George III

The coins produced in the reign of George III can be considered one of the first modern gold Sovereign coins. The Sovereign’s front design features George facing to the right, crowned with a laurel wreath. The date appears alongside the legend on the side of the Sovereign. The coin is also identifiable through its inverted die axis.

The gold Sovereign from the start of its production would bear the popular St. George and the Dragon design created by Benedetto Pistrucci on the reverse. The side of the coin features the motto of the Order of the Garter (English - shame on him who thinks evil of it, Middle French - Honi soit qui mal y pense).
