Why purchase this 4-Piece 2021 Gold Sovereign/Silver Pound Complete Set?
In 2011, Tian Tian and Yang Guang, two pandas, arrived on loan at the Edinburgh Zoo. The pandas brought to a close a seventeen year period during which no pandas were on display in Great Britain. Edinburgh has been one of just nine zoos located outside of China to have pandas on display. This release marks the first ever Sovereigns issued by a British Commonwealth to feature a Panda themed design. They were issued to mark the tenth anniversary of their arrival in Edinburgh, as well as their departure from the Scottish capital.
Stunning Pandas Design by "Rocky" Zhao
Obverse: The obverse design is the first ever rendering of Queen Elizabeth II by a Chinese artist to appear on a coin. Zhao shows her in right-side profile wearing a crown. Her image is encircled by inscriptions of her name, "ELIZABETH II," the name of the issuing territory, "EAST CARIBBEAN STATES," the coin's respective face values, and the date, "2021."
Reverse: On the reverse, the two pandas visiting the Edinburgh Zoo are depicted within a yin-yang symbol. A Scottish tartan pattern fills half of one side of that symbol, which represents friendship between China and Scotland. The weight and purity of the respective coin is inscribed on this face.
Perfect PF70 UC FDI
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that these coins appear perfect even under 5x magnification by awarding them their highest grade, Proof 70. They also credited them for having deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices that contrast sharply by certifying them Ultra Cameo. Finally, the grading company noted that they were submitted for grading through an exclusive process by certifying them First Day of Issue.
