies the weight and purity of the gold to present you with a fair and competitive price. In addition to a sovereign’s weight and purity, the value will also be affected by the current rate of gold on that date; a value that fluctuates daily.

Are older sovereigns worth more?

When selling gold sovereigns to online gold buyers, the age of your sovereign won’t affect the value or price you will be offered. Our valuation process takes into account the weight and purity of your gold sovereign as well as the gold rate at the time of valuation, not its historical value or significance.

Generally, gold sovereigns are minted in 22 carat gold and their weights and purities are closely monitored and adhered to by The Royal Mint.
