2022 Queen Elizabeth II Gold Bullion Full Sovereign Platinum Jubilee

2022 Elizabeth II Gold Bullion Sovereign Platinum Jubilee Reverse
(VAT Exempt)
Bullion 2022 gold Jubilee Sovereigns: available now. 2022 bullion Platinum Jubilee Sovereigns feature the same new reverse design as their proof counterparts. It’s inspired by the royal coat of arms and is the work of Timothy Noad who also crafted the reverse of 2002 Sovereigns. The 2022 alternate reverse was authorised to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. She acceded in 1952, aged just 25, and will become the first British monarch to celebrate seventy years on the throne in February 2022. Her portrait by Jody Clark, in use since 2015, appears on the obverse of these gold coins. Like all Sovereigns, these Platinum Jubilee editions are struck in 7.98 grams of 22 carat gold with a surface of 22.05 millimetres in diameter. A great choice for investors, these bullion finish pieces are available with low premiums. All Sovereigns are exempt from Capital Gains Tax as UK legal tender and free from VAT in the UK and EU as investment grade gold. You’ll receive your pre-owned 2022 Jubilee Sovereign loose, packaged carefully for delivery by our experienced team.

The Story of the Sovereign

The first Sovereigns were struck during the reign of Tudor king Henry VIII. Centuries later, a new gold coin bearing this name was introduced, following a major overhaul of British coinage. This Sovereign, first minted in 1817, established specifications that are still strictly followed today.

All Sovereigns weight exactly 7.98 grams and are composed of 22 carat gold. That’s a gold weight of 7.32 grams or .2354 troy ounces. Sovereigns measure 22.05 millimetres in diameter and have a nominal face value of one pound sterling though their gold content means they command significantly higher prices.

Sovereigns once circulated across the globe, a symbol of the British Empire, trusted to contain a known quantity of gold. Regular production ceased with the First World War, only resuming in 1957. Today, Sovereigns are offered annually in a range of sets and finishes for collectors and investors.

Platinum Jubilee Reverse

Most Sovereigns feature an instantly-recognisable reverse image of Saint George, slaying a dragon.

This 2022 Sovereign is one of the rare departures from this tradition, instead featuring a design inspired by Elizabeth II's royal arms. Crafted by heraldic artist Timothy Noad and the subject of much speculation ahead of its unveiling, the reverse is reminiscent of that which appeared on One Pound coins designed by Eric Sewell.

The design has been authorised to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. In February 2022 she’ll mark an unprecedented seventy years since she acceded to the throne in 1952. Noad was also responsible for the reverse of the 2002 Sovereign, struck for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, so it's fitting that he should be called upon again for this milestone issue.

His reinterpretation of the royal coat of arms is paired with Jody Clark's fifth official effigy of Elizabeth II which appears on the obverse of the 2022 Sovereign.

Gold Bullion Sovereigns

These 2022 Sovereigns are finished to bullion standard. They are intended for investors though the alternate reverse and the prestige of the Sovereign adds collectibility. They're a great option if you’re looking to commemorate an important royal anniversary.

Like all Sovereigns, these are exempt from Capital Gains Tax as UK legal tender and free from VAT in the UK and EU as investment grade gold.

We also have a range of 2022 proof Sovereigns and sets available, including:
