2019 Queen Elizabeth II Gold Proof Premium Three Coin Sovereign Set
Three-coin 2019 premium gold proof Sovereign set featuring the classic Saint George reverse.
Proof Sovereign Sets
The very first gold Sovereigns were struck in the 1400s by the Tudor kings and their prestigious legacy was reclaimed when the modern Sovereign was introduced in 1817. Over the next century, Sovereigns became prized across the British Empire, trusted to contain a known and significant quantity of gold.
Sovereigns once circulated across the globe but production ceased with the outbreak of the First World War. Reintroduced in 1957, annual issues attract investors and collectors with limited edition proof Sovereigns - hand-finished for a flawless effect - the most sought-after.
Proof Sovereigns were initially only struck by The Royal Mint to celebrate coronations. The first proof pieces would be issued for collector’s in 1979 with limited edition sets offered for the first time in 1980. Since then, boxed sets containing coins from each year's Sovereign family have attracted a dedicated group of collectors.
Three Gold Sovereigns
This set contains a Double Sovereign, a 'full' Sovereign and a Half Sovereign, all dated 2019. In total the three 22 carat coins offer 25.62 grams of fine gold.
Just 450 of these premium three-coin Sovereign sets were issued by The Royal Mint in 2019.
Each coin shows Jody Clark's portrait of Her Majesty the Queen to the obverse, in use on British money since 2015. The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's classic Saint George and the dragon design. His depiction of England's patron saint shows him in the act of slaying the prone beast, crushed beneath his horses hooves.
Collector's Sovereign Set
