(VAT Exempt)
Highly-collectable 22-carat gold proof Double Sovereign from 1990. This premium coin from The Royal Mint is offered in its original velvet-lined presentation box with a numbered certificate enclosed, confirming that this gold Two Pound coin is one of only 2,000 authorised for distribution in this year. These coins were first minted in 1820 and remained an occasional feature of British currency for the next century and a half. The Double Sovereign has been struck annually since 1997 but individually boxed proof examples remain a rarity. This example features Raphael Maklouf's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II to the obverse, crowned with the Diamond Diadem. The reverse shows the classic St George and the dragon motif, created by Benedetto Pistrucci for the first modern Sovereigns. Double Sovereigns are minted in 15.96 grams of 916.7 gold (actual gold weight: 14.63 grams or 0.4708 troy ounces). The fine proof finish - achieved with multiple strikes of hand-prepared dies - results in fine details, mirrored surfaces and frosted devices, perfectly preserved by a clear capsule. This coin is offered with its numbered certificate, confirming the authenticity of this superb collectors piece.
