Queen Elizabeth II’s history-making life and reign was like nothing else, and nothing underlines this more than this set of two gold sovereigns – The Queen Elizabeth II 95th Birthday Gold Sovereign Pair of 1926 & 2021.
Both gold sovereigns in this set feature St George and the dragon, but they are from two entirely different eras.
The first was minted in the year she was born – 1926 – and was a ‘currency’ sovereign from an era when the pound was backed by gold.
The second coin in this set is the brand new PROOF quality sovereign of 2021 and to honour Her Late Majesty’s 95th birthday the coin features a privy mark near the date – a crowned number ’95’ to recognise her 95th birthday. Only 7,995 coins were released singly.
This is a superb pair of gold sovereigns – the coin that bears the name of the monarch. They acknowledge the year Queen Elizabeth II was born – 1926 – and this year’s history-making 95th birthday with the 2021 Proof sovereign with the ‘crowned 95’ privy mark.
