2017 5 Coin Gold Proof Sovereign Set
To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the sovereign, the original 1817 portrayal of St George and the dragon was chosen for the reverse design of the sovereign series.
The 2017 5 coin gold proof sovereign set contains a gold proof five pounds piece (£5), two pounds piece (£2), sovereign, half sovereign and quarter sovereign. All 5 coins are made of solid 22 carat gold (0.916 fine).
Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait features on the obverses of all 5 coins.
The coins come housed in their original Royal Mint wooden presentation case, complete with outer card box and sleeve. Accompanying the set is a numbered certificate of authenticity, as well as an information booklet.
Only 750 2017 5 coin gold proof sovereign set were issued by the Royal Mint.
