Limited edition 22-carat gold proof Half Sovereign coin from The Royal Mint, issued to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III. His Majesty was crowned at Westminster Abbey on 6 May 2023. This official UK Half Sovereign was struck as part of a collection designed to commemorate this remarkable royal occasion. You'll recognise the attractive St George and the dragon motif seen on the reverse. Created by Italian artist Benedetto Pistrucci in 1817, it's been a perennial presence on Sovereigns and Half Sovereigns over the last two centuries. The obverse of this 2023 coin is, however, a one-off, authorised only for use on Royal Mint coronation coins. It shows King Charles facing left, wearing the Tudor Crown and is the work of British sculptor Martin Jennings. This Half Sovereign is struck in 3.99 grams of 22-carat gold with a diameter of 19.30 millimetres, measured from milled edge to milled edge. Our brand new 2023 coronation Half Sovereigns are offered in their original presentation packaging with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.

What Are Proof Half Sovereigns?

The first Half Sovereigns were minted by the Tudor monarchs. Later, the name was revived for a new gold coin, introduced in 1817 following a major overhaul of British coinage. They were minted for more than a century, only falling out of production and circulation after the First World War.

Half Sovereigns are struck in 3.994 grams of 22-carat gold.

They have a diameter of 19.30 and contain .1176 troy ounces of pure gold. Nominally, Half Sovereigns have a value of half a Pound sterling though their precious metal content means they are worth significantly more.

Proof Half Sovereigns began to be minted regularly in the 1980s, joining full Sovereigns as part of The Royal Mint's most prestigious annual issue. These coins are available in sets and individually, minted in smaller numbers than larger 'full' Sovereigns which makes them particularly collectable.
