The 2022 Double Sovereign Gold Proof Coin

Honouring the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II


In 2022 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will become the first British monarch to mark 70 years on the throne. In honour of her Platinum Jubilee, our 2022 Sovereign Collection features the heraldic symbols that form Her Majesty’s official coat of arms.

The 2022 Double Sovereign Gold Proof Coin features the crowned Lion of England, the ‘King of Beasts’, representing strength, pride and courage. It is one of Her Majesty’s oldest heraldic symbols, dating back to King Richard I, the ‘Lionheart’, in the 12th Century. It is also one of The Queen’s Beasts, ten imposing sculptures representing the lineage of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that watched over her Coronation at Westminster Abbey in 1953.

In tribute to Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, we have combined traditional hand craftsmanship with the best of modern minting technology to ensure that every design detail of this strictly limited edition gold coin is emphasised by our finest proof quality finish. Each coin is presented in a bespoke display case alongside a numbered certificate which guarantees its specification and authenticity.


The Sovereign is one of the world’s most famous coins with a history stretching back over 500 years. First introduced in the late 15th Century when King Henry VII demanded a ‘new money of gold’ to demonstrate the power of his reign, the Sovereign was a favourite of Tudor monarchs until its minting came to an end during the reign of James I. Some 200 years later, Britain found itself in an economic crisis that led to the Great Recoinage of 1816, and the re-introduction of the Sovereign to replace the Guinea.

The design for the new ‘Modern Sovereign’ was created by the great Benedetto Pistrucci, whose dynamic image of St George slaying the dragon became the ‘standard’ Sovereign design. It has featured on almost all annual Sovereign releases since its introduction in 1817, only changed on rare occasions and generally only for significant royal events or anniversaries. Now, to honour Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, East India Company Collections is proud to introduce the 2022 Gold Proof Sovereign Collection, featuring a new heraldic design to mark this historic milestone.
