The Sovereign 2001

On 20 January 2001, George W. Bush was sworn in as the 43rd President of the United States, Apple launched the iPod and Dennis Tito became the world's first space tourist. On the other side of the Atlantic, Tony Blair’s Labour government won a second term in office. Reflect on a historic year and capture those memories for posterity with an original gold Sovereign, year-dated 2001. This beautiful coin features Pistrucci's St George and the Dragon design on its reverse, a timeless classic unsurpassed since its introduction in 1817, while the fourth definitive portrait of Her Majesty The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS is on the obverse.
