Why does this flawless First Day of Issue 2021 Gold Sovereign 2-Coin Proof Set belong in your collection?
This gorgeous 2-piece gold proof set represents the first ever British Commonwealth release of sovereign coinage to be paired with a Panda image. The set is an homage to the arrival and departure of Chinese Panda bears Tian Tian ("Sweetie") and Yang Guang ("Sunshine") at the Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland. Per an agreement with China, the delightful couple arrived in 2011 for a ten-year stay in Scotland.
Exciting Panda Imagery
Obverse: Centered on the obverse is a right facing portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Surrounding inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "EAST CARIBBEAN STATES," "2021" and the appropriate denomination.
Reverse: The reverse features the Panda duo, Tian Tian and Yang Guang, one climbing a tree while the other nibbles on a bamboo stalk. The background features a Yin Yang symbol, patterned with a Scottish Tartan plaid design to symbolize the agreement and friendship between the countries. Inscribed with the coin's weight and purity, along with the Edinburgh Assay Office privy mark. Obverse and reverse designs are the work of renowned Chinese coin designer "Rocky" Zhao. The Panda Sovereign series represents the inaugural use of this likeness of the Queen, as well as the first to be created by a Chinese artist.
Exceptional Proof 70 Ultra Cameo Set
The Panda Sovereign and Double Sovereign 2021 dated gold proof coins in the set were submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for review and earned the First Day of Issue designation. Each coin was deemed to be in perfect Proof 70 condition, featuring an astounding amount of contrast between frosted and mirrored finishes worthy of the Ultra Cameo (UC) designation. Each coin is sealed in a NGC protective holder with a specially designed, panda themed label confirming its First Day of Issue status. The graded set is elegantly presented in a deluxe wooden presentation case along with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity a storybook detailing the inspiration for this extraordinary commemorative release.
This beautiful First of Day of Issue commemorative Panda 2021 Sovereign and Double Sovereign gold proof set will be a fantastic addition to your collection!
