1957 Sovereigns
Not every date exists for gold sovereigns. In fact gold sovereigns were not issued for circulation after 1932, although the Royal Mint resumed production in 1957 partly to meet world demand for gold bullion coins.
The only dates minted between 1932 and decimalisation were 1957 to 1959, and then 1962 to 1968. these dates all bear the first portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as used on almost all pre-decimal coins, with the familiar St. George & Dragon design on the reverse.
Of these dates 1957 and 1959 are the two most difficult to find. Because it is one of the more difficult dates to find, we ensure that we keep extra stocks of them.

Designs & Description
All Elizabeth II sovereigns from 1957 to 1968 share the same obverse (head) design, the young first portrait of the queen, which was used from 1953 to 1967. The reverse is the familiar St. George & Dragon design originally engraved by Benedetto Pistrucci about 1817. The edge of the 1957 sovereign is interesting, there are 168 grains on the milled edge instead of 108 on other Elizabeth II sovereigns. This graining is necessarily much finer. It is quite easy to be able to distinguish a 1957 from any other date simply by looking at its edge. Our third photograph shows the milled edges of two sovereigns, a 1957 sovereign on top of a different date of Elizabeth II sovereign.
