World’s First New Zealand Gold Sovereigns

First struck more than 200 years ago, the British Gold Sovereign is one of the most widely recognized coins in the world. In its long and celebrated history, the Sovereign has been struck in Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, India and Canada. Now, in 2019 on the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth, the world’s first-ever New Zealand Gold Sovereigns are being issued!

In this offer you can get the legal-tender $10 Gold Five Sovereign struck in 40 grams of highly pure 91.67% fine gold. It also comes in gorgeous Proof condition, meaning it was expertly crafted from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. In fact. The coin is so pristine that the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) has graded it as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proof will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has further certified that this coin was “One of the First 20 Struck.”

The design for these first-ever New Zealand Gold Sovereigns was created by celebrated artist Natanya van Niekerk, the creative genius who won numerous international coin awards for her work on the South African Mint’s acclaimed Natura series. The design pays homage to a commemorative medal issued during the early part of Victoria’s reign and shows an effigy of Queen Victoria from her younger years, wearing a tiara. The effigy is framed with a spiral-shaped koru design representing the royal generations past, present and future. A lattice stained-glass effect has also been incorporated into the design to symbolize the vast array of territories that Queen Victoria reigned over when the British Empire was at the height of its power.
