Own A True Modern Classic
Issued by the Royal Mint in 2017, this coin became so popular stocks sold out within days of release.
To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the ‘modern’ Sovereign, the 2017 Proof Gold Sovereign features a unique and 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 tastefully honours Pistrucci’s wishes, by featuring St George surrounded by a full garter border and inscription - as the great Italian engraver originally intended.
Just 10,500 have been struck and each coin contains 7.98g of 22 carat gold and is finished to Proof standard.
