It is stressed that the following prices are a guide only, and in UK pounds. They represent what you might have to pay a dealer, rather than what you might be able to sell them for. I can take no personal responsibility for their accuracy, although every effort has been made to ensure that they have been copied correctly. In addition it should be noted that the price of gold coins is very dependent on the bullion value of gold, which in 2013 is significantly higher than when some of the following prices were published.

As indicated in the note below, despite lower quotes in these dated prices the bullion value of a sovereign is about £170. Current bullion values may be available on my Bullion Value page

Condition Grades

The headings F, VF, EF and Unc refer to the condition grades of the coins. A guide to evaluating grades is found on my UK Coin Values Index page.
Proof coins relatively often found are listed, but the absence of a mention does not mean that a proof of that year does not exist.


Sovereign
Gold Pound
Sovereign (again)
Unite
Laurel

Note that recent rises in the cost of gold mean
that the minimum value of a sovereign should be about 175 pounds.

The lack of a value for a grade means either that the coin is rarely found in that grade or that it has bullion value only.

Bullion Value

On 22nd December 2013 gold bullion was $1162 per Troy oz (£711). The sovereign contains 0.2354 oz of gold, and with a typical trade premium of 5% this gives a bullion value (to purchase) of 0.2354 1162 x 1.05 = about $288 or £176.

Please note that prices for sovereigns after 1978 given above were valid in 2007 when gold prices were lower. Current bullion values may be available on my Bullion Value page
