The 1/2 sovereign was an English gold coin first introduced in 1544 under King Henry VIII’s reign. The 1/2 sovereign was minted until 1603 and then was discontinued until 1817 when it was minted again for circulation until World War II. This makes the 1/2 sovereign one of the longest minted coinages in history. As these coins were minted for circulation, they often show considerable wear. Minting began again in 1980 in limited quantities as a bullion/collector coin.
