Issued for circulation for more than a century by the Royal Mint, the Gold 1/2 Sovereigns from Great Britain were recognized around the world as a stable form of currency used throughout Britain’s sprawling empire in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The Royal Mint issued the new Gold Great Britain Sovereigns starting in 1817. This followed Parliament’s movement known as the Great Recoinage that modernized and modified the coinage of Great Britain in the early 19th century. The reissue of Great Britain Sovereigns linked 19th-century British currency of the era to the Tudor Dynasty of the 15th century and the English Sovereign. Among the coins issued in 1817 was the Gold 1/2 Sovereign.

All of the Gold Great Britain 1/2 Sovereigns in this product listing are packaged in protective slabs by the NGC with an About Uncirculated 50+ grade. Coins in this condition have medium to full mint luster with extremely light or even simple trace signs of wear and tear on only the highest relief points of the design strike.

Silver.com offers these coins to you from random years in this listing. These coins come with random date marks that range from 1817 when the series launched until the 1930s when the 1/2 sovereign was issued for the final time in circulation. Since 1980, with the exception of 1981, the Royal Mint has issued 1/2 sovereigns as a gold bullion specimen.

On the obverse of Gold Great Britain 1/2 Sovereigns is an effigy of the reigning British monarch. Those featured on the Gold Great Britain 1/2 Sovereigns include King George III, King George IV, Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, King George V, and Queen Elizabeth II, though her effigy only appears on modern gold bullion coins with a date mark of 1980 and later.

The reverse side of Gold 1/2 Sovereigns features two possible designs, though one is far more prominent than the other. When the series launched in 1817, the Royal Mint used an image of St. George slaying a dragon from horseback as created by Benedetto Pistrucci. Through the first several decades of Queen Victoria’s reign, the coins had the Royal Arms of England instead.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
