What Are Sovereign Sets?
The first modern Sovereigns were struck in 1817 in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars. Over the next century, these gold coins became prized across the British Empire, trusted to contain a known and significant quantity of gold.
In the past, gold Sovereign sets were only issued by The Royal Mint to mark coronations. A very small number of proof coins were struck for Her Majesty's 1953 coronation but not issued. Proof Sovereigns would not be regularly struck until 1979 and a proof set would not be offered until 1980. Now they're a regular feature of The Royal Mint's offer, sought after by serious collectors as a means of acquiring an annual Sovereign range in one fell swoop.
