Each year since 1980, the Royal Mint have produced sets of 3 and 4 coins in the gold sovereign series. The 3 coin sets consist of a sovereign, half sovereign and double sovereign or two pound piece.
See the rest of the 2008 Sovereign Collection.
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. For 2008, there is a change. The three coin sets contain the definitive St. George and dragon design.
Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II features on the coin's obverse. This is the fourth portrait of Elizabeth to appear on sovereigns. It was used from 1998 until 2015. The engraver's initials IRB are under the truncated neck. The obverse bears the legend:
The reverse features the Benedetto Pistrucci depiction of St. George slaying the dragon. This was slightly changed in 2007 when the dies were re-engraved.
