      1913 saw the last Half Sovereign struck before the World would know the horrors of total war. After World War One, The Sovereign was never again used for circulated purposes, ending a history that stretched back to 1489. Herbert Henry Asquith, the Prime Minister who would take the country into World War One, sits in number 10 Downing Street. Harry Brearley of Sheffield invents Stainless Steel, which is still to this day the most widely used alloy in the world. But 1913 is best remembered for the sacrifices of the people dedicated to the Suffragette movement. Today we may take the right to vote for granted. When we turn 18, regardless of gender or class, we have a voice at the polls. Just over 100 years ago, before the outbreak of the First World War, that right was held by a narrow section of society; just 60% of male householders over the age of 21. One of the most shocking moments of the 20th Century occurred in this year when Suffragette Emily Davison throws herself in front of the horse of King George V at the Epsom Derby, becoming the first woman to give her life in the fight for female emancipation. In May of that year, Suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 9 months imprisonment for conspiracy, but was released the following month on grounds of ill health. Later that year she would deliver her Freedom or Death speech, considered one of the greatest of the 20th Century asking her captivated audience "is there any limit to what we can do except the limit we put upon ourselves?"

      In 1914 Britain’s gold coinage was the envy of the world with The Sovereign regarded as the very pinnacle of the standards maintained by The Royal Mint. But as war broke out across Europe, Britain would need gold bullion, a finite resource, to finance the war effort. Within months this world famous gold coin was no longer used in everyday transactions. This ‘Extremely Fine’ Half-Sovereign features the coinage portrait of King George V created by Bertram Mackennal, a highly regarded Australian artist and a favourite of the king.

      This pure gold 25 cent coin is both affordable and beautiful, featuring a bouquet of Canadian maple leaves. As a nation that is defined by diversity, it is only fitting that our national emblem isn’t just one type of maple leaf, but can be represented by all the species that are native to Canada. The design features four different maple leaves together in a grouping that highlights their differences and their similarities. The leaves include the bigleaf maple, red maple, sugar maple, and the Manitoba maple. Each leaf is distinct, but each one has a part to play in the creation of a larger maple leaf shape that serves as a symbol of Canadian pride.

      The 2019 Concorde 50th Anniversary Gold Prestige Sovereign Proof Set When Concorde first took to the skies fifty years ago, the world watched in awe as a new age of supersonic travel roared into life. Capable of travelling at twice the speed of sound, nothing came near Concorde for sheer style and innovation, and the rich and famous clamoured for the chance to fly on the world’s fastest passenger jet. Her final flight in 2003 marked the sad end to a great era but despite this she is still an icon of one of the greatest achievements ever in aviation. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Concorde’s first flight, gold sovereign coins have been minted – and just like the world-first aircraft it celebrates, this is the first set of sovereigns coins ever to be reverse-frosted. Plus when the three coins in this set are aligned in the correct position, they form the complete side image of Concorde, its distinctive sharp nose cone raised as its powerful rear engines thrust to bring it safely into land. These coins are all major ‘firsts’ – they are the first sovereign coins ever to be reverse-frosted, resulting in a design of exceptional contrast. This set includes the quarter sovereign, half sovereign and full sovereign, each struck in the highest possible Proof quality. All have low mintages – the quarter sovereign is limited to 2,999, the sovereign to 2,019 coins – but it’s the half sovereign that really catches the eye at just 1,969. The impact of that lower mintage is that 35% of the people who own the quarter sovereign will not be able to own the half sovereign! This will have a great bearing on the market for this coin. Authorised by Gibraltar and minted in Britain, the 2019 Concorde 50th Anniversary Gold Prestige Sovereign Proof Set is a superb celebration of Concorde. Considerable demand is expected for these world-first coins celebrating the world’s first Concorde flight so don’t miss out and order now!
