We received our first delivery of proof sovereigns on 18th November, 2015.

These coins are now sold out at the mint. We have a small supply, but once they're sold out we cannot source any more and would only buy them on the secondary market.

Gold Proof Sovereign - New Obverse

The proof version of the 2016 full sovereign features a new obverse portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, to celebrate her 90th Birthday. It was designed by the artist, James Butler, and previosly appeared on the 2015 Longest Reigning Monarch coins.

The uncirculated coins will feature the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. This is the first time the portrait has been used on the uncirculated sovereigns, having been featured on the 2015 proof sovereign.

The reverse features the famous St George and the dragon design, by Benedetto Pistrucci.

Proof Sovereigns

We have always been able to offer the proof sovereign at significant discount to The Royal Mint (and many of our competitors) as we are happy to pass any trade discount on to our customers. In recent years the trade discount has been reduced and The Royal Mint's selling terms are becoming more and more one-sided.

Buying from Chard

Not only can we guarantee that our prices for the proof coins are cheaper than The Royal Mint's but buying from us you also get the benefit of buying from expert professional numismatists who have been in the business for over 50 years. While we appreciate the Royal Mint have existed for longer, we know more about sovereigns and half sovereigns than they do!

Issue Limits

The mintage figure for the 2016 proof sovereigns is 9,675. There are 7,500 issued in the individual presentation boxes.

 

Uncirculated Sovereigns - Fifth Portrait

The 2016 uncirculated sovereign will not feature this special obverse. Instead, they will feature the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. The coins are available here.
