The East India Company’s first-ever Sovereigns in a limited edition three coin set

Minted to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria, the 2019 Sovereign Gold Proof coin is the very first Sovereign to be issued in over 400 years of The East India Company’s history. Queen Victoria was declared Empress of India in 1877 adopting India, previously under ‘Company Rule’ into the British Empire.

These incredibly precious Gold Proof Sovereigns are part of the 2019 Queen Victoria Sovereign Collection – a series of sovereign denomination proof coins which celebrate the most iconic coins of Britain’s most famous Monarch.

The set includes the 2019 Sovereign, Half Sovereign and Quarter Sovereign Gold Proof Coins and is strictly limited to just 500 sets worldwide. Each coin features one of Queen Victoria’s most beautiful coin designs, faithfully engraved by our expert craftsmen to create the most prestigious Sovereign collection of 2019. Each coin in the series features the inscription – DIRIGE DEUS GRESSUS MEOS – translated to May God Direct My Steps, as found on Queen Victoria’s Five Pound piece issued in 1837 famously known as Una and the Lion.

The 2019 Sovereign depicts the beautiful the shield reverse as seen on Victoria’s last silver half-crown coins, this faithfully designed Sovereign incorporates the British spade-shaped coat of arms depicted on a single quarter-divided shield, featuring representations of the three realms of the United Kingdom.

The 2019 Half Sovereign features the famous St George and the Dragon motif in a new design inspired by Queen Victoria’s half-sovereign which was issued between 1893 and 1901. This iconic scene is surrounded by the same motto and features the date of issue under the emblem. The Half-Sovereign is only available in either the three coins or five coin set.

Completing the three-coin set is the 2019 Quarter Sovereign which draws its inspiration from Victoria’s one penny to farthing featuring a Seated Britannia, the allegorical symbol of Great Britain, facing right with trident and shield.

Each obverse is uniquely different, which can be seen by examining the beading around the respective coin edge.
