2018 Date Stamp' 1/1/2018 Queen Elizabeth II Full gold sovereign Box COA
2018 Date Stamp Full 22 carat Gold Sovereign. Sealed capsule, wooden case and Certificate of Authenticity included. The coin bears the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, aged 88 at the time of commission. It was designed by Jody Clark of the Royal Mint - the first time one of their own staff had sculpted the portrait - and features the Queen in the King George IV State Diadem (worn during the annual State Opening of Parliament) and Diamond Jubilee drop pearl earrings.
In keeping with tradition, the obverse of the coin portrays St George on a horse slaying a dragon, and then the Queen appears on the reverse. The latin accompanying her is DEI GRA REGINA FID DEF. Expanded this is'Dei Gratia Regina' or'By the Grace of God, Queen'.
FID DEF stands for'Fidei defensor' which means'Defender of the Faith'; a nod to her status as Supreme Governor of the Church of England.
