The Sovereign is known across the world as a symbol of quality and accuracy, a fine example of the craftsmanship perfected by The Royal Mint over 1,100 years. The gold coin is equally famous for the St George and the dragon design, which features on the coin’s reverse and has endured for more than 200 years. For 2018, The Sovereign features another mark of excellence as it bears a celebratory mint mark to commemorate the 65th anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen’s coronation.
Royal Mint coin designers, Natasha Preece and Joseph Melia, have created a royal cypher crown with the number ‘65’ to celebrate The Sovereign’s royal connections and this historic event. This edition is the smallest coin in The Sovereign 2018 Collection every detail of the design has been captured in miniature form and perfectly defined by The Royal Mint’s Proof finish on this 22 carat gold coin.
