2022 Platinum Jubilee Gold Proof Five Coin Sovereign Set Queen Elizabeth II
Five coin Sovereign set for 2022: the largest set and the only way to get hold of the 2022 Platinum Jubilee Quintuple Sovereign.
The Platinum Jubilee
In February 2022, Her Majesty the Queen will mark her Platinum Jubilee. This will be the first time that a British monarch has celebrated seventy years on the throne. She succeeded her father on 6 February 1952 and was crowned later the same year.
A range of public events are already planned for the Platinum Jubilee, including a special four-day bank holiday (eagerly anticipated in The Britannia Coin Company office).
The Royal Mint, however, are getting ahead of the curve with jubilee commemorations, authorising a special reverse for their flagship gold coin to mark the occasion. Coins from the 2022 Sovereign family - released in late 2021 - are the ultimate Platinum Jubilee collectible to remember a momentous royal occasion.
The Royal Arms Reverse
Most Sovereigns feature an instantly-recognisable reverse image of Saint George, slaying a dragon.
Coins in this 2022 five-coin proof set mark a rare departure 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.
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. Speaking of the commission he said:
'It was thrilling to be asked to submit designs for The Sovereign once again. The Sovereign is the most special coin in the UK; it represents the pinnacle of minting and has a strong association with the monarch, even in its name.'
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 each of the coins in this set.
Largest 2022 Sovereign Set
Just 700 of these Royal Mint five-coin Sovereign sets have been issued in 2022.
It's a great way to get hold of the entire 2022 Sovereign family in one purchase, including the Five Pound piece which is only available in this set which includes:
- The 2022 Quintuple Sovereign or Five Pound piece - the largest coin in the 2022 Sovereign family: 39.94 grams of 22 carat gold - only available in this presentation
- The 2022 Double Sovereign or Two Pound - twice the weight of a full Sovereign at 15.98 grams
- The 2022 Gold Proof Sovereign - a full Sovereign crafted from 7.98 grams of gold (that's an actual gold weight of 0.23535 troy ounces)
- The 2022 Gold Proof Half Sovereign - 3.99 grams of gold and also available individually via the link
- The 2022 Gold Proof Quarter Sovereign - the smallest coin in the 2022 Sovereign collection weighing in at just 2.00 grams - only available in sets right now, not on its own
There's a great market for Sovereign sets and for Sovereigns with alternate reverses so we're sure these will sell out fast.
Your five 2022 Sovereigns come in their original packaging from The Royal Mint. This comprises of a specially designed card outer box and an attractive presentation case, complete with a detailed information booklet and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
