We received our first delivery of the proof version on the 2nd November 2011, just one day after they were released.
We received our first delivery of 2012 gold sovereigns on the 1st December 2011.
Buying from us you also get the benefit of buying from expert professional numismatists who have been in the business for over 40 years. While we appreciate the Royal Mint have existed for longer, we know more about sovereigns and half sovereigns than they do!
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.
Sovereign Issue Limits
Originally we were notified that there is no issue limit on the 2012 uncirculated sovereign, however we now know that the Royal Mint are stating an issue limit of 750,000.
The issue limit for the 2012 proof sovereign is 5,500, excluding those included in sets.
Sovereign Stock Update - Nov 2012
We have both the uncirculated and proof sovereigns in stock now for immediate delivery, at prices below the original Royal Mint issue price.
