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 limited-edition Gold Proof Three Coin Set contains the 2022 Sovereign, Half Sovereign and Quarter Sovereign.
The 2022 Sovereign displays the crest at the top of the royal arms which features the St Edward’s Crown, worn by The Queen at her Coronation and now the centrepiece of the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London.
The 2022 Half Sovereign features the Unicorn of Scotland, believed to symbolise bravery, innocence and intelligence. Before the 1603 Act of Union the Scottish coat of arms featured two unicorns, but when James I became king of both Scotland and England, one unicorn was replaced by the English lion. 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.
Each coin is finished to finest proof quality, every design detail crystal clear thanks to a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and the best of modern minting technology. The three gold proof coins are presented in a bespoke display case alongside a numbered certificate which guarantees the specification and authenticity of this exclusive collection.
