Why choose this Proof 70 Ultra Cameo First Releases 2017 Great Britain Pistrucci 200th Anniversary 1/2 oz. Piedfort Proof Gold Sovereign with an exclusive Tower Bridge label?
While the British Gold Sovereign was used for centuries, the modern version reached its 200th anniversary in 2017. To mark the occasion, the British Royal Mint struck this 1/2 oz. piedfort gold proof. It is made of 22-karat gold and mintage is limited to just 3,750 pieces. Piedfort coins are always a treat for collectors. They are twice the thickness of their standard counterparts and they are only issued for very special occasions.
Pistrucci's classic design
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse. This is the most recent coinage portrait of Her Majesty, it is the work of Jody Clark. The date is inscribed just above Queen Elizabeth II's crown.
The reverse displays St. George as he slays a dragon. This finely detailed design has been recreated from the classic version created by Benedetto Pistrucci.
