Strength and Popularity
The Modern Sovereign Series
The Modern Proof Sovereign Series began in 1979 with the first proof sovereign released for collectors. After over 40 years, the series is still going strong and with more interest than has ever been seen. Modern Sovereigns trade frequently and with consistent pricing that reveals a firm, upward trend over the past four decades. The 2022 Memorial Sovereign stands on the shoulders of this longevous and popular series.
King Charles III
A Subtle and Delicate Bust
The new obverse design stands out in its subtlety and is masterfully designed by accomplished sculptor Martin Jennings. All over the country, Jennings work can be seen in his skilful statues of Larkin, Orwell, Dickens and many others. Now his work will not just grace the country's streets, but its citizens' coinage.
Jennings has devised a low relief and strikingly delicate depiction of our new monarch. Charles III - known for his unassuming nature and devotion to wildlife and charity - is perfectly captured in this design.
Royal Coat of Arms
A Striking and Intricate Reverse
Jody Clark is no stranger to British coinage. His designs have been used on our coins to resounding success for over a decade. His newest design, however, could be his masterpiece. With a Pistrucci-like attention to detail and distinctive style, Clark has breathed new life into the Royal Coat of Arms. This bold reverse perfectly contrasts the understated obverse, making this coin a considered work of art as a whole.
Clark's magnum opus exists as the most striking and accomplished of any “one-off” design that has been before it..
