The United Kingdom’s gold coins have been around since the 1480. But the two most often collected now are the Britannia, and the Sovereign. The Gold Britannia is more expensive and the largest of the two coins. It’s one ounce of pure gold, 999.9 to be exact, and is a very popular form of bullion. The Gold Sovereign is the smaller coin of the two, but has a great history, and is very collectible among numismatists worldwide. It weighs in at a quarter of an ounce, and has been produced in the UK, Canada, India, Australia, and South Africa during its lifespan.
