The 2008 gold half sovereign bullion coin. This half sovereign is also available in a proof finish.
See the rest of the 2008 Sovereign Collection.
After the special one-year-only design in 2005, half sovereigns and sovereigns reverted to the traditional reverse design of St. George slaying the dragon.
As always we are offering the proof half sovereigns at a significant discount from the official Royal Mint issue price.
For 2008, the issue limit is expected to be set at a maximum of 75,000. This is the same as for 2005.
The obverse shows the fourth definitive UK coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley, his initials IRB are below the truncated neck. This effigy appeared on coins from 1998 until 2015.
The reverse features the Benedetto Pistrucci depiction of St. George slaying the dragon. This was slightly changed in 2007 when the dies were re-engraved.
