Celebrate a rare event in exclusive style

The Royal Mint is delighted to announce an exclusive event indeed. To mark the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, on Sunday 2 June 2013 we will strike a very limited number of Britain’s flagship coin: the Sovereign.

In June, the Queen becomes only the second British monarch ever to celebrate the 60th anniversary of her Coronation. She follows in the footsteps of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria. Yet she also makes history, as collectors will note with interest that no commemorative coins were struck to mark the same landmark anniversary for Queen Victoria. This makes the new Sovereign all the more exclusive and desirable, as not only is it a striking coin of beauty, but it is also one of history. 

Thus, on the very Sunday of the anniversary, our Head of Production, Gavin Elliott, personally oversaw the minting of the new coin. Just 2,013 of these gold Sovereigns were minted to Brilliant Uncirculated standard that day. He signed with his own hand an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity that will attest to the provenance of each and every coin struck that day.

This was only the second time in history that The Royal Mint had struck coins ‘on the day’ - the only other occasion being at the height of the Diamond Jubilee weekend. Those Sovereigns sold out extremely quickly, many before they were even issued; and it is highly likely that this stunning selection will, too.

The Royal Mint have a beautiful Sovereign range, and this premium 2013 Coronation Day Brilliant Uncirculated Sovereign most certainly equals the others in splendour and quality. Either as a gift or a personal memento, the Sovereign is a coin that will be cherished for years to come. It will always be a reminder of the 2nd June, the day that it was specially struck to honour Her Majesty. Do not let the opportunity to own an exclusive piece of history pass you by.

The images are quite enlarged.

The item arrives not looking very impressive and once the coin is eventually found it is very small.

Quite dissapointed , would rather have bought a much cheaper item.

Even if it is gold, its double the cost of its gold weight.

This is a delightful souvenir of the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation - a bit special! Delivery was somewhat slow (ordered 4 June, delivered 19 June) and celebration carboard box containing cased Sovereign suffered some crush damage in mail (case and coin in good order). Perhaps better packaging required?
