The Royal Mint produced these half sovereign sets called 'A Golden Finale Half Sovereign Set.' It contains a run of all the half sovereigns between and including 1900 to 1915.
All the half sovereigns in this set were struck in London at the Tower Hill Mint in the twentieth century, in the closing years before the cessation of production of the half sovereign for general circulation.
Each set comes with an information booklet and a certificate of authenticity. We are unsure of how many of these sets were produced but we currently have certificate number 127 in stock.
There are three different portraits in the set. There are two half sovereigns from 1900 and 1901 showing the portrait of Queen Victoria (Old Head), nine half sovereigns from Edward VII; 1902, 1903, 1904, 1905, 1906, 1907, 1908, 1909 and 1910. Then there are five half sovereigns of George V these are dated 1911, 1912, 1913, 1914, and 1915.
There is no grade assocaited with the coins in the set but the certificate says:
'All were initially produced for circulation and consequently their weight might have diminished slightly. Each coin however, has been specially selected for its splendid condition.'
The set contains half sovereigns from the only three monarchs who issued half sovereigns for general circulation. There are two half sovereigns of the Queen Victoria old head by Thomas Brock, nine half sovereigns of Edward VII by George W De Saulles and five half sovereigns of George V by Bertram Mackennal.
All coins show the classic St. George and the dragon reverse.
