2022 marks the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the throne: 75 years as a Monarch, a life of dedication to public service and her subjects…..The Queen is now officially the second longest reigning monarch in the world (after Louis XIV)
To celebrate her majesty's incredible life and longevity, the Royal Mint has created a beautiful new coin: the Double Sovereign gold coin.
For the occasion, the reverse of the coin has had a makeover and a new design. This design is the work of Timothy Noad, a renowned numismatic artist. Timothy Noad has worked as a professional calligrapher, illuminator and heraldic artist for over 30 years. His work combines knowledge of both traditional and modern techniques. The new 2022 double Sovereign 2 pounds coin switches from the classic Pistrucci design in favour of this beautiful rendition of the Royal coat of Arms.
Sovereign coins, also known as Chief coin in the world, are issued with a nominal value in Pound Sterling but none of the coins bear this face value marking on the specimens themselves.
To celebrate the Platinum jubilee, the Royal Mint has featured the image of the shield of the UK with the Imperial Crown and the lion of England together with the Unicorn of Scotland supporting the shield.
The obverse depicts the modern fifth generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 2015 by Jody Clark, the design shows the Queen at the age of 85. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
The 2022 Double Sovereign is struck in 22 carat gold per tradition and is VAT free and capital gains tax exempt (because it is a legal tender pound sterling coin) making it a very good choice for investors.
This coin with its new unique design is a must have in your collection and is now available to purchase on Coininvest. Don't wait any longer!
