The Queen Victoria 'Old Head' Solid Gold Half Sovereign

  Description    Specifications    Delivery  


The Queen Victoria ‘Old Head’ Solid Gold Half Sovereign

The last ever Gold Half Sovereign of Victoria's incredible reign

  • Struck in Solid 22-Carat Gold over 115 years ago
  • Features the famous ‘Old Head’ portrait
  • Displayed in a luxury Presentation Case 

Highly sought-after in the year we celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth, the original ‘Old Head’ Solid Gold Half Sovereign was struck over a century ago by The Royal Mint in Solid 22-Carat Gold. It includes the final coinage portrait of Victoria’s entire reign which was issued in 1893 and nicknamed the ‘Old’ or 'Veiled Head’ as it depicted our second longest-reigning monarch in the mourning veil she habitually wore following the sudden death of her husband Prince Albert. Italian engraver Benedetto Pistrucci's magnificent depiction of St George and the Dragon features on the reverse. Due to difficulty sourcing genuine Queen Victoria ‘Old Head’ Gold Half Sovereigns in volume on today’s secondary market, only 495 are available from The Jubilee Mint. Complete with a luxury Presentation Case and Certificate of Authenticity.

The limited edition presentation relates only to the Sovereign as presented in our packaging.
