William IV Sovereigns – scarce in any grade

The last British king from the House of Hanover, William IV ruled from 1830 to 1837. With his reign so short, and the mintages of his gold coins so low, it is no surprise that William IV Sovereigns are scarce to rare across the grades – making this opportunity very important.

Eye-catching, historic designs…

The William IV Gold Sovereign 3-Coin Set comprises the 1832, 1835 & 1836 dates. The sole British monarch to issue only Shield Sovereigns, the reverse of each William IV coin is distinguished by the armorial majesty of Jean Baptiste Merlen’s famous motif. Capturing the distinctive features of the monarch known as ‘the Sailor King’, the obverse portrait was designed by William Wyon.

Australian history in your hands…

Struck at the Royal Mint in London, the sovereigns of William IV are notable for the powerful connection to Australia.

From the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788, a wild mix of foreign coinage circulated in Australia. In 1826, however, it was proclaimed that only British coins would be legal tender in the colony, and a huge influx of British coinage followed – including sovereigns. The sovereigns of William IV were issued immediately after this momentous change, and would have been used by those who lived through the nation’s ‘wild colonial days’.

Unquestionably rare…

As with all pre-Victorian Era sovereigns, William IV sovereigns are rare in good quality, largely due to the low mintages. William IV sovereigns represent less than 1% of the total number of sovereigns struck! With millions of coins either recycled to mint new sovereigns or melted for the gold, these key coins are rare in superior quality.
