2002 British 3 Coin Gold Sets

  • Gold Sovereign Series
    New Design for the Golden Jubilee

    Unfolding Story
    On Wednesday 15th August 2001, our sources in Atlanta Georgia told us that next year's - 2002 - sovereigns and half sovereigns would have a shield reverse. The 2 gold coins will also use this new design. We immediately asked the Royal Mint for further information, but none was officially available.
    This information is now official, and we show a photograph of the new shield design.
  • Proofs Expected in January 2002
    For year 2002, the proofs will be issued in January, instead of April. This information appears to be official, but we will keep this page updated.

  • Shield Reverse
    The shield reverse was last used for Queen Victoria from 1838 to 1887 inclusive. This was Victoria's golden jubilee year, and the design of the sovereigns was changed in that year. In fact for the date 1887. It is perhaps fitting, then, that the Royal Mint appear to have chosen not only to change the sovereign design for our own queen's golden jubilee, but also to revert back to the shield design.

  • Advance Orders
    As in other recent years, we have already placed a large advance order for both proof gold 3 and 4 coin sets. We are now be inviting advance orders. Customers placing advance orders will benefit from a combination of an beneficial advance order price coupled with our price guarantee, under which we will absorb the first part of any official price increase, and a customer cancellation clause in the event that we need to ask for more money.

  • Issue Limits
    For 2001, the issue limit was only 1,500. The issue limits for 2002 have been increased considerably to 5,000 because of the Golden Jubilee celebrations. Without doubt the Royal Mint will have plans to promote and advertise these sets widely.

  • 2001 Prices
    Our prices for 2001 are currently as follows, and we expect that the 2002 prices will be similar, but slightly higher. Gold bullion prices will obviously affect the Royal Mint's final decision on official pricing.

  • Price Guarantee
    Our advance ordering scheme included a price guarantee:- In the event that the Royal Mint reduces its issue price, we will refund the difference.
    If the Royal Mint increase its issue price, we will absorb the first 5% of any increase, and if there is any excess, give you the option to cancel your order for a complete and prompt refund of deposit.
