Specifications

The British Sovereign was first produced in 1817 and was minted until 1937. The coin was freely traded at face value as a circulating coin while Britain was on the gold standard. When Britain abandoned the gold standard, production of the sovereign ceased.

Production of half sovereigns began again in 1980, this time as a bullion coin, and continues to this day.

The obverse features an effigy of the King or Queen ruling at the time the coin was minted.

The reverse features an image of St. George the dragon slayer sitting upon a horse, with the dragon below them. This same image has been used on the sovereign for almost 200 years.

Dates on the coins we sell may vary from the 1800's up to present day. These are a pre-owned product, and condition may vary. While these coins are commonly referred to as 1/4 oz, the actual gold weight of the coins is 0.2354 troy ounces.

To protect your investment and ensure worry-free shipping, your proof gold coin purchase includes a rugged, attractive coin-capsule for transport and display.
