The changing of a coinage portrait is an historic occasion making 2015 a vintage year for the coins of the United Kingdom. The Sovereign has long been adorned by the iconic reverse design depicting St George slaying the dragon, yet the tale of St George is not the only story The Sovereign tells; since its introduction every sovereign struck has featured a portrait of a British king or queen on its obverse, charting a record of the nation’s monarchy through the ages.

Struck in 22 carat gold and finished to Proof standard, showcasing the faithful, yet gentle, likeness captured by Jody Clark. The coin’s reverse is adorned by the iconic St George and the Dragon, while the obverse bears the fifth coinage portrait of The Queen, presented in a stylish case along with a booklet that reveals the fascinating story behind this, and previous, coinage portrait changes.

Capturing a portrait on the surface of a coin demands the utmost skill, one of the most challenging disciplines of the coin designer’s art. Engravers at The Royal Mint are selected for their talent and receive training like no other, learning to combine state-of-the-art technology with time-honed craftsmanship. The fifth definitive portrait of Her Majesty The Queen has been designed by Royal Mint engraver, Jody Clark.

Minted in a limited edition presentation of 7,000 coins, The 2015 Fifth Portrait Sovereign comes in an elegant wooden display case with numbered Certificate of Authenticity plus a detailed booklet.
