This 2002 proof gold sovereign 3 coin set consists of a sovereign, half sovereign and double sovereign or two pound piece.
See the rest of the 2002 Sovereign Collection.
The shield reverse was last used for Queen Victoria from 1838 to 1887 inclusive. This was Victoria's golden jubilee year, and the design of the sovereigns was changed in that year. In fact for the date 1887. It is perhaps fitting, then, that the Royal Mint appear to have chosen not only to change the sovereign design for our own Queen's golden jubilee, but also to revert back to the shield design.
The issue limit for the 2001 3-coin sovereign set was only 1,500. The issue limits for 2002 have been increased considerably to 5,000 because of the Golden Jubilee celebrations.
The obverse bears the fourth portrait of Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley with the inscription:
The reverse engraving marks the Queen's Golden Jubilee. The Shield design of the Royal Arms within a wreath of laurel was created by Timothy Noad, a herald painter at the College of Arms.
