NGC graded 200th anniversary Half Sovereign from The Royal Mint. Like all proof coins in the 2017 Sovereign family, this Half Sovereign feature a special reverse design. It’s inspired by Benedetto Pistrucci’s original engraving for the earliest modern Sovereigns, issued in 1817. His interpretation of the legend of Saint George and the dragon has become a perennial presence on our coinage, instantly recognisable to collectors of these coins. 200 years on, The Royal Mint have restored two key original details. First, they’ve swapped out the Saint’s sword for a broken spear, as shown on the 1817 issues. They’ve also revived the garter - bearing the motto of the Order of the Garter - that encircled England’s patron saint on Pistrucci’s coins. These anniversary coins show Jody Clark’s fifth and final portrait of Queen Elizabeth II to the obverse, the fine detail of the effigy brought out magnificently with the coin’s fine proof finish. Like all Half Sovereigns, this example is struck in 3.99 grams of 22-carat gold. It has a diameter of 19.30 millimetres and a milled edge. Just 2,500 Half Sovereigns were issued in an individual presentation in 2017. This one has been independently graded as PF 70 Ultra Cameo by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. It comes sealed in its holder with the Royal Mint box of issue and certificate of authenticity included.
