The 1999 United Kingdom Gold Proof Four-Coin Sovereign Collection
Set NameThe 1999 United Kingdom Gold Proof Four-Coin Sovereign Collection

This set contains four gold coins - five sovereigns, a full sovereign and a half sovereign, along with a two pound coin. In this instance, the £2 coin is the gold version of the commemorative Rugby World Cup two pounds and not a coin with the St George design. At this time, gold versions of the commemorative £2 coins were often called a double sovereign; later, the designation was reserved only for coins with design matching that of the full sovereign of the year.
