The Sovereign 2008

25 January 2008 was a poignant day in the South Wales Valleys as Tower Colliery, the last deep mine in the area, officially closed. In London, Boris Johnson was elected Mayor, while sporting triumphs dominated the headlines throughout the year. The British Olympic team enjoyed their best performance in a century in Beijing, and Lewis Hamilton became the youngest ever Formula One World Champion. Journey back to a memorable year and capture those special memories for posterity with this magnificent gold Sovereign, our most revered and sought-after coin.
