2018 UK Gold Half Sovereign ProofItem code: MMP398
In 2018, the modern gold sovereign turns 201 years old. This is an astounding number. However, perhaps more astonishing, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, has presided over the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth for almost ONE THIRD of that time!
In 2018, we celebrate the 65th Anniversary, the Sapphire Jubilee, of the Longest Reigning Monarch in British history. And what better way to celebrate than with Proof Gold Sovereigns?
Struck to the traditional size and specifications, each of the 2018 Gold Half Sovereign Proof coins return to the standard St George & Dragon design – with one major exception. The coin features a royal cypher crown mintmark with the numbers ‘65’ marking the celebration of the 65th anniversary of Her Majesty’s coronation. This mintmark does not and will not appear on any other sovereign date in the entire series ever!
Each housed in a timber case, the limited edition of the Half Sovereign has been set at 2,500 in this packaging.
