Perhaps the most famous gold coin in the world, the Sovereign was first struck in its current format in 1817. And, in 2020 the specs remain the same, and one of the most beautiful coins in the world continues! With one very intriguing difference!
For 2021, the design has been updated with two small but extremely significant details. It features a one-year-only celebratory crown ‘privy mark’ to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th birthday. In keeping with that celebration, the coin’s milled edge features a symbolic 95 mills!
Struck from 22 carat gold - as is tradition - the 2020 sovereign is tinted rose, due to The Royal Mint's traditional gold alloy specification, setting it apart from many other modern gold coins.
Only 7,995 2020 Gold Sovereign Proofs will be issued in this packaging.
