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 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.
If previous years are anything to go by, five coin sets for 2023 will contain:
- 2023 Elizabeth II Gold Proof Quintuple Sovereign
- 2023 Elizabeth II Gold Proof Double Sovereign
- 2023 Elizabeth II Gold Proof 'full' Sovereign
- 2023 Elizabeth II Gold Proof Half Sovereign
- 2023 Elizabeth II Gold Proof Quarter Sovereign
What Will 2023 Sovereigns Look Like?
In recent years, Sovereigns have featured a range of commemorative designs, authorised for royal anniversaries. For instance, coins in the 2022 Sovereign family featured a special royal arms reverse, issued to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
We know that the obverse of 2023 Sovereigns - from Quintuple Sovereigns to Quarters - will likely feature Jody Clark’s portrait of Elizabeth II, in use on British money since 2015. Most gold Sovereigns feature Benedetto Pistrucci's image of St George and the Dragon on their reverse. It’s a design crafted in the early nineteenth century for the first modern Sovereigns but will it be used again in 2023?
