The Sovereign, Part 3

April 15, 2018

The Sovereign is the only coin in the world to be named after the King. Since about the year 1250, the title of Sovereign has been used to define the King of England. Therefore when King Henry VII in 1489 decided that a new regal coinage be created for England, he decreed that it be named the Sovereign, in his honor.

The Sovereign coin has now gone on to take its own place of prestige in the world of numismatics. It is indeed a leader of all rare coins due to its prestige and longevity. This new series of Golden Art will take you through the history, significance, and extraordinary value opportunity of the Sovereign coin. It is perhaps the greatest rare coin in the world for the money.

It is incredibly undervalued and it is Golden Art’s strong belief that it has nowhere to go but up. In Part 3, we will be explaining what makes Sovereigns valuable.

In 1990, with rare coin values in their infancy, Greg Holloway smashed the record books with the first sale in world history of any rare coin to bring over $1 million. Despite the fact that the world was in recession at the time, this transaction proved that rare coins have great appeal beyond economic conditions.

Greg actually began his career in 1970 at the age of 13. Before the end of his teenage years, he was recognized by his peers as a top expert. A virtual fixture at numismatic events, Greg has personally attended 1400 rare coin conventions.

Between 1986 and 1987, Greg was one of the 33 founding dealer members of both PCGS and NGC, the worlds two largest professional coin grading services. He was also one of the six original shareholders and graders of NGC for a brief period of time. In 1987, Greg was also one of the original shareholders of the worlds first real time rare coin trading system.

For over 20 years, Greg has been one of the worlds most prolific and respected instructors in the field of numismatics having given hundreds of webinars and teaching at in person conferences.

Today Greg is still active in all aspects of education of rare coins, having recently written the first ever encyclopedia of large English gold coins. Having been the first person in world history to sell any rare coin for over $1 million, Greg is eminently qualified to search for future $1 million coins that can still be bought for a fraction of this sum.
