 2021 QEII Full Sovereign 

This 2021 Full Sovereign is a gold coin minted in the United Kingdom. It belongs to the Sovereign series, which has a long and prestigious history dating back to 1489 during the reign of Henry VII. The Sovereigns were initially used as circulation coins and were made from 23-carat gold, known as "crown gold," with a purity of 91.67%. However, since 1817, they have been minted in 22-carat gold with a purity of 91.67%.

The obverse side of the 2021 Full Sovereign features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The design on the obverse may vary depending on the particular effigy used during that year. The reverse side showcases the iconic St. George and the Dragon design, created by Benedetto Pistrucci, a talented Italian engraver.

The diameter of the 2021 Full Sovereign is approximately 22.05 millimeters, and it weighs 7.98 grams. The coin contains 0.2354 troy ounces (approximately 7.322 grams) of pure gold. This gold content remains consistent across all Sovereign coins issued after 1817.
