The other sovereign


Guest

Recommended Posts

We know that the sovereign has the standard specification of purity, diameter, weight and effigy of the King/Queen since 1817. Besides the standard sovereign from Great Britain and some other mint branches in other countries, I could only think of the following:
 
- Isle of Man sovereign
- Gibraltar sovereign
- Modern Perth mint sovereign
- South Africa gold pound (not really sov, but has the sov specifications)
 
What other sovereign with the same specifications are available?

Thank you. I also just realize that there is this St Helena sov 2019 series, with very nice Una and the lion interpretation. 

Now i wonder why these coins can be termed as sovereign? For example the Perth mint sovereign is also a $25 denomination coin...

There are a hell lot more pieces of Sovereign specifications: Bahamas, Bermuda, Columbia (3 designs) in the 1910s and 20s, more recently Cyprus, Greece, Suriname, Cayman Islands, Turkmenistan, Lesotho, Saudi Arabia (was discussed in TSF lately), the Saudi Aramco piece, South Africa 2 Rands (1961-1980 easy; 1981-1983 rare proofs only). Malta (1977) and Israel (1960ish) had one each.

Maybe I forgot some. Still, a lot more than I can ever afford 😕
