Product Description

Part of the wider British gold coin family the gold half sovereign was first produced in 1544. This early version of the coin was then discontinued in 1604 until 1817 when what is now referred to as a 'modern' gold half sovereign was introduced. Production was restarted in 1980 and the gold half sovereign whose value was equivalent to 10 Shillings sat nicely between the gold sovereign (20 shillings) and the silver crown (5 shillings). Currently and since 2000 both bullion grade and proof gold half sovereigns have been in production by the Royal Mint. The half gold sovereign is a great edition to any sovereign collection, struck in 22ct gold and weighing 3.984g. They also considered legal tender and benefit from Capital Gains Tax (CGT Exempt) status – a great coin to purchase when investing in gold.
