The UK’s 500th Anniversary 1989 Gold Proof Half Sovereign  

Arguably the most coveted Half Sovereign of Her Majesty’s reign 

  • Struck in Solid 22-Carat Gold by The Royal Mint
  • Includes TWO ONE-YEAR-ONLY designs
  • Strictly limited availability

Struck in Solid 22-Carat Gold to the highest Proof finish, the UK’s official 1989 Half Sovereign is among the most sought-after of the Queen’s entire reign. This is because it marks the historic 500th Anniversary of the first ever Sovereign of 1489 and features not just one, but two ONE-YEAR-ONLY designs for the first and only time since our longest-reigning monarch came to the throne. Designed entirely by renowned British sculptor Bernard Sindall, who drew his inspiration from the original 1489 coin, this coveted edition depicts on its reverse a royal shield upon a beautiful double Tudor rose, while an unusual forward-facing portrait of Her Majesty appears on the obverse. Due to very high demand on the secondary market, The Jubilee Mint has only a very limited number available. Comes complete with a luxury Presentation Case and Certificate of Authenticity.
