2017 Gold Proof Quarter Sovereign Coin 200th Anniversary

SVQ17 2017 Gold Proof Quarter Sovereign Coin 200th Anniversary Boxed
from
£225.00
(VAT Exempt)
Gold proof 200th anniversary 2017 Quarter Sovereign from The Royal Mint. This tiny 22-carat gold coin is from a limited edition of just 2,442 issued in this individual presentation. Though the surface of this piece measures only 13.50 millimetres, the talented team at the UK's national mint have managed to reproduce a remarkable historic design on the reverse of this coin. Like other proof collectables from the 2017 Sovereign family, this Quarter Sovereign features the original St George and the dragon design used on the first milled Sovereigns, struck in 1817. The instantly-recognisable motif is enclosed by a garter band and England's patron saint holds a broken staff, rather than a sword. While Benedetto Pistrucci's classic design is now two centuries old, the Quarter Sovereign is a rather new innovation, only introduced in 2009. These 1.99 gram coins are exactly a quarter of the mass of a standard 'full' Sovereign and can now regularly be found in proof Sovereign Sets. This pre-owned 2017 Quarter Sovereign is offered in a screw-top capsule, inside its original case of issue from The Royal Mint with its numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
