Overview

The half sovereign gold coin was not struck between 1888 to 1889 in an attempt to steer the public towards silver coin. This coin marks the first edition of half sovereign gold coins follow the hiatus. The Gold Half Sovereign Victoria Jubilee Head has one of the most recognizable images of Queen Victoria. This collection was produced at the London Mint, denoted by the lack of mint mark below the shield. 

Sovereigns featuring a shield reverse are more rare than their St. George counterparts. This is because they were the first to be removed from circulation following the reverse redesign. Remaining coins fetch a high premium due to their scarcity.

Highlights

  • Consisting of 9167 (22k) gold
  • Obverse: Jubilee design of Queen Victoria
  • Reverse: Crowned, quartered, shield of arms
