We received our first delivery on the 2nd November 2011.
2012 Diamond Jubilee Design
2012 is the year of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and to commemorate this special occasion a new St. George and the Dragon reverse has been comissioned.
The new reverse by Paul Day features a new interpretation of St. George and the Dragon - so, similarly to the 2005 design people are bound to either love it or hate it.
Personally we like it, although we would perhaps have expected a new portrait on the obverse.
Previous one-off designs include the 1989 500th Anniversary Sovereign, the 2002 Shield Reverse Sovereign issued to celebrate the Queens Golden Jubilee and the 2005 Sovereigns featuring a re-worked and stylised version of the traditional St George & Dragon design.
The issue limit of the five coin gold proof set is just 999.
