1999 Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Quintuple Sovereign Coin

1999 Gold Brilliant Uncirculated Five Sovereign Coin Boxed
from
£2,100.00
(VAT Exempt)
Gold 1999 Quintuple Sovereign coin in an individual presentation. This premium Royal Mint coin features a brilliant uncirculated finish, typical of individually issued gold Five Sovereign coins, and is offered in its attractive green velvet case of issue. This pre-owned proof coin remains sealed in its original capsule and is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming that its from a maximum mintage of just 1,000 1999 BU Five Sovereigns. Data indicates that 970 were issued. The obverse of this large gold coin features Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, facing right and wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara. This fourth definitive portrait of Her Majesty was in use on British coins issued between 1998 and 2015. The reverse shows the instantly-recognisable image of St George on horseback, depicted slaying a winged dragon in a recreation of his central legend. England's patron saint has been a mainstay of coins in the gold Sovereign family for the last two centuries and this classic design by Benedetto Pistrucci is a sight to behold on the 36.02 millimetre surface of this 1999 piece. Like all modern 22-carat gold Five Pounds produced by the UK's national mint, this one weighs in at 39.94 grams (that's 1.1770 troy ounces of pure gold). An excellent collectors piece.
