2009 Elizabeth II Gold Proof Half Sovereign

SVH09 2009 Elizabeth II Gold Proof Half Sovereign Boxed
from
£265.00
(VAT Exempt)
22-carat gold proof 2009 Half Sovereign from The Royal Mint. This coin comes from a limited edition of just 2,996 coins issued in this presentation by The Royal Mint and is offered in its Mint-issue presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed. Proof coins like this one are struck multiple times with hand prepared dies, resulting in a superior finish, protected by the original capsule. Like all Half Sovereigns, this 2009 proof edition is struck in 3.99 grams of 916.7 gold. That equates to an actual gold weight of 3.66 grams or 0.1177. The gold content of these coins means that we can offer them free from VAT while their status as UK legal tender means they’re exempt from Capital Gains Tax. The obverse of this coin shows Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, facing right and wearing the Girls OF Great Britain And Ireland Tiara. The reverse shows Benedetto Pistrucci’s classic St George and the dragon design, created for the first modern Sovereign, issued in 1817. Instantly-recognisable to coin collectors, this engraving was inspired by the central legend, associated with England’s patron saint. In the year this design was modified a little, reverting to the variant used in 1893 with reduced ground below the design, removing the artists initials. A great addition to any proof Sovereign collection.
