2012 Great Britain Diamond Jubilee Special Gold Sovereign

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

The year 1816 was a landmark for British coinage. The mint was moved from the Tower of London to a new site on Tower Hill and steam powered minting machinery built by Boulton and Watt replaced the old hand operated presses. Significantly, new coinage was produced with an intrinsic value substantially below the face value of each coin - the first official token coinage in the world. Gold sovereigns are probably the world's most famous and recognisable coins. They are extremely hard to replicate, smaller than a heavy 1oz so easier to carry and sell. Don't get caught up on the American Eagle hype, the Gold Sovereign is a superior coin, more well respected and has been around 180 years longer and still going strong today. Apex check the quality of the Gold Sovereigns they sell, they are all genuine so you have no concerns, if you are concerned consider the slabbed Sovereigns, from NGC or PCGS. The 2012 Great Britain Gold Sovereign Diamond Jubilee is one-of-a-kind gold sovereign, quite low mintage and one that will only increase in value in terms of Gold and numismatic value as collectors scramble to get their hands on them.


  • Pros
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

Diamond Jubilee

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

The reverse design has a polished-look that makes it hard to see the design. Design is not defined very well as it is displayed under magnification.


  • Pros
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Recognized Brand
  • Cons
  • Unattractive Design
  • Bottom Line
  • No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Merchant response: The dye used by various mints for any given year of a coin can impact its visibility and clarity.

Beautiful, unique coin

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

As a sovereign collector it was a given that I would get one of the Diamond Jubilees. It's a beauty! The premium is a bit higher than the other modern sovereigns, but since this is a unique, one-off design year, I believe it's worth it. Despite a higher than average mintage (750,000), hopefully we'll still see a decent appreciation on this one over time.


  • Pros
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Cool, lovely coin!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I have bought several "grab bag" Sovereigns, was impressed by the quality and design (2 George Vs and an early QE2), and when I saw this variation I had to have it. The 2012 reverse was a one-year-only modern take on St. George and the Dragon and is a beautiful design. My coin came in perfect, highly-polished BU condition (get a 22mm Air-Tite holder for them - form factor is nearly identical to the 1/4-ozt Gold Eagle). Try to buy when these are on sale, as the normal premium over spot is a heavy hit (on sale at this writing, the premium drops by a third). Nice to have at least one in the stack for a little variety, even if I won't be stacking em.

A Must for Sovereign Collectors

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

2012 was a one-off year for the reverse design of the British Gold Sovereign, therefore, more difficult to find. APMEX provides this coin in BU condition at a very good price. Highly recommended.


  • Pros
  • Recognized Brand
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition

Sovereign Type Collectors

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Great design for type collectors, and have to have one. Only problem is due to the chrome like finish, it's hard to see the design. Preferred the traditional satin or proof finish.


  • Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Bottom Line
  • No, I would not recommend this to a friend
