Your Last Chance To Own A True Modern Classic
Issued by the Royal Mint and sold out within days of release. Now every coin dealer in the UK is out of stock.
However, Exclusive Coins has just released fifteen 2017 Five-Sovereign Pieces onto the market – and they are set to sell fast.
“There’s been a phenomenal amount of interest in these coins,” explains the Founder of Exclusive Coins. “Investors and coin collectors alike are desperate to get their hands on them. It’s not surprising – not only are they beautiful coins but are the only five pound sovereigns ever issued for single purchase and are not included in any set. I predict a couple of days – perhaps less – before we are completely sold out.”
To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the ‘modern’ Sovereign, the Five-Sovereign Piece features a special design. This pays homage to Benedetto Pistrucci’s original 1817 George and the Dragon design - revered to this day as a masterpiece and a classic example of the engraver’s art. The tools used to create the 2017 design were painstakingly remastered from the famous engraver’s originals, giving an astonishing mark of authenticity. The modern version also honours Pistrucci’s wishes, by featuring St George surrounded by a full garter border and inscription - as the great Italian engraver originally intended.
Just 1,000 have been struck and each coin contains almost 40g of 22 carat gold and is finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard. They are the largest coin in the Sovereign 2017 range and are five times the weight of the actual Sovereign.
Delivery is free and fully insured.
