1989 Queen Elizabeth II Tudor Rose Proof Gold Sovereign

By The Royal Mint

£1,150.00

Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.

During the reign of Elizabeth there have been just a handful of design changes on the gold proof sovereign from the famous Benedito Pistrucci St George and the Dragon reverse. In 1989 the Royal Mint struck a momentous design featuring for the first time EVER the Queen seated on the throne on the obverse, and the Tudor Rose on the the reverse. This was struck to celebrate the 500th  anniversary of the very first 'hammered' gold sovereign in 1489 during the reign of Henry VI. No one could have predicted just how popular this coin has proved to be! Just proof issues were struck making the demand much greater, and forcing the price to increase at a extremely rapid rate. We have just one coin available of this year, so don't delay and buy now before the opportunity passes!
