From a limited edition presentation of just 2,465 coins, this 2008 proof Half Sovereign comes in its original Royal Mint presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. These 22-carat gold coins are among the most sought-after releases from the UK’s national mint with proof editions particularly prized for their fine finish, achieved via a time consuming process involving multiple strikes of hand prepared dies. A tribute to British craftsmanship, this 2008 coin features two celebrated designs. The obverse shows British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley’s definitive coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Rank-Broadley’s work was regarded as a highly accurate portrayal when it was introduced in 1998. His work continued to appear on UK coins, including Half Sovereigns until 2015. The reverse shows a much older numismatic design, created for the first milled Sovereigns, issued in the reign of King George III. Benedetto Pistrucci’s interpretation of the legend of St George and the dragon has become closely associated with Sovereigns and Half Sovereigns down the centuries and is instantly recognised by coin collectors. Like all Half Sovereigns, this one is composed of 3.99 grams of 91.67% pure gold (actual gold weight: 0.1177 troy ounces). An excellent investment and a beautiful addition to any collection.
