More Info

Edward VII half sovereigns were issued from 1902 - 1910. 

Edward VII portrait was engraved by George William De Saulles (DeS) on all half sovereigns.

There are slight differences between the reverse designs during the reign of King Edward VII. Half sovereigns from 1902-1904 differ slightly to those minted from 1904-1910.

The first lot of coins shows more space between the cloak of St. George and the edge of the coin. The latter lot of coins show the engravers initials B.P next to the date whereas the first half sovereigns minted show no initials.
