King Edward VII
Browse our full range of King Edward VII Sovereigns here.
The King Edward VII Gold Sovereign was produced from 1902 to 1910 and features the only effigy of King Edward VII ever minted on a coin due to his short reign of only 7 years. Despite the short mintage these coins were highly circulated and remained so until World War 1 thus making it difficult to find attractive examples of higher graded coins.
These coins are highly sought after and make a unique addition to any collection!
