2003 Gold Sovereigns - St. George & Dragon Design
2003 sovereigns and half sovereigns revert to the familiar and historic St. George and Dragon reverse, although we still have stocks of the 2002 issue with shield reverse.
Sovereign Issue Limits
For 2000, the issue limit was only 250,000, the lowest bullion sovereign mintage for over 120 years. For 2001, the issue limit was set even lower at a maximum of 100,000. We now know the issue limits for 2003 will be only 100,000 the same as last year.
Year 2003 Gold Sovereigns
Year 2003 gold sovereigns are being produced by the mint in two versions, ordinary uncirculated "bullion" grade, and "proofs" for sale to collectors.
Uncirculated "Bullion" Version
This will be only the fourth time since 1982 that ordinary bullion sovereigns have been produced. As with the millennium year, we expect these new sovereigns to be very popular.
The issue limit for year 2000 was set at 250,000. This was the lowest mintage figure, apart from proof versions, for over 100 years. The limit for 2001 and 2002 was even lower at only 100,000 of each year.
We now know the Royal Mint's issue limit will be only 100,000 for 2003.
