Description

World’s first gold one-eighth sovereign coin ever to be minted with platinum gold

Many events are labelled ‘historic’. Some happen once a decade, others maybe once a lifetime, others only once a century. We are about to witness an event that has never happened before, in the entirety of British history. In 2022, Queen Elizabeth II becomes the first British monarch ever to reach a Platinum Jubilee.

A Platinum Jubilee is a reign of 70 years, and what a reign it has been. Not only is Her Majesty the first to reach this milestone, making her our longest-reigning monarch, but she is also our oldest reigning monarch. She has reigned through the Jet Age, the Space Age, the Computer Age, and now into the Internet Age, and through all that time she has managed her role as monarch and mother with style, grace, and compassion.

We are about to be part of one of the biggest events in British history, an event that will not be repeated for at least a century, and quite possibly ever.

To commemorate an event of this magnitude, it requires a gold sovereign coin that will also ‘stand the test of time’. Even putting to one side the significance of the event they celebrate; this is  amongst the most highly significant one-eighth sovereign coins ever released. It will stand apart in the same way Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee does.

The most significant feature of this coin is that it is the world’s first one-eighth sovereign coin ever to be minted with ‘platinum-gold’; used in recognition of the Platinum Jubilee. It has been created by enriching solid 22-carat gold with two carats worth of platinum. This is the richest, most valuable gold alloy ever to be used in the production of sovereign coins!

Exceptional Platinum-Gold for a Platinum Jubilee Monarch

As a tribute to Her Majesty’s 70 years of service, this new one eighth sovereign coin is produced from an exceptional blend of platinum and gold.

Traditionally, British sovereigns are minted at 22-carat gold purity – which is 91.67% pure. The remaining 8.33% is another metal, often Copper, which is added to the gold to give the coins strength. On a rare occasion for Queen Victoria’s Jubilee in 1887, silver was used.

However, to create a coin that is incredibly special, this one-eighth sovereign for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee has been created with pure platinum as the metal that is added to the gold! Solid 22 carat gold is being enriched with two carats worth of platinum, which means each and every coin is made of 91.67% gold, plus 8.33% platinum – the richest, most valuable gold alloy that sovereigns have ever been minted from!

In the same way that this is the first Platinum Jubilee in history, so too is this the first platinum-gold one eighth sovereign coins in history

In addition to this world’s first use of platinum-gold, this one-eighth sovereign features the royal cypher of Elizabeth II with a celebratory garland of roses, thistles, leeks, and shamrocks to represent the nations of the United Kingdom.

What this means is that availability of this coin will end on 30th April 2022. At that time, any coins that are unsold will be melted down and verified to that effect.

At that point, we will issue to owners of this coin a new certificate stating the final mintage which may be lower, or possibly considerably lower, than 5,999. If the mintage remains at 5,999 then this means the coins sold out entirely to keen customers, and if not you may have secured for yourself a low mintage rarity.
