2005 British Gold 4 Coin Proof Sets
Return of the Dragon
St. George & Dragon Reverse - New Version
In 2002, being Golden Jubilee year, the sovereign series all had a special shield design, in 2003 and 2004 they reverted to the traditional St. George and dragon design, but for 2005 we are told that there will be a single year design type, which will be a new interpretation of Saint George and the dragon.
For 2005 the issue limit is only 2,500 sets, which is quite low compared with many other recent sets.
In previous years the 3 coin and 4 coin sovereign collections have usually contained all coins of the same design, however in a number of years, the two pound coin included with the sets has been the commemorative version instead. For 2005, there will be a change. In 2005, all four of the sovereign family coins will contain the new St. George and Dragon version.
This information has not been officially confirmed yet, but we expect it to be announced nearer to the issue date.
