Description

The Twelve-Sided Gold Half and Full Sovereign Set

2017 marked the 200th anniversary of the British gold sovereign, the most important gold coin the world has ever seen. As part of the anniversary celebrations, an exceptional new sovereign coin set was struck. The 2017 Twelve-Sided Gold Half and Full Sovereign Set – struck in the same shape as the new British circulating pound coin –  is the first of its kind in the world and exclusive to Hattons of London.

Struck in solid 22 carat gold, the coins feature a cameo portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with the Latin inscription DIU VIVERE MONARCHIA (“long live the monarchy”).

These coins combine two very important attributes. Firstly, they are minted from solid 22 carat gold, the historic purity of all gold sovereign coins dating back 200 years to the first issue of 1817. This means that it’s a great way to own your share of one of the world’s most precious resources. However, this set also has value as a collector’s edition as it is the first twelve-sided gold sovereign set to be issued in the world. This means that, as well as the value of the gold within the coins, it will always be sought after as the first of its kind. It is this important combination of precious metal and collector values that makes the first ever twelve-sided gold sovereigns such an attractive acquisition.

The Sovereign is a major national icon – one of the chief coins of the world in the Late 19th century and still minted even today. Its history is probably the most fascinating of all the world’s coinage and it is rightly regarded as the most impressive gold coin anywhere in the world. It is of such significance within Britain that it can be bought without paying any VAT. This is a coin set that sits beyond the reach of the Chancellor of the Exchequer!

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.

Comes in a luxury presentation box with space to put your 2017 Twelve-Sided Gold Quarter Sovereign along side the half sovereign and sovereign.
