The parliament brought a new act out in the 3rd of August 1816
stating that the guinea should be replaced by a new coin. This new
coin became the sovereign.

George III sovereign has only got one obverse and one reverse.

The obverse and the reverse was by Benedetto Pistrucci.

The world famous sovereign reverse (which is still used today) was
first used on the sovereign of 1817.

George III sovereign was only issued for  three years.
