In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen made history when she became the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. Since 1952, the world had watched her grow from a young queen leading post-war Britain into an admired leader and great-grandmother. As the longest living reigning monarch in the world, The Queen had been a source of comfort and stability throughout the years.
To celebrate this unprecedented milestone moment, The Royal Mint struck a new range of its prestigious Sovereign bullion coins featuring a new design by the renowned numismatic artist Timothy Noad. Known as the ‘chief coin of the world’, The Sovereign is struck in 22 carat gold and guaranteed to five decimal places, making it the most tightly specified coin in the world. Each coin has been through a rigorous process to make sure they reach The Royal Mint’s strict bullion standard, so that investors can collect with confidence.
