In this year, Margaret Thatcher celebrated a third term in office, becoming the longest reigning Prime Minister in the United Kingdom for over a century, and work on the greatly anticipated Channel Tunnel began. The year was also tinged with sadness as many lost their lives in the Zeebrugge disaster and the tragic King's Cross fire. What memories does 1987 hold for you?
Remember the moment with this original coin - The Sovereign - struck in its distinctive 22 carat gold, finished to Proof standard, with its illustrious St George and the dragon design on the reverse. The obverse of the coin is a real nod to the past as it bears the third coinage portrait of The Queen by Raphael Maklouf, introduced in 1985. This would make an authentic addition to any collection, or a great gift for someone with a connection to 1987.
