  • £495.00


Proof Sovereigns 1985-1997 by Raphael Maklouf (excluding 1989)

Specially struck versions of the classic gold sovereign, struck with polished dies to create a mirrored finish to the field and a frosted one to the detail.

No bullion sovereigns were issued between 1983 and 1999 the proof sovereign was the only type to be produced. The entire Raphael David Maklouf series has become quite sought after with demand growing steadily as collectors have no choice but to turn to the comparative small mintage proof type if they wish to put an example in their collection.

Obverse: Queen head coronet bust facing right effigy designed by Raphael David Maklouf, Initials RDM in truncation.

Reverse: St.George mounted with sword attacking the dragon, streamer flowing from St George's helmet. The date appears below the exergue line at the bottom with the letters B.P. to the right.
