The first time the Royal Mint of England issued a sovereign gold coin set to mark a sporting event was in 1986 when Scotland hosted the Commonwealth Games. The eighth installment of the games was hosted in Edinburgh in July and August of that year and the Royal Mint honored the event with three gold coins in a limited-issue set. Right now, 1986 Proof Gold British 3-Coin Sets are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Coin Set Highlights:

  • Ships to you inside of a commemorative presentation case with an included Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Celebrates the 1986 Commonwealth Games!
  • Issue limited to 1,500 coin sets only!
  • Consists of .8239 Troy ounces of actual gold content.
  • The obverse side of the coins features Queen Elizabeth II.
  • On the reverse face of two coins is St. George and the dragon, while the third coin has the Scottish thistle.

Each 1986 Proof Gold British 3-Coin Set comes with three coins in total housed together inside of a three-coin set. The commemorative box features a red exterior and has three slots to house each of the coins individually. Also included with your purchase today is a Certificate of Authenticity from the Royal Mint of England.

This 1986 Proof Gold British 3-Coin Set includes three distinctive coins. In the set, you will find a Gold British Sovereign, a Gold British Half Sovereign, and a 2 Pound sterling coin with the Scottish thistle design on the reverse field.

The obverse of the Gold British Sovereign, Gold British Half Sovereign, and 2 Pound sterling Scottish Thistle coins in this set feature the image of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the third-generation effigy from Raphael Maklouf that was used on British denominations from 1984 to 1997, at which point it was replaced by the famous Ian Rank-Broadley design.

On the reverse of the Gold British Sovereign and Gold British Half Sovereign coin, you will find a depiction of St. George slaying the dragon. The image of St. George riding his fearless steed into battle against the dragon was created in 1817 by Benedetto Pistrucci for the new Gold Sovereigns issued in that same year. The reverse of the 2 Pound sterling gold coin in the set has the Scottish thistle, the official flower of Scotland. The thistle was used to honor Scotland as the host nation of the Commonwealth Games.

The XIII Commonwealth Games was hosted in Edinburgh and was the subject of an intense boycott. 27 nations participated, but 32 members of the Commonwealth nations boycotted and skipped the games.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
