Utterly complete, this set includes all five King Edward VII half sovereign dates struck at Australia’s Sydney Mint – 1902, 1903, 1906, 1908 & 1910.

All branches of the Royal Mint – including that domiciled in Sydney – were somewhat reluctant to produce the half sovereign due to the difficulty in striking the coin compared to the larger sovereign. This reluctance meant – in combination with other factors – that the mintages of Sydney Mint half sovereigns are very low.

In addition, as the lowest gold denomination, the half sovereign was subject to a high rate of circulation, meaning that a huge number were withdrawn due to wear and then re-coined by the Australian government. With so many half sovereigns also melted down for the intrinsic value by private profiteers, it is no surprise that all Sydney Mint half sovereigns are extremely scarce and highly sought after worldwide – including the five dates bearing the noble portrait of King Edward VII.

Representing a wonderful opportunity, this complete Edward VII half sovereign set is a must-have – but immediate action is essential. Only a few collections available – click add to cart now!
