On the obverse of the coin, Great Britain Gold Sovereign is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has featured on the Gold Sovereign since 1952 and this is the fifth-generation portrait of the Queen to be used in the series. The portrait shows the Queen aged 89 with the George IV State Diadem Crown.
The reverse side of Great Britain Gold Sovereign coins includes a depiction of St. George on horseback as he slays a dragon. There are various versions of stories about a Christian warrior on a horse slaying a serpent-like beast that dates back to the late Roman era and the early 5th century. In this design, a muscular St. George rides in on horseback with a Corinthian helmet on his head and a sword in his right hand as he rides down the dragon before slaying the beast with his sword.
