By The Royal Mint

Queen Elizabeth II (1952-present day)  - The set contains the double sovereign (two-pound), sovereign and half sovereign all struck in 22ct gold to the highest possible standard. The two pound features the elaborate reverse design by Bruce Rushin, comprising of four concentric circles emanating from the heart of the coin. It celebrates the development of technology from the Iron Age to today's age of cyberspace. To achieve the bi-colour effect a small amount of silver is added to the copper alloy while the gold content remains unchanged. Thus the inner section becomes the 'yellow' gold of the coins, and the outer remains the familiar 'red' gold of modern sovereigns.
