2022 Struck On The Day Sovereign Platinum Jubilee MS 70

2022 Elizabeth II Gold BU Sovereign Strike of the Day MS 70 Graded
(VAT Exempt)
Strike of the Day Platinum Jubilee brilliant uncirculated Sovereign, graded MS 70 Matte by the Numismatic Guaranty Company. 6 February 2022 marks exactly seventy years since Elizabeth II acceded to the throne. She became Queen on the death of her father in 1952 and is now the first British monarch to celebrate seven decades of rule. To mark this unprecedented anniversary, The Royal Mint has offered a range of commemorative coins including a special Sovereign with a one-year-only reverse. The majority of these gold coins feature the image of Saint George but for 2022, this has been replaced with an interpretation of the royal arms by heraldic artist Timothy Noad. This is paired with Jody Clark’s fifth official portrait of Her Majesty, introduced in 2015. This ‘Strike of the Day’ example is from a highly limited presentation of just 1,200 pieces making it much scarcer than the regular 2022 proof Sovereign. These SOTD coins are offered in The Royal Mint’s Brilliant Uncirculated or BU striking standard which provides a finer finish and a higher level of detail than comparable bullion coins. This graded edition comes in its holder from NGC, displaying the grade an a unique identifying number of the label.
