The Jubilee Shield Sovereign Set
This superb collection contains two gold sovereigns, each with the crowned shield of the Royal Arms framed within a wreath.
In celebrating another Golden Jubilee, it was decided that to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, the image of a young Queen Victoria would best represent the celebration of this event.
Handsomely presented in a specially designed case both coins are 22 carat gold. The 1872 Young Head sovereign was originally struck for circulation and is 'very fine' quality or better. The 2002 sovereign of Queen Elizabeth II is of normal production standard and subject to an issue limit of 100,000. However, this special set commemorating the Golden Jubilees of both monarchs was limited to just 500 sets issued by The Royal Mint. The sovereigns are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity attesting to their quality and low issue limit and also includes interesting facts about the sovereign and their designs.

The Royal Mint, not content with its monopoly in producing new sovereigns, has for some years now been buying mintmark and other sets of sovereigns from the numismatic trade, and marketing them to its "Coin Club" members (customers) at poor value prices. Sadly because most of its customers are not coin collectors, but ordinary members of the public who, for some reason, appear to trust the Royal Mint.
The Royal Mint does not have any of these sets available on their website, but as we know, they often charge high premiums and we suspect this limited edition set will have been charged at a high premium when it was released
Government Wealth Warning
We wonder if some of the Royal Mint's offerings should come with a "Government Wealth Warning".
