The year 1982 made its mark on history as an eventful year. The short but fierce Falklands War played out, and the Mary Rose was resurrected from its watery grave. Pope John Paul II visited the United Kingdom, His Royal Highness Prince William the Duke of Cambridge was born and technology marched on with the release of the first Compact Disc player.
This original Sovereign was struck in that lively year and it bears all the hallmarks that you would expect of such a majestic coin - struck to Proof standard in 22 carat gold, with Benedetto Pistrucci's world renowned St George and the dragon reverse design. More than 30 years old, this coin will evoke nostalgia as the obverse features the second circulating coinage portrait of The Queen by Arnold Machin, perfect to enhance any collection, or a great gift for someone with fond memories of 1982.
