A quarter sovereign!

Posted on Fri, 2 January 2009 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News

Back in 1853 two pattern quarter sovereigns were produced - the coin was never generally issued though and those patterns are the only quarter sovereigns we've ever had - until now that is!

In February the Royal mint will issue just 10,000 quarter sovereigns - depicting the classic Pistrucci "George and the Dragon" on the reverse the 13.5mm coin will appear in the five coin gold sets and will also retail individually at £54.95...!
