The first revised edition of the Token Publishing Ltd imprint of Michael Marsh’s “The Gold Sovereign” was published in 2017 to coincide with the 200th anniversary year of the famous coin. Since then this book, fully revised and updated by Steve Hill of Sovereign Rarities (formerly of Spink and Baldwins) has become the reference work on the sovereign, half sovereign and quarter sovereign.
A new edition, now entitled “The Gold Sovereign Series”, was published in mid-April 2021, and once again it has been updated by Steve Hill with all new sovereigns and fractionals issued since 2017 added. Also, for the very first time, the five sovereign and two sovereign coins are included too, all in one hardbound, profusely illustrated volume, making this the absolutely definitive work on the iconic series. This long-awaited second edition is available to order now. This publication includes an up-to-date rarity and price guide. To order the book, visit Token Publishing.
