6,441,322 bullion sovereigns were minted In 1869.

 
The obverse design is by William Wyon and the reverse by Jean Baptiste Merlen.

Shield back sovereigns are always popular with collectors. This coin is relatively easy to source, but high grade examples are always in demand.

The 1869 shield sovereign is part of the 'die number' series. If you look on the reverse (shield) side of the coin, the die number can be found in-between the rose and the wreath, at the base of the shield.
