2018 marked Her Majesty’s Sapphire Jubilee (65th anniversary) of Coronation, the first time in history a British monarch has celebrated this milestone, the likes of which will probably never be seen again. As part of the Jubilee celebrations an exceptional new sovereign coin has been struck – The 2018 Sapphire Coronation Jubilee Gold Sovereign. The new gold coin features a triple-Proof quality finish along with a high-tech Holo-Proof security feature – and it is the first sovereign of its kind in the world.
Struck in solid 22 carat gold, the coin features a passage from one of Her Majesty’s first official speeches. Only 2,018 have been minted – which is an incredibly small quantity!
This is such a rare limited edition that a Holo-Proof security feature has been introduced to prevent copying. Set behind the words in the design is a cameo portrait of Queen Elizabeth II inspired by the cameo that appeared on the British 1993 Ruby Jubilee coinage : tilt the coin on an angle and this portrait fades from view, like a holographic image. Authorised by Gibraltar, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham Palace, it is a wonderful celebration – and a world first one at that – of one of our greatest monarchs.
Many of the people buying these coins will want them as a memento of this great royal event. Those coins will be put away at the back of cupboards or tucked away in sock drawers never to see the light of day again – which in turn will make acquiring these coins on the secondary market very difficult indeed. Don’t take that risk and order today!
