2002 United Kingdom Gold Proof Sovereign

  Description    Specifications      Free Delivery   


The highly coveted Golden Jubilee Sovereign that sold out in record time

The 2002 Golden Jubilee Sovereign is one of the most sought after UK coins of the reign of the late Queen Elizabeth II. With a combination of one-year-only design and royal commemoration, the coin is a must-have piece for any serious coin collection.

Significant Royal Celebration

In 2002 The Royal Mint made the decision to mark the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II with the issue of a new one year only sovereign.

The Golden Jubilee Sovereign was just the second design change to feature on the UK Sovereign since 1887 when it was released. As a result of that, and the national euphoria that was generated by the significant royal celebration, the coin rapidly sold out of its 12,500 edition limit, with the official declaration coming before the end of January 2002.

Demand is greater than ever for this coin due to the scarce numbers that are available on the secondary market and the success of the Diamond Jubilee Sovereign in 2012. The good news however, is that Harrington & Byrne has been able to secure a limited stock of the sought after Gold coin – and in original Royal Mint Presentation.

But to secure yours, a prompt response is essential. Only limited stock remains.
