1869 British Sovereign Early Queen Victoria Unc
1869 Sovereign with the early bust of Queen Victoria (used on all the Sovereigns minted from 1837 to 1887) on the obverse, and on the reverse is a crowned shield similar to those featured on the very first sovereigns, surrounded by a laurel wreath.
The sovereign was a circulating coin in Great Britain and the Colonies until the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. It was recognized and accepted all over the world, and in fact was used as money in many countries when the parties involved wanted to trade in gold. Until the introduction of the Krugerrand 1oz Gold coin in 1967 the Gold Sovereign was the most widely owned bullion coin, and most of the billion or so sovereigns minted are still in existence.
The Sovereign contains 0.2354 Troy Oz of Gold, 22 karat (91.67%, alloyed with Copper). This coin is in Extra Fine circulated condition, a nice example. Total 1862 mintage was 7,836,413.
