Description

The 2020 King George III 200th Anniversary Gold Quarter Sovereign – the world’s first quarter sovereign produced from a mixture of antique and new 22 carat gold!

In 2020, Britain marks the 200th anniversary of the death of King George III, our longest reigning king. The first of the Hanoverians to be born in England, his legacy is often over-shadowed by the bouts of madness he suffered in his later years. However, the events and achievements of his reign – Trafalgar and Waterloo among them – stand as a testament to an era that saw Britain become the dominant power in Europe.

He is also the monarch that gave rise to the gold sovereign as we know it today. It was first struck during his lifetime in 1817, and would go on to become the dominant trade coin of the 19th century. In this way it is fitting that a new, milestone sovereign coin should be produced as a 200th commemoration of his reign.

World’s first heritage gold quarter sovereign – combines gold of his reign with modern gold!

The British gold sovereign was first minted in this monarch’s reign, from gold of the era, so it is significant that this new, 2020-dated celebration of his reign should also include gold that dates from the very same era.

Mixing 22 carat gold of King George III’s reign with modern 22 carat gold has created Heritage Mixture Gold. Each one of these new 2020 gold quarter sovereigns is produced from this Heritage Mixture Gold.

This is certain to create considerable demand – and not just from coin collectors, but also from those who want a world first quarter sovereign!

With a design inspired by one of his reign’s most significant gold coins

The design chosen for this new coin is also of great significance. It depicts one of the most important coins of his reign – the 1762 quarter guinea – which was only ever produced in that one year for this king. It is this direct historical link – between a one-off quarter guinea, and this new world first quarter sovereign – that will attract collector interest.  Now, this rare guinea coin of George III comes alive again, appearing on the world’s first quarter sovereign to contain authentic Georgian gold of this monarch’s reign.

Quarter sovereign is a world’s first – but fewer than 1 in every 6,000 UK households can own one

This is an exciting first opportunity for collectors to obtain the first ‘heritage mixture’ gold sovereigns for their collection – these could well become the most sought-after sovereign coins of all time. However, the mintage has been restricted to just 3,999 coins. This means that fewer than 1 in every 6,000 UK households can own one.  Authorised by Tristan da Cunha, 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.

The best part is that you may own this landmark gold coin for less than £100 – it may be yours at the introductory price of £99 (plus £4.99 postage and packing) – but only until 31st March 2020 after which the price will be £199, subject to availability. There is a limit of one coin per household at this introductory price.
