Each year since 1980, The Royal Mint have produced sets of 3 and 4 coins in the gold sovereign series.
The certificate in the set reads:
'For the 2007 Sovereign the Royal Mint is using the latest technology, coupled with traditional engraving skills, to recapture the fineness of Pistrucci's early St. George and the dragon from the period of the Neo-Classical revival during the 19th century.
An original hand-engraved design, modified by Pistrucci himself for the Crown Piece of 1818, was scanned into the computer and a large- scale copy was cut in plaster. Elements of the detail were then worked in by hand to ensure that, as far as possible, a faithful rendering of the design was achieved.
The tooling was produced to the required dimensions of the Sovereign and at this size the engravers again completed the finishing touches by hand.
Through this process the intricate details and contours of the composition have been restored so that the sovereign now stands as a sculptured from in a way that Pistrucci himself would have advised.
The 2007 Sovereigns are indeed a tribute to the great masterpiece. Their owners will be taken back almost two centuries to see Pistrucci's St. George and the dragon sovereigns in all their neo-Classical glory.'
The obverse for each of the three coins bears the fourth definitive UK coin portrait of Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.
In previous years the 3 coin and 4 coin sovereign collections have usually contained all coins of the same design, however in a number of years, the two pound coin included with the sets has been the commemorative version instead. The coins in this 2007 proof set all bear the St George and Dragon engraving by Benedetto Pistrucci.
