The Sovereign

The Mark of Distinction.


The Sovereign: Witness to History

2018 is a historic year in the story of the British monarchy, as Her Majesty The Queen – now the world’s longest reigning monarch – marks the 65th anniversary of her coronation.  This remarkable event is unlikely to happen again for many generations.  To celebrate, The Royal Mint has incorporated a unique mint mark on The Sovereign, the coin of the monarch, which will appear for one year only.  Queen Elizabeth II is the first British monarch to mark more than 65 years of service, making the addition of this particular mint mark to celebrate this achievement a minting first.
