New Dies

The coins in this set were minted using newly restored dies. Using "original Victorian tools" the dies have created a sharper and more detailed finish to the coins than the previous years. 

Sovereign Tax Status

This British gold proof five coin sovereign set is classed as legal tender pound sterling coins, so is exempt from capital gains tax. Investment gold is not subject to VAT which makes the sovereign a popular coin with collectors and investors. This set comes in a wooden presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.
