Three-coin proof Sovereign set from The Royal Mint. This 2002 Sovereign set contains a Double Sovereign, a 'full' Sovereign and a Half Sovereign, all featuring Timothy Noad's special reverse design, authorised for Her Majesty the Queen's Golden Jubilee. These coins were issued as international celebrations marked an impressive milestone for Elizabeth II: fifty years on the throne. She succeeded her father, George V, in 1952 and was crowned the follow year. Five decades on, Britain and the Commonwealth gilded themselves for the anniversary as the monarch completed an extensive royal tour which continued despite the deaths of Princess Margaret and the Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Noad's reverse design looks to the reign of Queen Victoria for inspiration, his crowned shield and wreath engraving clearly inspired by mid-nineteenth century Sovereigns. This one-year-only patter, used across the three coins in this collection, is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of the Queen, introduced to UK currency in 1998. Cumulatively, the three 22 carat gold coins in this set weigh 27.95 grams, equating to a pure gold content of 25.62 grams. You'll recieve your 2002 Two Sovereign, 'full' Sovereign and Half Sovereign in their original green leather presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming that this set is one of just 3,947 of its kind issued by The Royal Mint in this year.

2002 Golden Jubilee Sovereigns

Most gold Sovereigns feature an instantly-recognisable image of Saint George to the reverse. The work of an Italian artist named Benedetto Pistrucci, this engraving was created for the first modern Sovereigns and Half Sovereigns, issued in 1817.

2002 Sovereigns mark a rare departure from this pattern, boasting a on-year-only reverse, authorised by The Royal Mint to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen's Golden Jubilee. The design features a shield of royal arms with a crown above in the centre of a laurel wreath, the date at the bottom. It's the work of heraldic artist Timothy Noad and is inspired by the coinage of Queen Victoria. Many of her Sovereigns featured a similar wreath and shield reverse.

Noad's design is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Elizabeth II. In use on British coinage between 1998 and 2015, this is the fourth definitive effigy seen on Her Majesty's money. It's accompanied by a legend that reads 'ELIZABETH · II · DEI · GRA REGINA · FID · DEF'.
