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.
In 1981 the late Princess Diana married Prince Charles, so in the coin trade this coin has always been known as the Charles & Diana Sovereign. You have H.M. Queen Elizabeth II on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. Each coin is in gleaming Proof condition, the finest grade that you can get. They are struck by the Royal Mint in 22ct Gold and come in their original case. Unfortunately on some of the cases there was a label attached to the case and part of it might still be adhering, but the coins themselves are in perfect Proof condition. Today the Royal Mint is charging £425.00 for this 1981 Proof Sovereign in the original case.
Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne in 1952 and since then there have been five different busts of her on the Gold Sovereign. A gold sovereign is struck in 22ct gold and weighs about 8 grams. No gold coins were struck for ‘circulation’ until 1967. The bust design offered here is the slightly more mature Young Head by Arnold Machin. Her Majesty is our longest serving Monarch and she is entitled to have the design of her bust changed as she matures with age. All of the coins are struck in 22ct gold all are in Brilliant Uncirculated. Dates will be of our choice.
Gold Sovereign from Queen Elizabeth II featuring Rank-Broadley portrait. The coins are selected and many are well above average. All coins are original and genuine and were struck in 22ct (916 2/3rd fine gold).
