2009 British Gold 3 Coin Proof Sets

Gold Sovereign Series

Each year since 1980, the Royal Mint have produced sets of 3 and 4 coins in the gold sovereign series. The 3 coin sets consist of a sovereign, half sovereign and double sovereign or two pound piece.

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.

Design News

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 2009, there is a change. The three coin sets contain the definitive St. George and dragon design.
