The World's First 12-Sided Gold Sovereign!
2017 is big year for one of the most famous coins in the world -- the Gold Sovereign! Tracing its lineage all the way back to an October 28, 1489 order of King Henry VII, the Sovereign was minted as a show of regal strength and assertion of England as a preeminent European power. Revived in 1817 under the reign of King George III, the "modern" Gold Sovereign continues to be a favorite of collectors and goldbugs the world over. Now, to ring in the 200th anniversary of this coin classic, the Commonwealth Mint has created the very first 12-sided Gold Sovereign Proof!
- 12 SIDES, TWO BIG EVENTS, ONE GLOBAL FIRST -- 2017 also heralds the premier of the new 12-sided British one-pound coin. Since this debut is happening in the same year as the Gold Sovereign's 200th anniversary, this world's first 12-sided Gold Sovereign Proof celebrates both the past and the future in one spectacular coin!
- A GORGEOUS PROOF FINISH -- Each coin begins as a hand-selected quarter-ounce planchet of 91.7% pure gold. Then, using polished dies and multiple strikes, each Gold Sovereign is expertly minted to showcase beautiful mirrored fields and sharp, frosted details.
- LEGAL TENDER WITH A REGAL DESIGN -- Each Gold Sovereign Proof is legal tender for the island country of Tristan da Cuhna, reflected on the obverse along with the profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Flip this Sovereign over to discover the inscription of "VIVAT REGINA" ("Long Live the Queen") along with the denomination -- all surrounding the shield of the United Kingdom in the center, wreathed by the English rose, Welsh leek, Scottish thistle and Northern Irish shamrock.
- PRESENTED IN ORIGINAL MINT PACKAGING -- Your 2017 1/4-oz Gold 12-Sided Sovereign Proof will arrive to you in its original mint packaging, secured in a presentation case along with a certificate of authenticity.
- A LIMITED MINTAGE DEBUT -- In honor of the premier year of this beloved coin series, the production of this 12-sided Gold Sovereign is limited to only 1,817 proofs!
With an anniversary as momentous as this, you can bet that collectors are looking for special celebrations of this numismatic bicentennial -- and there's no doubt that this quarter-ounce stunner fits the bill! Add that uniqueness of the occasion with this coin's limited mintage and you can see why we think this proof will have a very short stay in our vault. Join the celebration -- secure your own 2017 1/4-oz Gold 12-Sided Sovereign Proof now!
