A special anniversary set pairs a modern Proof coin commemorating the introduction of the gold standard with a 1931 Sovereign struck during the year that Britain finally left the system 90 years ago. Charting the fascinating history of the gold standard and providing a direct link to the seismic events that saw its eventual demise, it affords the opportunity to own an historic edition of The Sovereign, the coin that once underpinned this global monetary system.
