The Isle of Man Christmas Sovereign is back for 2022!
Each coin in the range has been struck from precious metals. And this year for the very first time, we have been treated to the rare, Silver Piedfort specification.
This means there really is something for everyone in this 2022 Christmas Sovereign range authorised by Isle of Man.
And I must say, it has to be one of the most intricately designed Sovereigns I have ever seen – take a look for yourself!
But there are 5 reasons why you need to secure this Sovereign over any other…
1. The most collectable edition yet
Both the Gold and Silver specifications of the Christmas Sovereign have had their edition limits reduced significantly for 2022. Not only does this make the coin rarer than its predecessors – but it means that those who secured it for their collections last year, are likely to miss out. You see, the Silver has gone down from 2,021 to 1,350, and the Gold has been reduced from 195 to 150.
2. Same specification as UK Sovereign
In the 19th Century, the ‘Sovereign’ coin became known as ‘The Chief Coin of the World’, and every year The Royal Mint issue a commemorative Gold Sovereign, struck to the exact same specifications as the first ‘modern’ Sovereign issued in 1817 – experiencing sell-outs every year. The 2022 Isle of Man Gold Christmas Sovereign is struck to the exact same specifications, but it’s always a lot more limited…
3. Incredibly rare
Just have a look for yourself at how much rarer the Isle of Man 2022 Christmas Gold Sovereign is compared to the UK 2022 Gold Sovereigns:
- UK 2022 Platinum Jubilee Gold Sovereign – 10,500 SOLD OUT
- UK 2022 Memorial Gold Sovereign – 17,500 SOLD OUT
- Isle of Man 2022 Christmas Gold Sovereign – 150
4. The LAST Christmas Sovereign to feature the Queen’s portrait
After the sad passing of our late monarch Queen Elizabeth II, as I’m sure you’re aware, the collectibles industry has seen a peak in demand for commemoratives featuring or honouring our late Queen. The Isle of Man Christmas Sovereign is certainly going to be the last to feature her effigy. So it’s best to secure yours whilst you still can, before they disappear into the secondary markets.
5. Proof finish (AND colour-printing)
Proof specification coins mean they have been struck multiple times using specially polished dies to create a flawless mirrored effect on the coin. These coins are issued only as commemorative special editions and not as circulating coins to pay for your lunch with!
The Silver Proof and Silver Proof Piedfort specifications go that extra mile, however. As well as being struck to a Proof finish, they have been enhanced with innovative colour-printing technology on the reverse – really bringing to life that festive design.
