The Unique Mark of the 2018 Gold Sovereign

For 2018 only, the Sovereign coin celebrates a very important anniversary

The Sovereign is The Royal Mint's flagship coin. It's famous around the world as a masterpiece of quality and design.

All coins tell a story and the 2018 Sovereign is no different. 2018 marks another historic event with British Royalty: the Queen celebrates the 65th anniversary of her coronation. This makes her the world's longest reigning monarch - a remarkable event few of us will witness again.

A Very Special Edition

The Sovereign Proof Collection includes 3 editions and 4 exclusive sets. Each coin is struck in 22 carat gold, finished to Proof standard, and features a mint mark depicting a royal crown with ‘65’ entwined in the design, as well as the famous Pistrucci design. The obverse features the Queen's effigy, designed by famed Royal Mint designer Jody Clark. The celebratory mint mark that features on all coins in The Sovereign 2018 Collection was created by Natasha Preece and Joseph Melia, who are both members of The Royal Mint’s coin design team.
