Own a piece of history struck on June 2, 2012 - the very day of the Jubilee.
On Saturday 2 June 2012, Gavin Elliott, our Commemorative Coin Head of Production supervised the individual striking of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Brilliant Uncirculated Sovereigns. The entire limited edition of Celebration Sovereigns was minted in just one day. We invite you to share the excitement by owning one of only 2,012 Brilliant Uncirculated Sovereigns which were minted on the first day of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The famous British Gold Sovereign is one of the world’s most popular coins. Sovereigns have a long and illustrious history, dating back to the Tudor King Henry VII. Since 1817, Sovereigns have generally featured a relief of George and the dragon designed by Benedetto Pistrucci, one of the most enduring and best-loved of all numismatic designs.

This Sovereign features a new George and the dragon design, which will only be used in 2012 as a mark of the immense historical importance of the Diamond Jubilee Year. The 22 carat gold coin comes in a handsome wood-veneer presentation box, complete with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, hand signed by Gavin Elliot to confirm the date of striking.
