The Sold Out Diamond Jubilee Proof Sovereign – available in limited numbers
Only 5,500 Gold Proof Sovereigns were issued by The Royal Mint in 2012 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II – the first time such a landmark had been celebrated on the nation’s most important coin. This compared to a figure of 12,500 Proof Sovereign coins released 10 years earlier to mark the Golden Jubilee.
With such a small mintage – as well as the addition of a unique design for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations – it was of no surprise that these coins sold out within weeks of the official release, with demand outstripping supply substantially.
Diamond Jubilee celebrations are extremely rare; therefore it was of little surprise that this coin went on to become such a must-have issue. The good news is that we have been able to secure a small quantity of these coins to offer our customers. But with this coin being so difficult to find, this could well be your only chance to secure one.
