2019 Queen Elizabeth II Gold Proof Three Coin Sovereign Set
Limited edition gold proof three-coin 2019 Sovereign set featuring a Half Sovereign, a 'full' Sovereign and a Double Sovereign in their original presentation box.
Royal Mint Gold Proof Sovereign Sets
The very first gold Sovereigns were struck in the 1400s by the Tudor kings and their prestigious legacy was reclaimed when the modern Sovereign was introduced in 1817. Over the next century, Sovereigns became prized across the British Empire, trusted to contain a known and significant quantity of gold.
Sovereigns once circulated across the globe but production ceased with the outbreak of the First World War. Reintroduced in 1957, annual issues attract investors and collectors with limited edition proof Sovereigns - hand-finished for a flawless effect - the most sought-after.
Proof Sovereigns were initially only struck by The Royal Mint to celebrate coronations. The first proof pieces would be issued for collectors in 1979 with limited edition sets offered for the first time in 1980. Since then, boxed sets containing coins from each year's Sovereign family have attracted a dedicated group of collectors.
What Coins Are In 2019 Three Sovereign Sets?
Three coin fractional Sovereign sets issued by The Royal Mint in 2019 contain a range of collectible coinage, including:
- 2019 Gold Proof 'full' Sovereign
- 2019 Gold Proof Half Sovereign
- 2019 Gold Proof Quarter Sovereign
The obverse of each of these coins features Jody Clark's fifth and final portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, in use on British coinage from 2015 until her passing in 2022. The legend used on each of the coins in the set reads: 'ELIZABETH II DEI · GRA · REG · F · D ·'.
The reverses show the instantly recognisable image of Saint George on horseback with the date below. It's an interpretation of the central legend associated with England's patron saint which involves St George slaying a fearsome dragon. This motif was designed in 1817 by Benedetto Pistrucci and has featured on many gold Sovereigns down the centuries.
