The first William IV gold Sovereign design features a portrait of the King bareheaded, with the hair under focus it is finely engraved. The prominent legend on the edges of the coin reads "GULIELMUS IIII D:G:BRITANNIAR:REX F:D" and "Anno 1837". The border teeth are also taller and finer than the second design.
In contrast, the design of the second bust features more coarse hair. George’s bust also faces the second I in Britanniar as opposed to the second N with the first Sovereign design. The majority of gold Sovereigns under King William IV's rule were the second variant.
