Late last year the UK 2022 Proof Sovereign was released featuring a one-year-only design change to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
10,500 were made available at 9am on launch day.
By 6pm that very same day they were gone.
That made it the fastest-selling sovereign ever.
But a new UK sovereign could break that record…
Just Released: The UK 2022 Piedfort Sovereign
The special Piedfort edition of the UK 2022 Proof Sovereign has just been released. With an edition limit of just 3,250 — less than one-third of the edition limit of its Proof Sovereign counterpart — thousands of collectors wanting to own both are set to miss out.
An extremely rare specification of Sovereign
This is only the third Piedfort Sovereign to be struck by The Royal Mint.
When the first Piedfort Sovereign was released in 2017 to mark the bicentenary of the modern sovereign, it too sold out in just 24 hours.
This new release has an edition limit of 500 less, so another fast sell-out looks guaranteed.
The pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship
Piedfort coins are some of the finest examples of British craftsmanship and the Gold Proof Piedfort Sovereign is no exception. Each has been struck from 22-carat Gold, however, the Piedfort Sovereign has been struck using a double-thickness blank, meaning it contains twice the weight of Gold.
Considered extremely prestige pieces, Piedfort coins continue to be limited issues, and the striking of such coins is strictly reserved for the most important events. Therefore, it seems fitting for one to be issued in our Queen’s milestone Platinum Jubilee year.
Act quickly or risk missing out
With the UK 2022 Proof Sovereign and the very first UK Piedfort Sovereign both selling out within 24 hours, this latest release is practically guaranteed to follow suit. High demand is guaranteed.
Thousands of collectors will miss out. Make sure you’re not one of them.

Read on as we take a closer look at the latest images from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, and our stunning collection of commemoratives celebrating the Wonders of the Universe.
Our universe is a place of beauty, awe, and unknowns; an expanse full of intrigue that has drawn our gaze for centuries. From prehistoric cave paintings of the night sky to the stellar images sent back from NASA’s Hubble Telescope, we continue to fuel our fascination with what lies beyond what the eye can see…
In recent weeks, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope – a new telescope kitted out with the latest technology – has captured some genuinely breath-taking images of our universe, captivating audiences and making global headlines.
The Webb Telescope provides us with insights into the “deepest” reaches of the known universe, offering up some of the most detailed images of the cosmos ever seen.
Take a look below at some of the outstanding images from Webb’s observations of our universe…
Experts estimate that the universe stretches out infinitely – and with all that space to fill the scale of the planets, stars, and nebulas within it is tough to comprehend…
But today, you can take a tiny part of our universe home with our Wonders of the Universe Commemorative Set – and each commemorative is small enough to fit in your pocket!
The Wonders of the Universe Commemorative Set celebrates eight of the most magnificent and marvellous entities within our universe including The Milky Way – home to our Solar System, black holes, and supernovas!
Each commemorative is struck to a superior proof-like finish, with full-colour images individually applied. Your commemorative set comes with a FREE presentation case (worth £9.95), alongside information on each ‘wonder’ within the collection. And you can even pay for your set in instalments of as little as £15.
Just 995 sets were ever produced, so you won’t want to delay if you’d like to secure one of our remaining commemorative sets. Only a limited number remain available. I’d hate for you to miss out on a collectable item that’s truly out of this world.

It’s time to inject some magic into your collection, this is your first look at the design of the UK’s FIRST Harry Potter 50p…
25 Years of Magic
2023 marks 25 years since the first publication of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
This was the first issue in what was to become a seven-part series of fantasy literature, inviting generations of readers to explore the magical world of witches and wizards.
The Harry Potter series is the highest-selling series of novels to ever exist, with millions of fans spanning across generations, and even around the globe. It’s estimated that J. K. Rowling has sold over 500 million copies of her books, a testament to the popularity of the series.
Never before has there been an official UK coin featuring the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, until now!
What will feature in the collection?
As well as the Harry Potter 50p coin, the Royal Proclamation has revealed that we can expect the following to feature in the collection:
- A depiction of the Hogwarts Express and the figure of Harry Potter with the inscription, ‘Hogwarts Express 25 Years of Magic’
- A depiction of Albus Dumbledore and the inscription, ‘Albus Dumbledore 25 Years of Magic’
- A depiction of Hogwarts School and the inscription, ‘Hogwarts 25 Years of Magic’
2022 has already seen sell-outs across every denomination at The Royal Mint!
The Platinum Jubilee 50p and £5 coins sold out across their entire precious metal ranges within JUST hours of release. Just a month later, the Silver Proof, Silver Proof Piedfort, and Gold Proof specifications of the FA Cup £2 coin sold out within just a few hours.
With Harry Potter carrying a worldwide fanbase, we’re expecting demand to outweigh availability for the precious metal ranges of this brand new 50p collection.
