In 1489 gold had begun to gain acceptance as a currency in England. As a result, King Henry VII instructed the Royal Mint to produce a new gold coin, the Sovereign, which could be used as circulating bullion. The use of this original coin, nearly twice the size and weight of a modern sovereign, came to an end during the reign of James I (who ruled in England from 1603 to 1625) and did not appear for again for 200 years.

The 2000 gold proof sovereign was issued for the millennium year. The obverse bears the fourth portrait of Elizabeth II, whilst the reverse features the traditional St. George and the Dragon design.

This proof coin is struck in 22 carat gold
