Surely one of the most exciting moments of 2018 was when His Royal Highness Prince Harry married his beautiful American bride, Meghan Markle, at Her Majesty the Queen’s favourite weekend residence, Windsor Castle. It was a truly global event, with millions watching all round the world, but all the more special for our two nations, Britain and the US.
A year on, and we are celebrating again – this time, the birth of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new baby, Archie, the ﬁrst US Royal in history! Archie is Queen Elizabeth II’s eighth great-grandchild and also seventh in line to the throne. Never before has there been an American heir to the British throne! In celebration of the birth of baby Archie a new gold quarter sovereign coin has been minted in Britain – The 2019 Birth of a New Royal Heir Gold Quarter Sovereign.
It depicts Harry and Meghan cradling baby Archie, and it is the ﬁrst time they have appeared on a gold sovereign coin.
Fewer than 1 in every 12,000 U.S. households can own this new gold sovereign coin
This new quarter sovereign coin celebrates the birth of the ﬁrst ever US Royal and heir to the British throne! Struck in solid 22 carat gold, the sovereign has been Britain’s premier coin since it was ﬁrst issued in 1817 in the reign of King George III. Although Britain no longer uses sovereign coins in everyday circulation, special commemorative issues are still struck to the same historic gold purity as they have always been, making this new gold sovereign part of that 200 year tradition.
Coin collectors and gold buyers around the world are in a state of excitement about this new coin: however, the mintage has been restricted to just 9,999 coins. This means that fewer than 1 in every 12,000 U.S. households can own one. Understandably, a strict limit of one coin per household applies.
Only one sovereign coin will ever be the ﬁrst to feature the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with their ﬁrst child – and right now you have the opportunity to acquire it! This is one of only 9,999 of these gold quarter sovereigns minted in Britain, and once these landmark coins are gone, there will be no more available.
