The obverse of Great Britain Gold Sovereigns features an effigy of the reigning monarch that matches the date of issue. The very first 1/2 Sovereigns were issued late in the reign of King George III. Subsequent effigies featured George IV, William IV, Queen Victoria, Edward VI, George V, George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II. The most populous options were those for Queen Victoria, whose 19th-century reign was surpassed in duration by her great-granddaughter, Queen Elizabeth II. One important note, the 1/2 Sovereigns of Queen Victoria’s reign were circulation pieces, while those issued as of 1980 during Elizabeth II’s reign are bullion pieces.

On the reverse of Great Britain Gold 1/2 Sovereigns is one of two designs. Early coins issued during the reigns of William IV and Queen Victoria featured the Royal Arms, with Victoria’s coins bearing the Hanoverian Arms. All other coins have the 1817 design of St. George slaying the dragon as created by Benedetto Pistrucci.
