King Henry Viii

King Henry Viii
In 1489, King Henry VII asked the Royal Mint for a "new money of gold." The result was truly a coin fit for a king: the legendary British Gold Sovereign. Serving as a symbol of royal power and coveted across the British Empire for its rich, reliable gold content and classic design, it became known as the "World's Chief Coin." Now, celebrate the 200th anniversary of this historic coin with the Historic British Sovereign 200th Anniversary Coin Collection, available in a strict limited edition of 2,017 complete collections worldwide in an exclusive presentation from The Bradford Exchange Mint. Your collection begins with Issue One, The Henry VIII Golden Sovereign 200th Anniversary Crown. Soon your collection will continue with Issue Two, Deluxe Display Box and additional 24K gold-plated legal tender coins, each a separate issue to follow.

Honouring 200 years of a British treasure, each gleaming crown coin in this collection is lavishly plated in 24K gold. Official legal tender of Tristan da Cunha, Issue One showcases King Henry VIII in full colour on the reverse. An inset recalls his Sovereign coin's intricate design. The obverse of the coin features today's British Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Produced from Proof Quality coining dies to create polished, mirror-like finishes, each of these collectible coins arrives sealed for protection in a crystal-clear holder.

Display box measures 11-1/2" W x 2" H x 4-5/8" D; 29.2 cm W x 5.1 cm H x 11.7 cm D
