Rare half soveriegn
Unlike the full sovereign, which was struck in large numbers throughout the Empire for centuries, the half sovereign was traditionally regarded as an 'awkward' denomination and only produced when specifically requested by banks. The coin's subsequent rarity makes it highly prized by collectors worldwide.
This 1915 Sydney Mint Gold Half Sovereign in Extremely Fine to about Uncirculated condition is exceedingly rare in such superb quality. Adding to its appeal, the half sovereign was struck in the same year as the Gallipoli landing, during which the young Australian nation mourned the loss of more than 8,000 troops. The acquisition serves as a precious keepsake from a time of great significance for Australia and the world.
Benedetto Pistrucci's classic St George and the dragon design is featured on the coin's reverse, together with the year-date and The Sydney Mint's traditional 'S' mintmark. The obverse depicts the left-facing bust of King George V
