Description

The 2019 Concorde 50th Anniversary Gold Prestige Sovereign Proof Set

When Concorde first took to the skies fifty years ago, the world watched in awe as a new age of supersonic travel roared into life. Capable of travelling at twice the speed of sound, nothing came near Concorde for sheer style and innovation, and the rich and famous clamoured for the chance to fly on the world’s fastest passenger jet. Her final flight in 2003 marked the sad end to a great era but despite this she is still an icon of one of the greatest achievements ever in aviation.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Concorde’s first flight, gold sovereign coins have been minted – and just like the world-first aircraft it celebrates, this is the first set of sovereigns coins ever to be reverse-frosted.  Plus when the three coins in this set are aligned in the correct position, they form the complete side image of Concorde, its distinctive sharp nose cone raised as its powerful rear engines thrust to bring it safely into land.

These coins are all major ‘firsts’ – they are the first sovereign coins ever to be reverse-frosted, resulting in a design of exceptional contrast.

This set includes the quarter sovereign, half sovereign and full sovereign, each struck in the highest possible Proof quality. All have low mintages – the quarter sovereign is limited to 2,999, the sovereign to 2,019 coins – but it’s the half sovereign that really catches the eye at just 1,969.  The impact of that lower mintage is that 35% of the people who own the quarter sovereign will not be able to own the half sovereign! This will have a great bearing on the market for this coin.

Authorised by Gibraltar and minted in Britain, the 2019 Concorde 50th Anniversary Gold Prestige Sovereign Proof Set is a superb celebration of Concorde.

Considerable demand is expected for these world-first coins celebrating the world’s first Concorde flight so don’t miss out and order now!
