Description

This will be an historic year in British royal history. Not only do we celebrate our own Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in honour of her 70 years, but we also mark the 125th Anniversary of the Diamond Jubilee of her great great grandmother, Queen Victoria! The reigns of these two great monarchs are often compared, and for good reason: they are our longest reigning monarchs, and the impact of both women on British society, has been profound. Victoria presided over huge industrial change and expansion of the empire; Elizabeth’s reign has taken us into a whole new era of technological supremacy.

Now, in 2022, major commemorations for Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee and Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, overlap!

To celebrate this, a new series of sovereign coins has been produced to commemorate the 60-year jubilee of Queen Victoria’s reign. These are the first sovereign coins ever to be diamond-shaped, in tribute to Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. What makes these of further interest is that some of the coin denominations were never minted for Queen Victoria meaning these are the first coins of their kind ever to feature her portrait!

For Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, the first sovereign coins that are diamond-shaped!

Coins are rarely struck in any shape other than circular, but Queen Victoria is a monarch of such importance in British royal history that something truly special has been authorised to mark this anniversary of her Diamond Jubilee. These new coins are diamond-shaped, creating a series of sovereigns that stand apart from all others, a unique tribute to one of Britain’s most remarkable monarchs.

It’s worth remembering that no other reigning British monarch, other than our own Queen, has reached a Diamond Jubilee. Victoria was just 18 years old when she came to the throne, and 81 years of age when she died, reigning for almost 64 years

Queen Victoria’s portraits as they’ve never been seen on gold sovereigns before

These new coins are significant for reasons other than their unique shape. Royal portrait enthusiasts will be excited to learn that each coin features a new adaptation of one of Queen Victoria’s original coinage portraits. These nineteenth century portraits of Victoria look superb with the improvements brought by twenty-first century technology in die-engraving.

However, it’s not just the quality and beauty of the portraits that makes these coins so compelling. Many of the portraits are appearing on coins that they have never been seen on before. Take for example, the half sovereign in this series features Queen Victoria’s ‘Bun Head’ portrait, which during her reign was used only on bronze coins (from 1860-1895). The quarter sovereign too, features the ‘Jubilee Head’ portrait, introduced for Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in 1887 and used until 1893. This portrait appeared on the half sovereign, sovereign, double sovereign and five pounds during her reign, but there was no quarter sovereign. In fact, this portrait has never before appeared on a quarter sovereign making this coin the first of its kind.

Benefit from the SELL OUT GUARANTEE

Sell Out Guarantee

The 2022 Queen Victoria 125th Diamond Jubilee Anniversary Fractional Infill Sovereign Set will not exceed 1,897 sets and is also subject to our new SELL OUT GUARANTEE. What this means is that availability of this set will end on 31st August 2022. At that time, any sets that are unsold will be melted down and verified to that effect.

At that point, we will issue to owners of this set a new certificate stating the final mintage which may be lower, or possibly considerably lower, than 1,897. If the mintage remains at 1,847 then this means the set sold out entirely to keen customers, and if not, you may have secured for yourself a low mintage rarity.

Either way, there will be little or no surplus of this set on the secondary market and so the set you own will be a rarity in the gold sovereign series.
