Each year the release of The Sovereign is eagerly awaited – for The Sovereign is The Royal Mint’s flagship coin, drawing upon a golden history. The Sovereign 2014 Three-Coin Set comprises The Sovereign, The Half-Sovereign and The Quarter Sovereign, all struck in 22 carat gold to our envied Proof quality and all bearing one of the most famous coin designs in the world.
In 2014 we recall a golden age, journeying to 1914, a century ago, a period remembered as a time of elegance and taste. Britain’s circulating gold coinage was a source of great pride, The Sovereign coveted for its accuracy, indeed, perfection. That reputation for excellence endures today. While war brought an end to the gold coin in circulation, The Sovereign was so desired that regular striking began again in 1957. Today The Sovereign is struck in the same 22 carat gold, carrying the same classic St George and the dragon design and bearing the portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, just as The Sovereign of 1914 bore the effigy of her grandfather, King George V.
What better way to add a little of The Sovereign’s elegance and distinction to your collection – a little of that ‘golden age’ – than with a set that includes the essential members of The Sovereign 2014 Collection? The Sovereign, The Half-Sovereign and The Quarter-Sovereign are presented together in a wooden case, complete with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and a booklet that explores the story of The Sovereign at its height.
