The gold sovereign coin was originally a legal tender in the UK before becoming a bullion coin. The sovereign coin is named after the English gold sovereign that was produced for the fast time in 1603. The coin was part of the Great Recoinage done in 1816. Upon release, the coin was unpopular because people preferred banknotes. The coin became popular when the law limited the production of paper currency.

Currently, the 2021 gold sovereign coin is primarily considered a bullion coin in the UK, although it’s still has legal tender value. Orders of 25 coins are packed in tubes while large order of 500 coins come in monster boxes.
