On the 1 July 2017, a 200th Anniversary of the Sovereign Strike on the Day sovereign was issued to mark the royal proclamation which introduced the modern sovereign in 1817. The Strike on the Day sovereign is struck in a brilliant uncirculated finish - a 'proof-like' brilliant uncirculated finish.
The coin bears Benedetto Pistrucci's original garter design which first appeared on sovereigns in 1817. The reverse engraving on the 2017 sovereign was achieved using remastered dies of the original dies used for the 1817 George III sovereign. Struck in 22 carat gold and weighing 7.98 grams of 22 carat gold
Unlike the proof and the uncirculated sovereigns issued in 2017, the BU sovereign has been produced with a plain edge.
The coin is limited to a mintage of 1,817.
All in all a special one off coin
A special edition coin for a special year for the sovereign.
