2019 Struck On The Day Sovereign Prince Albert

2019 Sovereign Prince Albert Struck On The Day Boxed
£875.00
(VAT Exempt)
Brilliant uncirculated Sovereign with special mint mark, struck on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Prince Albert. Queen Victoria’s consort was born on 26 August 1819 as Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. He met his cousin Victoria before she accession to the throne. They married in February 1840. Though initially unpopular in Britain, Albert became a champion of public causes like education and welfare as well as the campaign to end slavery. His support for the arts, sciences and industry culminated in the Great Exhibition of 1851. Surplus funds raised for the international exhibition, held at the Crystal Palace, funded cultural institutions in South Kensington including the Natural History Museum, the Royal Albert Hall and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Albert died at the age of 42 in December 1861, after which Victoria entered a period of deep mourning, wearing black for the rest of her life. The Royal Mint celebrated his legacy with this Sovereign, struck on the 200th anniversary of his birth. It’s part of a collection, celebrating the life of Victoria who was born in the same year as Albert. This ‘full’ Sovereign is struck in 7.98 grams of 22 carat (916.7) gold to the Mint’s brilliant uncirculated standard with a special matte finish. It features Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen (Victoria’s great-great granddaughter) to the obverse with the reverse showing Pistrucci’s St George and a unique ‘AV’ monogram mint mark to the left of the date. Just 650 of these Prince Albert ‘strike of the day’ Sovereigns were minted on 26 August 2019 and this example comes in its original presentation packaging from The Royal Mint with a hand signed certificate of authenticity enclosed.
