Make sure you duck!

For most people owning a gold sovereign is a nice thing. Its means that you had a bit of cash in the pocket, a nod to your worldly wealth. If you’ve got one now it’s easy to calculate what it’s worth. Along you know how many bullions it is then just multiple that by £7.31. The average is like 9 carats so possible sixty-six quid. If you were flush enough you could put one in a gold ring. Sovereign rings were often worn by members of gangs as the ring itself would cause a significant amount of damage to a person’s face if they were punched by a person wearing such a ring. It’s reassuring to know that if you are hit be one then you’ve been hit by sixty-six pounds worth or gold. If the thug as got a handful then that’s sixty-six times five so that’s three hundred and thirty pounds worth of hitting. If there really rich and the other hand is covered, and they get in an old one two that’s six hundred and sixty pounds monetary value of gold that’s just whacked you one. Nice to know that you worth that much isn’t it. They never brought out toe rings as, unless the criminal gangland fraternity start wearing flip flops, they would be seen on the foot. If they did then that’s one thousand three hundred and twenty pounds worth of being hit.

Whilst they can render the victim disfigured the rings are definitely not as beautiful as a diamond engagement ring. If you are looking for one of these you would better of looking at https://www.comparethediamond.com/diamond-engagement-rings. However having the sovereign ring hit you if you still conscious then it maybe a good idea to go and quickly shove some plaster of Paris over your face. It won’t help sooth the pain in fact, it might make it worse. However, you can then make a mould out of it. If they’ve hit you with a “heads” side then all you then need to do is go and find a villain who has one with the tails side on their hand. Call them a muppet and their Mother a hamster or something and they will oblige you with a punch (hopefully not to a value of any more than three hundred and twenty-five pounds). Now you’ve got a match you can make your second mould and use it to make chocolate coins!

This man is B A (it stands for Bad Attitude) Baracus. He wore a lot of gold sovereigns and liked to hit people and throw them through the air. He was also completely averse to boarding planes and flying. Mainly because with all that bling he would set of airport security. I might inherent a gold sovereign ring from my Uncle one day. It’s a head side if your wondering.  Just saying.
