Official 200th Anniversary Tribute

Struck to flawless Proof quality from 22-carat gold, this official legal tender Sovereign coin pays homage to the 200th anniversary of the record-breaking reign of King George III (1760-1820).

Sensational Spade Sovereign!

An inspired way to celebrate this key anniversary milestone, this sensational Sovereign Gold Proof recreates one of the most iconic coins of the reign of King George III. Celebrating two British icons in one coin, the 2020 Sovereign Gold Proof Coin carries a perfect recreation of the reverse design of the 1787-99 Spade Guinea.

The Spade Guinea – Australian icon

Issued for hundreds of years, in a variety of types, the Gold Guinea was Britain’s premier gold coin before the Sovereign was issued in 1817. Struck only from 1787 to 1799, the Spade Guinea was so named due to the distinctive shovel-like Shield of Arms found on the reverse. Readily accepted across the globe, and circulating in Australia in the earliest days after European Settlement, the Spade Guinea achieved lasting fame when it was included in the Proclamation of 1800 – recognised as Australia’s first official currency system.

Tiny limited edition

An official legal tender issue of St Helena, the limited edition of the King George III 2020 Sovereign Gold Proof has been restricted to a mere 1,820 coins. We have managed to secure a tiny allocation of coins – each housed in a case a numbered Certificate of Authenticity – but a sell-out is assured.
