This set of heritage-themed Sovereigns is issued in commemoration of the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria, the most important Monarch in The East India Company’s vast history. Each Sovereign has been struck to the highest proof quality, faithfully designed and engraved to capture the true beauty of five Queen Victoria’s, and the world’s, most exceptional original coin designs.

Included in this five-coin Sovereign denominated gold series are some of the most renowned reverse designs that appeared on Victoria’s coinage and which have been especially recreated for this occasion.

Of particular importance is the new five pound gold piece which recreates the famous Una and the Lion design. The reverse side of the new double-sovereign includes a great favourite widely sought after, the Gothic Crown. First issued in 1847 to mark the 10th anniversary of Victoria’s accession, it included four crowned shields representing the primary realms of Great Britain with a defining Gothic style. The Sovereign coin is outstanding as it includes the shield reverse seen on Victoria’s last silver half-crown coins. The half Sovereign is especially relevant as it includes Benedetto Pistrucci’s iconic interpretation of St George slaying the dragon, first included on half sovereign coins during Queen Victoria’s reign. For the quarter sovereign, a classic rendition of Britannia is included, first seen on Queen Victoria’s copper pennies, half pennies and farthings from 1860.
