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 coins have been struck – The 2018 Sapphire Coronation Jubilee Gold Half and Full Sovereign. The new gold coins feature a triple-Proof quality finish along with a high-tech Holo-Proof security feature – and is the first sovereigns of their kind in the world.
Struck in solid 22 carat gold, the coins feature a passage from one of Her Majesty’s first official speeches.
This is such a rare limited edition that a Holo-Proof security feature has been introduced to prevent copying. Each coin features a different silhouette set behind the words ‘I solemnly promise so to do’. Tilt the coin on an angle and this portrait fades from view, like a holographic image. The half sovereign features a silhouette of the portrait of Her Majesty that appeared on the British 1977 Silver Jubilee coinage. The sovereign features a silhouette of the portrait that appeared on the British 1993 Ruby Jubilee coinage.
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!
Comes in a luxury presentation box with space to put your 2018 Sapphire Coronation Jubilee Gold Quarter Sovereign along side the half sovereign and sovereign.
