Royal Mint Product Description:

A Celebration of 50 Years

A 1968 and 2018 Sovereign presented side by side

The 1960s was the most transformative decade in British history. As the constraints of the 1950s loosened, Britain began to swing. The booming economy gave rise to a new hedonism, blowing away any vestiges of a lingering post-war hangover. The raucous rebellion of The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and The Who provided the soundtrack to this new social permissiveness, broadcast from pirate stations offshore as the established media struggled to keep pace with changing tastes.

This two-coin set evokes memories of 1968, the year Manchester United won the European Cup, the musical -Hair' opened on the London stage and closer to home, The Royal Mint at Llantrisant was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen in readiness for decimalisation. The set pairs an original Sovereign from 1968 with The Sovereign 2018, struck to bullion standard.
