2022 Sovereign design revealed?


Recommended Posts

Really top draw with these updates @westminstrel keep up the good work!

Been begging for a new shield back for years. The 2002 was a poor attempt, I'd like to see a S/B with the original quality of JBM.

Can you image die numbers............... We would be in meltdown! 

BTW I believe it would be the last monarch to use this coat of arms, as once a male hair takes over they use the coat of arms that run down the male side, which I believe would be Prince Phillips line,  could we get Hercules on our next coat of arms?

This looks like what would be on the coin if @LawrenceChard was a designer at the Royal Mint.....

Could the reverse from the Gothic crown be considered a depiction of Our Royal Coat of Arms and the date of the year?

I did wonder if they might use a depiction (or interpretation) and not the actual Coat of Arms.

Can you imagine that intricate design on a Quarter Sovereign? 😬

‘Every five-pound piece, two-pound piece, sovereign and half-sovereign shall have for the obverse impression Our effigy with the inscription “· ELIZABETH II ∙ DEI ∙ GRA · REGINA ∙ FID ∙ DEF” and for the reverse a depiction of Our Royal Coat of Arms and the date of the year. The coins shall have a grained edge.’

The obvious coat of arms to use would be the one that we saw on the 1983 Pound coin - with the words "ONE POUND" replaced with "2022"

When I read coat of arms, I didn't think shield back I thought exactly the same as Zhorro, the traditional royal coat of arms of the two animals holding the shield.

It would make sense to do something new but still traditional, after all it's going to be a total one off occasion so you should get a design to match.

The other point I noticed was there was no mention of the 1/4 sovereign on the proclamation, so four coin sets instead of five coin sets this time around?

I can't say I'm much of a fan of coins that small, so it's no loss to me.

There is a separate proclamation for the Quarter Sovereign (see the second link in my original post).  I assume because the quarter was introduced only a decade or so back and had its own proclamation.

I suppose this is an alternative version - based on the One Pound coin of 2015.  I think I would prefer the 1983 coat of arms.

That design looks way too close to the silver coat of arms coin they've been releasing over the past few years, I doubt they'd go with that.

As exciting and as frenzied as things may get, I expect I will only get the Sovereign.

Agreed.

Only the full and half for me, as usual.

I could be tempted by a SOTD or Piedfort but the other sizes and sets don't interest me.

I like my coins individually boxed.

You have to consider though that this release could be the last for our monarch so it really is special.
