2002 British Gold 4 Coin Proof Sets

Gold Sovereign Series - New Designs for the Golden Jubilee

It is now official that the sovereign series of gold coins will have a shield design for the Golden Jubilee year 2002. This special design will only be used for the single year. The last time this occurred was in 1989, and this is only the second time in over a century.
The 4 coin gold proof sovereign sets contain a £5, £2, sovereign, and half sovereign, and usually a Royal Mint medallion. They are housed in luxurious leather cases, with each coin secure within its own plastic capsule.

Shield Reverse

The shield reverse was last used for Queen Victoria from 1838 to 1887 inclusive. This was Victoria's golden jubilee year, and the design of the sovereigns was changed in that year. In fact for the date 1887. It is perhaps fitting, then, that the Royal Mint appear to have chosen not only to change the sovereign design for our own Queen's golden jubilee, but also to revert back to the shield design, although of course the 2002 shield will be different from the Victorian shield design.

Issue Limits

For 2001, the issue limit was only 1,000. The issue limits for 2002 have been increased considerably to 2,500 because of the Golden Jubilee celebrations.
