Since its inception in 1489 at the behest of Henry VII, The Sovereign has endured throughout the ages as a symbol of monarchical strength. Known for its beauty, accuracy and reliability, collectors across the world are fond of the coin, which has earned it the fitting moniker of `chief coin of the world.'
In 2022, The Royal Mint has struck a Sovereign that honours a remarkable moment in British history: Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Since her coronation in 1953, The Queen has carried out her royal duties with unwavering grace and dedication, honouring the promise she made in a televised speech where she pledged her 'heart' and 'devotion' to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
This year's coin also marks a significant moment in numismatic history, as Benedetto Pistrucci's iconic depiction of St George and the dragon makes way for a reverse design by the esteemed heraldic artist Timothy Noad, specially created to mark The Queen's Platinum Jubilee. The artist's design reinterprets the Royal Coat of Arms in what is his third reverse design for The Sovereign, which is an almost unparalleled achievement for the 'chief coin of the world.' In honour of Her Majesty's historic achievement, The Royal Mint welcomes the Piedfort Sovereign, which makes its return after a two-year break, to The Sovereign 2022 Collection.
