The Royal Mint began producing sovereigns in 1817 and production continues to date. Originally minted as a circulating coin, it is now classified as bullion.
After the start of the first World War, the British Sovereign was replaced with paper money and did not return after the war. However, it was still heavily used in the Middle East and, after demand increased, the coin was re-struck, beginning in 1957.
