In 2022 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became the first British monarch to mark 70 years on the throne. In honour of her Platinum Jubilee, the 2022 Sovereign Collection features the heraldic symbols that form Her Majesty’s official coat of arms. This Gold Proof Five Coin Set contains the complete 2022 Sovereign Collection.
The royal arms are presented in full on the imposing 2022 Five Sovereign Coin, the largest coin in the collection. The four distinct quarters of the arms are then captured on the Double Sovereign, Sovereign, Half Sovereign and Quarter Sovereign. Individually they offer a beautifully detailed insight into specific chapters of The Queen’s family history; together they combine to tell the full heraldic story of the world’s longest reigning monarch as she marks her Platinum Jubilee.
In honour of this historic royal milestone, each coin is finished to the finest proof quality, every design detail crystal clear thanks to a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and the best of modern minting technology. The five gold proof coins are presented in a bespoke display case alongside a numbered certificate which guarantees the specification and authenticity of this exclusive collection. The 2022 Quarter Sovereign contains the shield that sits at the heart of the coat of arms and displays the emblems of the different nations of the United Kingdom.
