An irresistible opportunity to create a comprehensive collection in one fell swoop, we are delighted to present the Complete Sydney Mint Half Sovereign 13-Coin Set!

All-encompassing, this spectacular Australian gold coin collection includes an example of every half sovereign date issued by the Sydney Mint from the start of the Queen Victoria Veiled Head Series in 1893 until the last was struck, in 1916. This includes three Queen Victoria dates (1893, 1897 & 1900), five Edward VII dates (1902, 1903, 1906, 1908 & 1910) and five George V dates (1911, 1912, 1914, 1915 & 1916).

With the series defined by very low mintages – the average annual mintage was a mere 343,000 – and high circulation rates, Sydney Mint Half Sovereigns are scarce in any grade. The scarcity is exacerbated by the fact that so many half sovereigns have been melted down for the intrinsic value by private profiteers in the 100+ years since last struck.

With individual dates hard to track down, the 1893-1916 Sydney Mint Half Sovereign Set is seldom seen as a complete collection – as here. A lavish presentation, the thirteen half sovereign dates are united within the plush confines of a lavish, lockable black timber case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

An eminently prestigious acquisition for any collector, we have only three of these extremely scarce sets available. Do not delay your order. Click add to cart now!
