2007 4-coin £1 Coin Gold Bridge Series
The Gateshead Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian and cycle bridge spanning the River Tyne in England between Gateshead on the south bank, and Newcastle upon Tyne on the north bank. The award-winning structure was conceived by architects Wilkinson Eyre, with structural engineers Gifford.
The bridge was lifted into place in one piece by the Asian Hercules II, one of the world's largest floating cranes, in November 2000. It was opened to the public a year later.
According to the mint, "Beautifully made in 22 carat gold, the Bridge series of one pounds includes four Proof coins representing Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England."
"Designed by the artist Edwina Ellis, each coin has been struck to exacting Proof standard and each has a border relating to the bridge depicted. Each set is beautifully housed in a luxurious presentation case and is completed with a Certificate of Authenticity."
This is a first time offer of a complete set of four gold coins together
