A Minting First for a Special Anniversary

Celebrating 200 Years of the ‘Modern’ Sovereign

In 2017, we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the ‘modern’ Sovereign – a coin unrivalled in quality, accuracy and design. To mark this defining moment in the coin’s history, we are looking back 200 years to the moment the 22 carat gold coin was revived and Benedetto Pistrucci created his masterpiece of design.

For this special occasion we are issuing a Piedfort edition of The Sovereign for the first time. Just 3,500 will be released, struck in twice the thickness of 22 carat gold as The Sovereign and finished to Proof standard with a milled edge.

Piedfort coins originate from France and were first seen in the twelfth century. Translated to English the word means ‘heavy measure’. Piedforts have always been prestige pieces, originally intended to be given or displayed as a show of wealth and esteem. Piedfort coins from The Royal Mint have retained this respect and admiration; they are true collector pieces treasured for their rarity, craftsmanship and generous weight. And featuring Pistrucci’s original design with garter border and inscription, this is a particularly important edition of both the Piedfort and The Sovereign.
