1954 Gold Sovereigns Do Not Exist
Sorry to tell you this if that is what you were looking for, but at least now you can stop looking, and think about an alternative.
1954 Gold Sovereigns Were Not Issued
Neither were half sovereigns.
Not every date exists for gold sovereigns. In fact gold sovereigns were not issued for circulation after 1932, although the Royal Mint resumed production in 1957 partly to meet world demand for gold bullion coins.
The only dates minted during this period were 1937 which were only issued as part of a four coin set, and is quite expensive, and 1953 for Elizabeth II, and these were not issued even for collectors.
You might, then, think it strange that we should publish a page specifically about a non-existent coin, but there is good reason for this. Several times each week we receive telephone calls asking for...
...a 1954 sovereign. We explain that we cannot supply one because it does not exist, and the next question we usually get is "why not?" If we were to ask the Royal Mint, I doubt that we would get an answer, yet our customers always expect us to have the answers. That's why we have taken this unusual step of answering the question before it even gets asked. If you found this page because you were looking for a 1954 sovereign, then we have just given you the answer you need, even if it is not the answer you wanted to hear!
What's the Alternative?
If you are a gold sovereign collector, there is no alternative, however if like many of our customers you are looking for an unusual gift, we do have a few suggestions:-
An 1854 sovereign. It's quite an early Victorian, so we can't be sure of always having one in stock, but we can try.
We have 1954 coin sets in stock. Prices vary according to condition.
We could try to locate a different gold coin for you, but we tend not to keep them in stock. Krugerrands did not appear until 1967.
