(VAT Exempt)
This pre-owned 2019 piedfort Sovereign from The Royal Mint is struck several times using hand-polished dies to give an excellent finish, perfect for collectors. The Piedfort Sovereign was resurrected by the Mint in 2017 after a gap of over 500 years, with this 2019 edition being the third such coin issued. Unlike other years, the 2019 piedfort proof Sovereign have a relatively low limited edition presentation, with only 1,795 coins authorised for production in this fashion. For the seasoned Sovereign collector, they represent an excellent opportunity to acquire a low-mintage coin. In common with most other Sovereigns, the reverse shows the classic depiction of Saint George slaying the dragon by the legendary Italian sculptor, Benedetto Pistrucci. This timeless design has featured periodically on British Sovereigns since 1817. On the obverse, the fifth definitive UK coin effigy of Elizabeth II by Jody Clark can be seen. What sets this UK coin apart from traditional Sovereigns is the fact it’s twice as thick and twice as heavy. It measures 22.05 millimetres in diameter and contains 15.96 grams of 22 carat gold (0.917 fineness), giving it an actual gold weight of 0.4708 troy ounces. Your collectable, pre-owned piedfort Sovereign is issued in the original Royal Mint presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity, and our price includes complimentary insured delivery to all UK addresses.

Piedfort Sovereigns

This is a rare example of a piedfort Sovereign: twice the weight of an ordinary Sovereign and only offered by The Royal Mint since 2017. The Mint has been offering double-weight, double-thickness editions of their modern commemorative coins for sale to the public since 1982 but they're part of a much older tradition, dating back to mediaeval times. These coins were particularly associated with France where 'piedfort' roughly translates as 'heavy measure'.
