2012 British Gold 3 Coin Proof Sets

Featuring a new interpretation of St George and the Dragon to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Gold Sovereign Series

Each year since 1980, the Royal Mint have produced sets of 3 and 4 coins in the gold sovereign series, last year the four coin set became a five coin set with the introduction of the quarter sovereign. The 3 coin set usually consists of a sovereign, half sovereign and double sovereign or two pound piece, this is now called a Premium Three Coin Set. The 'standard' three coin set now contains a sovereign, a half sovereign and the quarter sovereign.

Design News

The three coins of the 2012 gold Proof Sovereign Collection each bears the beautifully composed rendition of St George and the dragon by Paul Day. Each coin features The Queen's portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. This strong and faithful likeness of The Queen has been used on coinage of the UK from 1998.

We have always thought the three coin set to be too expensive to make them a worthwhile purchase. Many people obviously agree as it is one of the few products that many UK dealers do not stock. This may also be something to do with the Royal Mint price breaks! In order to qualify for a reasonable discount you have to buy quite substantial quantities.

We tend to purchase 50 of the 4/5 coin sets and have no trouble selling them but even if we buy 10 of the three coin sets we still have them in stock years later. For this reason we will not be purchasing either the standard or premium three coin sets direct from the Mint this year.

In Stock

We bought in our first 3 coin set - the premium version - in the middle of February, 2014. With a Limited Edition Presentation of just 340, we don't think we will have it in stock very long.

Wanted

We play an active part in the secondary market for many gold and silver products, including three coin sovereign sets so we would be more than happy to purchase a 2012 (or any other date) three coin set from you.
This obviously means that we may at some point have one for sale, so if you would like to telephone us and place an order we would hope to fulfil it with time.
