More than 500 years ago, Henry VII demanded a coin that would be the largest in England, adorned with a portrait of himself in full regalia. That gold coin was named The Sovereign and although it later fell into disuse, it was revived during the reign of George III and remains closely associated with royalty today. though It has been struck for every British monarch of the last two hundred years, including Her Majesty The Queen.

In 2021, the coins of The Sovereign family mark Her Majesty’s 95th birthday with a unique ‘95’ privy mark, while The Sovereign itself has a milled edge featuring 95 mills in her honour. The crown privy mark has been struck on all five coins in this prestigious set, including The Double-Sovereign and Five-Sovereign Piece, which have long been regarded as collector pieces. The Double-Sovereign is exactly twice the weight of the single Sovereign, while The Five-Sovereign Piece contains almost 40 grammes of 22 carat gold. The Sovereign 2021 Five-Coin Set contains every coin in The Sovereign family, from The Quarter-Sovereign to The Five-Sovereign Piece, with the latter only available with our finest Proof finish as part of this set.
