Great Britain was one of the first countries to produce gold coins and these were used all over the world as the British Empire expanded. The last gold half-sovereign coin of these early days was minted in 1604. They were called ‘sovereign coins’ because they had the image of the sovereign leader of the British Empire at that time. 


Half sovereign coins returned in 1817 by legislation, the Great Recoinage Act of 1816. Thus began a 100-year run where these coins were minted every year. This run ended in 1917. 1980 saw the return of these coins into annual production and they are still made today. 


On the reverse of these sovereign coins is the image of St. George on horseback going to battle a dragon. This design was created by Benedetto Pistrucci in 1817. Also on this side is the year of the issue. 


Each sovereign coin has the image of the ‘sovereign’, the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom on the obverse side of the coin. Past rulers include King Edward VII, King George V, and Queen Victoria. All coins since 1957 have the image of Queen Elizabeth. Since then, there have been three versions of her right-profile portrait.

    disappointed picture early 1900’s and then what’s sent was 2000’s…should be clear that most likely going to get current century coin…I ordered a franc and it was 1855 what I expected here.

  2. Russell Shaw (verified owner)

    This is a good deal for random half Sovereigns, even if you get a regular plain one. I got a fantastic coin, way better than I expected. Whoever filled my order was in a good mood! Thanks, Hero !!!
