Royal Mint Product Description:

In 1897, for the very first time, the British people witnessed a Diamond Jubilee. A frailer figure than the one who appeared at the Golden Jubilee celebrations ten years previously, Queen Victoria was confined to her state coach by painful arthritis during the six-mile royal procession. But with the best of British on show, bolstered by colonial forces, the jubilee celebrations were still a mighty statement of imperial power.

This 1897 gold Sovereign recalls the high-water mark of Empire when the pink of British territories dominated the map. This edition bears the final effigy of Queen Victoria's reign - the -old head' used on coinage until her death in 1901 - coupled with Benedetto Pistrucci's classic St George and the dragon design. This coin is presented in -Very Fine' condition and recalls the ceremony of one of the great occasions of state.
