The " Legend " :
British Sovereigns have circulated for over 500 years - since the reign of King Henry VII ( 1485 - 1509 ) and were minted throughout the British Empire in several different countries. From the time of Queen Victoria until Britain went off the gold standard, Sovereigns were minted as Gold Coins with the value of one pound. This was the same monetary system composed of quids, bobs, farthings, and guineas. Today British Sovereigns are known and recognized worldwide. They are internationally accepted and respected ( next to 20 Francs - France , 20 Francs - Belgium , 20 Lire - Italy , 20 Lire - Sardinia , 20 Francs - Switzerland , 20 Francs - Austria , 20 Lei - Romania , 20 Francs - Tunisia , 20 Mark - Germany / Prussia , Hamburg , etc. , 20 Francs - Hungary , 20 Kroner - Denmark , 20 Kronor - Sweden , 5 and 10 Roubles - Russia ,10 Gulden - Netherland , and Gold Coins from South America like 5 Pesos - Argentina , 10,000 Reis - Brazil , 5 Pesos - Colombia and 5 Pesos - Uruguay ). They were used as emergency money by World War II Allied pilots. Even in the recent Iraqi War, American pilots carried these historic Gold Coins in case they were downed over Iraq. Due to the benefits to these Gold Coins, which include true historical significance, high investor demand and true scarcity these Gold Coins are very popular among collectors and investors.
