The 2019 Concorde 50th Anniversary Gold Half and Full Sovereign Set
When Concorde first took to the skies fifty years ago, the world watched in awe as a new age of supersonic travel roared into life. Capable of travelling at twice the speed of sound, nothing came near Concorde for sheer style and innovation, and the rich and famous clamoured for the chance to fly on the world’s fastest passenger jet. Her final flight in 2003 marked the sad end to a great era but despite this she is still an icon of one of the greatest achievements ever in aviation.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Concorde’s first flight gold sovereign coins have been minted – and just like the world-first aircraft it celebrates, this is the first set of sovereigns coins ever to be reverse-frosted.
Struck in solid 22 carat gold, the coins feature Concorde’s mid section (half sovereign) and the powerful engines and distinctive tail section of Concorde (sovereign) – these features have been struck in relief and given a reflective finish that shine out against the coin’s frosted background. A special ‘Concorde 50’ logo denotes the 50th anniversary. Authorised by Gibraltar and minted in Britain, the 2019 Concorde 50th Anniversary Gold Half and Full Sovereign Set is a superb celebration of Concorde.
Considerable demand is expected for these world-first coins celebrating the world’s first Concorde flight so don’t miss out and order now!
Comes in a luxury presentation box with space to put your 2019 Concorde 50th Anniversary gold quarter sovereign along side the half sovereign and sovereign.
