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.
As we wrote this (December 2007), the price of the same set was £1,245 and the Royal Mint's latest price on its Gold Sovereign Mints & Monarchs 8 Coin Collection was £1645! Where appropriate, we may replace the original sovereigns with higher grade ones.
