A perfect gift for the Sovereign collector. Premium King George V five-coin gold Sovereign mintmark set, assembled by The Royal Mint. This set contains five 'full' Sovereigns, struck in London, India, Canada and South Africa during George's reign (1910-1936). These years represent the high-water mark for international branch mints. There were seven outposts of the Royal Mint operational during his time on the throne, including the main branch in England. Branch mint Sovereigns are identifiable by tiny letters above the date on the reverse: 'I' for Bombay, 'C' for Ottawa and 'SA' for Pretoria, two of which are included in this collection. This set does not include Australian branch mint Sovereigns. London mint Sovereigns do not feature a mintmark. Originally struck for circulation, these five coins are all composed of 7.98 grams each of 22-carat gold. The obverses all feature Australian-born sculptor Bertram Mackennal's portrait of George V while the reverses show the classic St George and the dragon design, created by Benedetto Pistrucci. These assembled sets contain mixed-date King George V Sovereigns in 'Very Fine' grade or better. The coins are each sealed in screw-top capsules inside a premium wooden presentation case with gold lettering to the lid. A numbered certificate of authenticity is enclosed, confirming that this pre-owned set is one of just 500 of this type offered by The Royal Mint.
