Description

Produced to commemorate Her Majesty The Queen’s Jubilee year, the 2002 gold Sovereign features a unique one off design by Timothy Noad, a herald painter at Her Majesty’s College of Arms. It was only the second time in 100 years that the Royal Mint deviated from Pistrucci’s familiar depiction of St. George slaying the dragon. The design depicts a crowned shield of the Royal Arms, with a surround of laurel leaves, tied neatly at the bottom with ribbon. Noad’s initials, can be seen at the edge of the laurel leaves at about the 4 o-clock position.

This coin is in its original proof condition, complete with original box and COA.

The obverse face of the 2002 sovereign uses the design by Ian Rank-Broadley, first seen in 1998. His initials can be seen below the truncation.
