    Here's your chance to collect a rather unique sovereign.

    These were only made in one year in India - 1918. Another Indian sovereign was minted in 2018.

    Collect this coin and you're half way toward a nice, 2 coin complete collection of Indian Sovereigns.

    (Though you could ignore the 2018 mintage, since India is no longer owned by the original Sovereign firm ;))


    In India the Sovereign was minted for a little over a year beginning in 1918 - the reverse bearing an "I" mint mark and the obverse the portrait of King George V. The total mintage of these Sovereigns was 1,294,372. By 1919, however, production of all Sovereigns struck in India ceased, and the coin would not return to the sub-continent for nearly a century.

    95 years later, on 17 February 2013, a new partnership between the Royal Mint and MMTC-PAMP India was announced - a five-year license under which the MMTC-PAMP facility at Rojko-Meo Industrial Estate in District Mewat, Haryana would strike the commemorative Indian Sovereigns.

    As with the Sovereigns struck at the Royal Mint in UK, the obverse would bear the official circulating coinage portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse would bear the classic depiction of St. George and the Dragon designed by Benedetto Pistrucci, but once again, like its historical counterpart, distinguished by the "I" mint mark.
