The gold half-sovereign coin is a historical British gold coin that holds a denomination of half a full sovereign. The half-sovereign has a weight of 3.99 grams and a diameter of 19.3 mm. It is made of 22-carat gold, which means that it is 91.67% pure gold. This gold coin was originally minted in England during the Tudor period, throughout the 16th century. The half sovereign was introduced in 1544, but the modern version of the coin we’ve come to know and cultivate today was first minted in 1817, and has been in continuous production ever since. Except for a brief hiatus during World War I and World War II.
