We bought a nice group of the scarce 2004 Half Sovereigns in Proof condition. They are still sealed in the Royal Mint packaging. They come in the original Royal Mint case with the Royal Mint certificate. These are struck in Proof 22ct Gold and weigh about 4 grams. Today the Royal Mint wants £250.00 for a Half Sovereign in proof. These are older but still in their original Royal Mint packaging and at an attractive price.
Of all the modern British gold on the market, the most underappreciated is the Queen Elizabeth II Half Sovereign in Uncirculated. Yes, we said Uncirculated and not Proof. The Proof coins were all saved by collectors, the Brilliant Uncirculated coins were just not put away. We have bought a nice group of Brilliant Uncirculated examples. Try and find them elsewhere and you will see what we mean about them being underappreciated and not saved for collectors. Each coin is struck in 22ct Gold by the Royal Mint and is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, but supplies are limited.
There were 3 major types of Queen Victoria Half Sovereigns issued, Young Head, Jubilee Head and Old Head. The Half Sovereign is much scarcer than the full Sovereign. Both are struck in 22ct by the Royal Mint. It is just that the Half Sovereign was the least expensive Gold coin struck at the time. You have the veiled or Old Head portrait of H. M. Queen Victoria on one side and St. George and the dragon on the other side. These are actual gold coins that were used in day today transactions. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and were minted between 1893-1901. These are important type coins and of course the Half Sovereign is a scarce denomination. Dates will be of our choice, but supplies are limited.
