A complete collection!

A comprehensive collection, this prestigious presentation represents a sweeping overview of Australia’s historic Half Sovereign Series. Seldom seen in such a ‘complete’ configuration, the set comprises an example of all SEVEN Australian Half Sovereign types issued from 1855 to 1918!

Each set features the…

  • Queen Victoria 1855-56 Sydney Mint Half Sovereign Type I (graded Good to Very Good)
  • Queen Victoria 1857-66 Sydney Mint Type II (Very Good to Fine)
  • Queen Victoria 1871-87 Young Head (Fine)
  • Queen Victoria 1887-93 Jubilee (Fine to Very Fine)
  • Queen Victoria 1893-1900 Veiled Head (Fine to Very Fine)
  • King Edward VII 1902-10 (Fine to Very Fine), and
  • King George V 1911-18 (Extremely Fine to about Uncirculated).

Very scarce today…

Half Sovereigns are generally scarce to rare. This is largely due to the low mintages, with approximately one Half Sovereign struck for every ten Sovereigns. When you also consider that, as a lower denomination, Half Sovereigns had a much higher circulation rate, it’s no surprise that they are tough-to-find today. The scarcity is exacerbated by the number of coins melted for the gold over the years.

Just two complete sets available!

As a result of the recognised scarcity of this historic Australian 22-carat gold coin, the 1855-1918 Australian Gold Half Sovereign Type Set is rarely offered – making this opportunity very important indeed. A collector acquisition ‘par excellence’, we have two complete 7-coin sets available – each housed within a lavish, lockable timber case with Certificates of Authenticity. Add to cart now!
