BRAND NEW GEORGE & DRAGON DESIGN FOR THE 200th Anniversary of the Original Pistrucci Design
On offer is a piece of Gold history. This is your chance to acquire the year 2017 Gold Proof Sovereign.
Encapsulated to keep it’s proof lustre, but housed in a earlier edition walnut case. The 2017 Proof Sovereign has the FIFTH portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the Obverse and the BRAND NEW St George and Dragon design on the Reverse especially commissioned for the 200th Anniversary of the original design by Benedetto Pistrucci used on the first 'modern' sovereign in 1817.
The 2017 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.
The Royal Mint was SOLD OUT very quickly after Issue.
