The Sovereign 2014 Collection

Relive the golden age of The Sovereign

The Quarter-Sovereign is the newest member of The Sovereign family, introduced in 2009. But like every coin in The Sovereign 2014 Collection it carries with it the prestige of a coin that is respected, and desired, the world over. Struck in 22 carat gold and finished to our renowned Proof quality, The Quarter-Sovereign bears the iconic St George and the dragon design that has graced The Sovereign for almost 200 years. Every detail is simply perfection on this delicate and beautiful gold coin, struck in limited numbers – just 3,000 coins will be available in this limited presentation.

Since 2009 The Quarter-Sovereign has brought the lustrous golden reputation of The Sovereign within reach of collectors and those looking for the perfect gift alike. With the same 22 carat gold, the famous St George and the dragon design and the same unrivalled quality of our Proof finish as every coin in The Sovereign 2014 Collection, it is a work of art in miniature.

The Quarter-Sovereign 2014 will be issued in only 3,000 individual presentations, each one perfected by our craftspeople and presented to you in style, with a wooden case and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. An informative booklet completes the presentation, taking you back to 1914, the golden age of The Sovereign when gold coins were in circulation – though such was their value that they would be found only in the luckiest pockets.

At the outbreak of the First World War, gold was needed to finance Britain's war effort. Lloyd George himself appealed against the hoarding of gold, and posters urged the country to give up their Sovereigns. But demand for The Sovereign did not waver and the coin was struck again regularly for discerning collectors, and those who liked to hold their wealth in gold, from 1957.

The Sovereign 2014 Collection speaks of that same quality and desirability, sought after and admired. The coins are struck in 22 carat gold now, as they were then. They bear the same famous reverse design of St George and the dragon and they carry the portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, whose grandfather, King George V, appeared on The Sovereign of 2014. The Quarter-Sovereign, struck in warm 22 carat gold enhanced by our Proof finish, is such an exquisite gold coin, a most refined addition to your collection or a truly exclusive way to make a gift of gold for a special occasion, a gift that will be cherished and admired for years to come.

I thought the previous Proof Quarter-Sovereign's in their limited presentation boxes were beautiful, but the one 2014 limited presentation box is even more stunning! It comes with an extra mini booklet with information about the Sovereign and the 1914 Sovereign and it's role in the Great War as well as the usual certificate of authority and number.

Another thing I really like is the magnets placed in the wooden coin holder so it will stand for display. A great idea!

I was lucky enough to get a very low number and even an error on mine which no doubt will increase the value! :D

The only thing I dislike is the price, I do think The Royal Mint over charges.
