We can now reveal the new design for the United Kingdom 2012 United Kingdom Gold Sovereign by the Royal Mint.

This new design will be issued for one year only to mark the celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and will be only the fourth design change witnessed on the Sovereign since 1887. Each coin will bear a new beautifully composed rendition of St George and the Dragon by sculptor Paul Day and will be struck in 22 Carat Gold.
