The 2022 Sovereign Gold Proof Three Coin Set

HONOURING THE PLATINUM JUBILEE OF HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II

STRICTLY LIMITED TO ONLY 300 SETS WORLDWIDE

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. This strictly limited-edition Gold Proof Three Coin Set contains the 2022 Sovereign, Half Sovereign and Quarter Sovereign.

The 2022 Sovereign displays the crest at the top of the royal arms which features the St Edward’s Crown, worn by The Queen at her Coronation and now the centerpiece of the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London.

The 2022 Half Sovereign features the Unicorn of Scotland, believed to symbolise bravery, innocence and intelligence. Before the 1603 Act of Union the Scottish coat of arms featured two unicorns, but when James I became king of both Scotland and England, one unicorn was replaced by the English lion. The 2022 Quarter Sovereign contains the shield that sits at the heart of the coat of arms and displays the emblems of the different nations of the United Kingdom.

Each coin is finished to our finest proof quality, every design detail crystal clear thanks to a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and the best of modern minting technology. The three gold proof coins are presented in a bespoke display case alongside a numbered certificate which guarantees the specification and authenticity of this exclusive collection.

Details-

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.
