Golden Jubilee Coins & Sets
The British Royal Mint will strike a number of special gold coins in 2002 to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee.
Shield Design Sovereigns & Half Sovereigns
It is now official that this year's - 2002 - half sovereigns and sovereigns will have a shield reverse.
Four Coin Gold Proof Sets
The 4 coin gold proof sets issued this year will all use the special shield design on their reverse side.
Three Coin Gold Proof Sets
The 3 coin gold proof sets issued this year will all use the special shield design on their reverse side.
Thirteen Coin Gold Proof Set
This year, for the first time ever, an all-gold 13 coin proof coin set will be issued, once again to celebrate the Queen's Golden Jubilee. It will contain all the normal circulation coins from the Two Pounds to the Penny, plus a Five Pounds Crown, and a complete Maundy Money set.
There are two precedents for this set, but both were struck in silver. In 1999 for the 25th anniversary of decimalisation, a set of seven silver proof coins, from the Pound to a Penny, were issued. The designs of these coins were normal ones used for the circulation coins, but made of silver and struck to a proof finish.
In 2000, a similar but larger 13 coin set, the Millennium SIlver Collection, was issued to mark the millennium.
We don't have a photograph of this set yet.
Golden Jubilee Crown
There is a special commemorative Five Pounds Crown issued this year for the Golden Jubilee. It has already been released in uncirculated specimen grade, but a silver proof and a gold proof version will be issued later, probably about April.
Golden Jubilee Crown - Version 2
We expect that there may well be a second crown announced and issued later in the year. At present, this is merely a guess on our part, but we seem to guess correctly about 90% of the time. Watch this space.
2002 Commonwealth Games Two Pound Coin Set
The Commonwealth Games, held in Manchester, were part of the official celebrations, and were bothe opened and closed by the Queen.
