What is a 4 Coin Sovereign Set?

The first modern 4 coin gold proof sovereign set was issued by the Royal Mint in 1980. Each coin is made of 22 carat gold, and minted to the highest quality, with proof like fields, and raised cameo portraits. The set contains the following coins:

Coin Weight (Grams) Diameter (MM)
Five Pounds (£5) 39.94 36.02
Two Pounds (£2) 15.98 28.4
Sovereign 7.98 22.05
Half Sovereign 3.99 19.3


In total, the 4 gold proof coins contain just over 2 ounces of pure gold. The 4 coin sovereign set is popular with both coin collectors and bullion investors alike.

What is the Value of a 4 Coin Sovereign Set?

The value of 4 coin gold proof sovereign sets is highly dependent on the date and condition. One of the most desirable dates is the 1989 500th anniversary 4 coin sovereign set. Each coin in the set features the Tudor Rose design, a similar design used on the first gold sovereign issued in 1489 during the reign of King Henry VII. For perfect examples of this set, we are currently paying £3000 each.

Due to high gold prices, most 4 coin gold proof sovereign set dates have a value based upon the price of gold. We sell many sets for a premium over the gold price.
