Own a tribute to the modern Sovereign...

2017 sees the Bicentenary of the modern Sovereign, the most important numismatic anniversary for decades. 'The King of Coins' pays tribute to the modern Sovereign by exploring the fascinating history of the coin through time.

With a detailed foreword from renowned sculptor Raphael Maklouf, this book pays homage to a coin that has epitomised British quality across the world for the last 200 years.

Beginning in 1489, when the original Sovereign was commissioned by King Henry VII, the 'King of Coins' tracks the development of the Sovereign - from its defining St George and the Dragon reverse to the height of its prominence during the Empire years right through to the creation of the 200th anniversary design for 2017.

Produced to the highest quality, the book features detailed images of the Sovereign through the ages alongside an authoritative narrative that provides key historical background to the coin.
