2022 Memorial 5 Coin Gold Proof Sovereign Set
The 2022 Memorial 5 coin gold proof sovereign set commemorates the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It is the first sovereign issue to depict King Charles III.
The 2022 Memorial 5 coin gold proof sovereign set contains a gold proof five pounds (£5), two pounds (£2), sovereign, half sovereign and quarter sovereign.
The 2022 sovereign series features a new reverse design to commemorate the life and dedication of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. A Royal Coat of Arms was created by Jody Clark, the artist behind the Queen’s Beasts series.
The Memorial sovereign issue is the first sovereign to depict King Charles III, designed by Martin Jennings.
The reverse design of the sovereign has only been changed a handful of times by the Mint – 1989, 2002, 2005, 2012 and 2017. All of these dates are extremely sought after by collectors.
The 2022 Memorial 5 coin gold proof sovereign set comes in its original Royal Mint presentation case with a certificate of authenticity. Only 1,200 sets have been issued by the Royal Mint.
