2008 British Gold 4 Coin Proof Sets

Return of the Dragon

In 2009, St. George and the dragon returned to the 4 coin gold sovereign sets on all four coins, after the special one-off St. George reverse design in 2005.

Design News

As in some previous years the 3 coin and 4 coin sovereign collections contain all coins of the same design, however in a number of years, in some years the two pound coin included with the sets has been the commemorative version instead. For 2009, all four coins will the St. George and Dragon version.

St. George and Dragon - Recut Reverse Dies

The traditional St George & Dragon design has been used on sovereigns, with a few breaks, since 1817. During this long period, there have been a considerable number of minor changes to the dies used for the reverse (tail side). This year, the reverse design appears to have been completely re-engraved, although there was no advance announcement of this from the Royal Mint. Please see our Gold Sovereigns website for a full explanation.
