(VAT Exempt)
Progress of a Prince gold 'Struck On The Day' Sovereign, issued to celebrate Prince George's 5th birthday. Prince George is the eldest grandchild of King Charles III and is currently second in the line of succession to the British throne. His parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales, welcomed their first child on 22 July 2013. In 2018, the Prince turned five years old and became the subject of a small range of collectable coins issued by The Royal Mint, which also marked his birth and christening with commemorative issues. This Prince George Sovereign comes from a limited edition of just 750 coins, all struck on 22 July 2018. The obverse features Queen Elizabeth II, George's great-grandmother, in a portrait by Jody Clark. The reverse features the image of Saint George, slaying a dragon with the date below. These 2018-dated coins are offered in the original presentation packaging from The Royal Mint, which consists of a cream case with a printed card sleeve bearing an attractive oak leaf motif. A hand-signed certificate of authenticity is enclosed. The coin itself is protected by a clear capsule. The Sovereign features a brilliant uncirculated finish and a plain edge. It is struck in 7.98 grams of 916.7 gold as are all modern 'full' Sovereigns. This is a pre-owned coin, originally issued by The Royal Mint.
