Royal Mint Product Description:

1979 was an eventful year for the United Kingdom. The Royal Family mourned the loss of Lord Mountbatten, assassinated as a casualty of a troubled Northern Ireland. Margaret Thatcher was elected as the United Kingdom's first female Prime Minister and music became portable as Sony released the Walkman. What memories does the year hold for you?

Struck by The Royal Mint for centuries, The Sovereign has endured through the ages, bearing witness to world events. This original edition, struck in 1979, is adorned by the legendary Saint George and the dragon design, struck in 22 carat gold and finished to Proof standard, just as you would expect for this majestic coin. The obverse evokes nostalgia as it bears the second circulating coinage portrait of The Queen by Arnold Machin. Secure your piece of history today, direct from The Royal Mint.
