A Brand New Design for the Diamond Jubilee Year

Own the 2012 UK Diamond Jubilee Gold Sovereign today - featuring a BRAND NEW one-year-only design for the Diamond Jubilee Year.

A Brand New Design for the Diamond Jubilee Year

The new design is a fresh interpretation of the classic St George and the Dragon story.  It has been engraved by renowned sculptor Paul Day, and it’s only the second time since 1817 that anyone other than Benedetto Pistrucci has re-worked this classic image. The brilliant uncirculated finish perfectly shows off this striking new design and it's bound to catch the eye.

Historic Interest in Royal Jubilee Coins

The last time the design for the gold sovereign changed for a Royal Jubilee, in 2002, the proof version sold out in two weeks. Likewise, Victorian ‘Jubilee Head’ sovereigns as they are known, issued in 1887, are some of the most widely sought after 19th century gold coins.

Demand has already been high for this year's coin - in fact the proof version has already sold out. This could be the last opportunity for you to own this design, as it will never be repeated.

Brilliant Uncirculated finish - A True Hallmark of Quality

But it's not just the 22 carat gold content that creates the demand for the United Kingdom Diamond Jubilee Gold Sovereign. The standard of craftsmanship behind each coin has become an international hallmark of quality. It is synonymous with our nation and its great history – a faithful link to the glory days of the British Empire.

The quality of your coin is the result of minting skills honed by the Royal Mint over its 1,000-year history. And to keep it pristine your Diamond Jubilee Gold Sovereign will be delivered in a smart Presentation Case, with a Certificate of Authenticity testifying to its 22 Carat Gold Content. A true classic in the making.
