Product Information

 

First struck in 1489, when Henry VII demanded a ‘new money of gold’, The Sovereign was a statement of political power. Revived in 1817, to help restore economic stability after the Napoleonic Wars, it has been struck for every subsequent monarch.

As Britain’s standing in the world grew, so did that of The Sovereign, earning it the moniker ‘chief coin of the world’. Today, more than 500 years after it first appeared, the coin still inspires awe and fascination and is struck to the same exacting specifications – a level of accuracy and precision that sets the bar for minting standards.

The Royal Mint's 2020 Half Sovereign marks the 200th anniversary of the death of George III, who was the first monarch to appear on the modern Sovereign. To mark this numismatic milestone, the coin features a special mint mark in the form of George III’s royal cypher, alongside Pistrucci’s classic St George and the dragon design.

Iconic St George Design

The coin’s reverse portrays Benedetto Pistrucci’s classic St George and the Dragon design. The obverse depicts Jody Clark's portrait of Her Majesty The Queen released on UK coins in 2015.

This 2020 Gold Half Sovereign is displayed in a befitting prestige timber case accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
