2021 Alfred The Great Two Ounce Gold Proof Coin

Uk21AG2O 2021 Alfred The Great Two Ounce Gold Proof Coin Boxed
(VAT Exempt)
2oz gold Alfred the Great coin from a limited edition of just 125. Did you know that 2021 marks 1,150 years since legendary Anglo-Saxon king Alfred the Great was crowned? Alfred became King of Wessex in 871 while his kingdom was threatened by marauding Vikings. 1,150 years later, we remember Alfred for his success in pushing back his Danish rivals, becoming the dominant ruler among the small kingdoms that occupied the British Isles in the ninth century. He’s also known for his legal and military reform, his support for learning and his piety and fairness. To celebrate the achievements of this remarkable early English monarch, The Royal Mint has released a small range of commemorative pieces, including this £200 / Two Hundred Pound gold coin. The range features a fascinating reverse design by artist John Bergdahl, inspired by the Alfred Jewel, a masterpiece of early medieval goldsmithing, found in a field in Somerset and now in the Ashmolean Museum. This piece has a diameter of 40.00 millimetres and is struck in 62.42 grams of 24 carat gold. It’s finished to the Mint’s fine proof standard. The obverse features Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, in use on British coinage since 2015. This Alfred the Great coin comes in its original presentation case from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
