How to get Sovereigns in Skull and Bones

To get Sovereigns in Skull and Bones, you first need to reach the Kingpin Infamy Rank and complete the Nose For Business contract. Kingpin is the final Infamy Rank so it may take you a while to reach it. Once you do, you’ll unlock this new currency.

Once you have completed the Nose for Business contract, your Kingpin empire will be set up. This is how you get this currency in Skull and Bones. Each week and season, you will compete to raise your tier in your empire. The more Pieces of Eight you obtain during this time, the more Sovereigns you will get when they are awarded.

Get started early

You can start the Helm contracts early by talking to the bartender in Sainte-Anne. She will teach you how to complete Black Market contracts and show you how to get Pieces of Eight. Getting started early will help you get a grasp on everything before you reach Kingpin rank.
