All sovereigns weigh 7.98 grammes, and are made of 22 carat gold (0.917 fine) and have a diameter of 22.05 mm. I have several of these coins available. 1989 was a momentous year, when the world witnessed memorable events such as the fall of the Berlin Wall finally reuniting Germany. This was also a significant year for the United Kingdoms coinage as the gold Sovereign celebrated its 500th anniversary. Maybe you know someone with special memories from 1989, perhaps someone born or married that year? If so mark the moment with this very special version of The Sovereign, struck in 1989 and bearing a Tudor rose on its reverse and an intricate design showing The Queen, seated as at her coronation, on its obverse. In its original packaging, this authentic coin makes a perfect nostalgic gift or a worthy addition to any collection.
