Product Description

A ‘shield back’ sovereign typically applies to a young Victoria head sovereign minted between 1838 and 1887. The design of a ‘shield back’ displays a shield on the reverse of the coin, hence their name. This coin will always carry the British design and therefore remain legal tender and exempt from Capital Gains Tax (CGT). This coin is dated 1857 with a London Mint Mark. The image in this photo is an actual representation of the coin for sale.
