Gold Sovereigns from the reign of King Edward VII are dated 1902-1910 and are not encountered nearly as often as succeeding monarchs George V or Elizabeth II.
Minting of British gold sovereign coins dates back beyond 1604, the last year of mintage for the previous English gold sovereign coins. It wasnt until the Great Recoinage of 1816 that the United Kingdom brought back production of a gold sovereign coin featuring the image of the reigning monarch on the obverse.
Modern British Gold Sovereign coins were introduced in 1817 and remained in steady production until 1917, with full circulation of the coins as currency continuing until 1932. These gold coins were struck off and on during the 20th century, with a brief one-year striking in 1925 and continuous production picking back up in 1957 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
