King Charles and the Dragon Prestige Set

Gold sovereign coins have been associated with the legend of St George and the dragon for more than 200 years, and this medieval tale of chivalry continues to capture the imagination today.

The Double Sovereign 200th Anniversary Gold Sovereign Range

 

2023 marks the 200th anniversary of the gold double sovereign, the third coin in the ‘family’ of sovereign coins that was Britain’s, and the world’s, Gold Standard in the 19th and early 20th centuries. First struck in 1823, the double sovereign featured the Classical Depiction of St George and the dragon created by a master of coin design, Benedetto Pistrucci. His design has become known the world over, and is today synonymous with the gold sovereign itself.

For the 200th anniversary of the double sovereign a special series of celebration sovereigns is being minted. To tie in with the original of 1823, the design is that same tale of St George – but in a new 2023 re-imagining of it by a modern day master of design, Jody Clark.

The Prince and Princess of Wales Gold Sovereign Range

Along with the accession of Charles as our new king last year, his son, William, became the new Prince of Wales. With characteristic sensitivity, he accepted the role without a formal investiture ceremony, mindful of the fact that for many in Wales the title remains contentious. He has spoken of it as a great honour, pledging to serve Wales with humility and great respect for its people.

In our modern era, the title ‘Prince of Wales’ is no longer a title of authority but one of ceremony, and although there was no formal investiture event, the fact that William is now the 23rd Prince of Wales deserves to be recognised. His wife Catherine, or ‘Kate’ as she is often known, is now the Princess of Wales, the first to use that title since William’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

To celebrate the new Prince & Princess of Wales, for the first time in over 200 years of gold sovereign history, coins have been minted from 22 carat gold that includes a trace amount of rare Welsh gold in the mixture. Gold sourced from the mines in Wales is highly prized, and very rare, and it has a long and proud association with the Royal Family.
