Introduction

Tavex is pleased to present the Queen Victoria sovereign gold coin, part of Britain’s most famous and longest issued gold coin series. The sovereign, introduced for the first time more than 500 years ago, is world renowned for its impeccable accuracy, strong liquidity and high quality. Hailed throughout the British Empire as “the chief coins of the world”, they were at the heart of the classical gold standard, playing a key role in international finance and trade. Sovereign gold coins were also used as legal tender currency by more than 20 countries during the nineteenth century, which is testimony to their widespread influence. This legacy is treasured by the current UK government which still deems the Queen Victoria sovereign gold coin as official legal tender. Gold sovereigns have a real and permanent tangible value, and thus will make a great addition to any investor’s portfolio. 

Why Buy

  • Sovereigns are Britain’s most famous coins. Gold sovereigns are Britain’s most cherished coins and likewise one of the most recognised gold pieces in the world, representing the golden age of the British Empire.
  • Sovereign gold coins are liquid. With more than 700 million pieces minted since the 1800s, the sovereign gold coins are supported by a deep and liquid market.  
  • Sovereigns are money. All gold sovereigns minted after 1837 are considered legal tender and are exempt from Capital Gains Tax in the United Kingdom.
  • Sovereign gold coins are internationally recognised. The rich 500-year history of the gold sovereign and its effigy of Queen Victoria, ruler of the largest empire in human history, support the coin’s exchangeability worldwide.
  • Sovereign gold coins are the equivalent of savings. Gold sovereigns are an ideal choice for any long-term saver who appreciates the security and stability of owning physical legal tender gold coins.
  • Sovereign gold coins are an excellent way to diversify your portfolio. Gold’s low correlation with other financial assets makes sovereign gold coins serve as a portfolio hedge against market risk.

History

The Queen Victoria sovereign gold coin

The obverse of the coin portrays Queen Victoria, Britain’s longest serving monarch and consequently the longest portrayed regent on the gold sovereign. Born in London in 1819, she was crowned as queen at the age of 18, and her reign lasted almost 64 years. Her reign saw Britain achieve great economic and social progress, a period dubbed “the Victorian era”. It was a time of remarkable growth, where the introduction of the steamship and expansion of the railways facilitated trade, there were great new technological advances, including telephones, telegraphs and cars, communications improved, London was the financial centre of the world, British industry flourished, and the Empire prospered. Likewise, a period of prolonged peace referred to as Pax Britannica, temporarily disrupted by the Crimean and Boer wars, during the Victorian era was a major factor that contributed to world trade and Britain’s prosperity. Although Queen Victoria during this period ruled as a constitutional monarch, meaning she had curtailed powers, she was still head of the largest Empire in human history and was probably the most powerful woman ever to live. Her rule ended in 1901 when she passed away. Her eldest son Edward VII assumed the crown and he would be the next in line to have his effigy portrayed on the gold sovereign.
