2017 Gold Proof Half Sovereign 200th Anniversary

SVH17 2017 Gold Proof Half Sovereign 200th Anniversary Boxed
from
£450.00
(VAT Exempt)
22-carat gold 2017 200th Anniversary Half Sovereign from The Royal Mint with a fine, proof finish. Intended for collectors, proof coins are struck multiple times with hand-prepared dies, producing mirrored surfaces and frosted devices. These premium coins are time-consuming to produce so only limited numbers are offered. Just 2,500 proof Half Sovereigns were authorised for issue by The Royal Mint in this individual presentation. This 2017 proof Half Sovereign is offered in its original packaging from the UK’s national mint which comprises maroon and black card outer boxes containing a glossy wood display case. The coin itself is sealed in a capsule, preserving the proof finish. Coins in the 2017 proof Sovereign family feature a special reverse design, intended as a tribute to the long history of these 22-carat gold coins. The instantly recognisable St George and the dragon design by Benedetto Pistrucci is encircled by a stylised garter, as featured on the first modern Sovereigns, struck in the early 19th century. This historic design is paired with Jody Clark’s fifth and final definitive coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The date here is on the obverse, rather than the reverse. Like other Half Sovereigns, this coin is struck in 3.99 grams of 916.7 fine gold. VAT and Capital Gains Tax exempt. This desirable pre-owned UK coin is available while stocks last.
