2001 British Gold 3 Coin Proof Sets
The 2001 gold set is a set with a difference. It includes the £2 coin commemorating the centenary of the transmission of the first transatlantic telegraph by Guglielmo Marconi in 1901, instead of the more usual St. George and Dragon design. The gold sets of 1986 had also contained the Commonwealth Games design of £2, but the 1989 sets used their own exclusive Sovereign 500th Anniversary rather than the two different English and Scottish versions to commemorate the tercentenary of the Bill of Rights and the Claim of Right.
The Three Coins
The three gold coins we refer to are, of course, the gold sovereign and half sovereign, along with the two pound coin, often called a double sovereign.
Two Pounds||28.40||15.98||Marconi - Telegraph
Sovereign (Pound)||22.05||7.98||St. George & Dragon
