The 1957 Sovereign viewed by many to be critical to have in your collection

With the provisions of post-war austerity still in force in 1953, no gold coins were issued for Her Majesty’s coronation.

Itwas not until the year 1957 that the first gold sovereigns were struck with our new monarch’s portrait. The 1957 gold sovereign is a type that was only issued for one year as it features a finely milled edge with 168 grains (ridges), whereas all other issues of Queen Elizabeth II have just 108 grains.

Coupled with the fact that this is also the very first year of the Queen’s gold sovereign, it is easy to see why this coin is so important and sought-after: it is a vital first year British gold sovereign issue. No Proofs were struck in this year, making the bullion striking the best quality available
