Product Description

The term shield sovereign is usually applied to a Victoria young head sovereign, minted between 1838 and 1887, with a shield as the design on its reverse (back). There were also shield designs used for George IV and William IV, and also in 2002 for Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee year. There is no particular need to refer to any of these other reigns as shields, because no non-shield sovereigns exist for the same dates ranges, whereas for Queen Victoria, the St. George and dragon design was re-introduced in 1871, paired with a young head obverse until 1887.
