1999 Sovereigns

1999 half sovereigns were issued only in a limited edition, proof version. There were no ordinary uncirculated version issued in that year, in fact during the reign of Elizabeth II, non-proof half sovereigns were only issued in 1982, and then each year from 2000.

Proof Sovereigns

Proofs are specially struck coins, with a highly polished mirror finished background, and the raised design in contrasting matt finish. They are issued as limited editions, and are more expensive than the ordinary uncirculated version.

1999 proof half sovereigns are contained in a plastic capsule within a Royal Mint leather covered box, and are accompanied by a certificate. They are almost too good for use in jewellery, which would ruin their special finish in a very short space of time, but as there was no ordinary uncirculated version issued in 1999, the proof version is the only choice. They are ideal for the person who would prefer to keep them as a memento or family heirloom.

Obverse

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. 

Reverse

The reverse was designed by Benedetto Pistrucci and shows St. George slaying the dragon.
