1985 Gold Proof Double Sovereign

This 1985 Gold Proof Double Sovereign is a commemorative coin issued by the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom. It has a face value of two pounds sterling and is made of 22-carat gold. The coin was issued to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the birth of George Frideric Handel, the famous German composer who spent much of his life in Britain.

The coin features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, and a design by Leslie Durbin on the reverse, which shows a harp and a lyre, both symbols of Handel's music.

The 1985 Gold Proof Double Sovereign is a limited edition coin, with only 5,000 pieces minted. It is considered a valuable collector's item and its value depends on its condition, rarity, and demand.
