BRAND NEW 'Offset' Portrait DESIGN.
On offer is a piece of Gold history. This is your chance to acquire the year 2016 Gold Proof Sovereign.
Encapsulated to keep it’s proof lustre, but housed in a earlier edition walnut case. The 2016 Proof Sovereign has the 'Offset' James Butler portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the Obverse which was ONLY used on the gold coins for this year, and the classic St George and Dragon design on the Reverse.
The 2016 Gold Proof Sovereign was obtained from a Sovereign set that one of the mail order companies had put together for sale, so also has no Certificate of Authenticity. It is however garanteed every bit the genuine article as originally minted by the Royal Mint.
We have also managed to house the coin in an earlier edition Royal Mint walnut case, to add to it's appeal.
