The Coins and Banknotes Auction featured an incredible selection of gold and silver coins, from gold sovereigns to silver coin sets. Also featured were a number of limited edition gold coin sets including the Edward VII Sovereign mintmark collection featuring a sovereign from each mint and limited to only 265 collections. The 2018 Sapphire Coronation Jubilee Gold Sovereign Series features a very hefty and impressive gold fifty pound coin. This coin alone weighs an astounding 155.5g and is limited to a mintage of only 26 coins.
One of the most unusual sets was the 2018 Armistice Centenary Remembrance Gold Gallantry five coin set. Limited to only 99 sets, each coin features the Remembrance gold finish, layered with ruthenium and the first gold sovereign coins to feature this finish. This darkens the look to all but the main motif. These two precious metals unite to produce a darker, more respectful commemoration of this event.
