1989 Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Five Pound Quintuple Sovereign Coin 500th Anniversary

1989 Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Five Pound Quintuple Sovereign 500th Anniversary Boxed
(VAT Exempt)
Highly-collectable 1989 Quintuple Sovereign from The Royal Mint. This coin was struck to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the gold Sovereign. Introduced in the reign of Henry VII, these large and prestigious Tudor coins gave their name to the modern Sovereign, introduced in 1817. This commemorative Five Sovereign reflects the rich, decorative designs of the historic Sovereign with a unique obverse and reverse design, both by British artist Bernard Sindall. His obverse shows an enthroned portrait, surrounded by gothic lettering is the first coinage portrait of Elizabeth II to show the Queen full length, seated upon a throne. A ‘U’ mintmark below the throne confirms the brilliant uncirculated finish used by the UK’s national mint to strike this coin. The reverse shows the crowned royal arms set on a Tudor rose. The reverse legend is unusual in that it uses the word ‘Sovereign’ - the first time this denomination has been named on the coin itself. This celebratory design was only used on Half Sovereigns, 'full' Sovereigns, Double Sovereigns and Quintuple Sovereigns issued in 1989. This BUnc Five Sovereign is one of 10,000 authorised for issue in this presentation with 7,936 produced. It’s struck in 39.94 grams of 22-carat (916.7) gold. We’re offering this piece in its original box from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity. VAT and CGT free.
