2010 British Gold 5 Coin Proof Sets
As we expected there was an important change to the 4 coin gold set last year - it contains 5 coins!
With the addition of the new quarter sovereign the 'old' four coin gold sets have now become five coin sets.

Design News
As in some previous years the 3 coin and 4/ 5 coin sovereign collections contain all coins of the same design, however in some years the two pound coin included with the sets has been the commemorative version instead. We do not know whether the 2010 coins will all be the same design or not.

St. George and Dragon - Recut Reverse Dies - More Changes
The traditional St George & Dragon design has been used on sovereigns, with a few breaks, since 1817.
The reverse dies for sovereigns, half sovereigns, double sovereigns and quintuple sovereigns were remastered and recut in 2007. See our 2007 sovereigns page of our Gold Sovereigns website for more information.
For 2009, the reverse dies reverted to dies produced from masters in the Royal Mint Museum, and possibly worked on by Benedetto Pistrucci himself.

The New Old Thing
It's not often that something so new is so old. We believe the reversion to original, or near original masters provides better definition, and therefore more attractive coins. For more information please see our 2009 Gold Sovereign 5 Coin Sets page.

2010 Prices
We gave up trying to forecast the official Royal Mint issue price this year, due to sharp gold bullion prices rises, we now know this to be higher than previously.
