The Buckingham Collection are proud to offer the United Kingdoms Chief Gold Coin the 2019 Gold Sovereign.
Gold Sovereigns are one of the most investable and recognisable gold coins in the world and are a great way to mark the incredible milestone of the Queen reaching 93 years of age!
Struck on the year marking 200 years since Queen Victoria’s birth, the coin bears the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, aged 88 at the time of commission. In keeping with tradition, the obverse of the coin portrays St George on a horse slaying a dragon, and then the Queen appears on the reverse. It was designed by Jody Clark of the Royal Mint, The first time one of their own staff had sculpted the portrait.
It features the Queen in the King George IV State Diadem (worn during the annual State Opening of Parliament) and Diamond Jubilee pearl-drop earring.
