Quality coins featuring Queen Victoria are rare enough – but the limited release of a collection featuring three such coins presents an unmissable opportunity.
Exclusive Coins is currently offering a set of three gold sovereigns from Queen Victoria’s reign – each one individually displayed in its own plush matt finished presentation case.
Each Tax-free, 22-carat gold coin features a different portrait of Queen Victoria:
• ‘Young Head’ Portrait
– This flattering neoclassical portrait of Victoria as a young woman, by renowned engraver William Wyon, adorned British coin between 1838 and 1887.
• ‘Jubilee Head’ Portrait
– First introduced to mark the Golden Jubilee, this design by Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm depicted an older Victoria wearing a small crown.
• ‘Old Head’ Portrait
– Also known as the ‘veiled head’ portrait, this engraving featured on coinage from 1893 until Victoria’s death in 1901. It shows what is perhaps the best-remembered image of Victoria – the old Queen with a veil over her face.
The reverse of each coin features the classic Saint George and the Dragon design by the Italian engraver Benedetto Pistrucci.
Dating from 1817, it is still revered throughout the world as a masterpiece.
Each coin features the famous quality of the Royal Mint, renowned by collectors, investors and auctioneers the world over.
