The Royal Mint's 2018 Half-Sovereign marks the 65th anniversary of the Queen's coronation.
The Sovereign's Design
The classic obverse design features St George slaying the dragon, and includes a special 2018 mint mark.
The mark, known as the "65 Crown" Privy Mark, is an intricate crown design created using the number 65. This is a reference to the 65 years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth in 2018, and is available for this year only.
This highly exclusive mark is the first sapphire coronation anniversary mint mark to be struck on an official UK coin.
The coin is struck in Proof quality gold, and guaranteed by The Royal Mint. The mint's state-of-the-art techniques ensure that every detail of Benedetto Pistrucci’s original design is captured in beautiful, crisp detail.
This gold Half-Sovereign is presented in a wooden case, perfect for securely housing and displaying your treasure.
The Sovereign - a royal coin
As its name suggests, the Sovereign has always been associated with British royalty.
First struck in 1489 by King Henry VII, over 500 years later it remains a classic symbol of our monarchy. Over the past 200 years it has featured every one of Britain's kings and queens, making it an irreplacable piece of British numismatic heritage, and a must-have for collectors.
