Half-Sovereign 1888 to 1918 - Price Guide and values

Half-Sovereign 1888 to 1918 - Price Guide and values

Edward VII's short reign saw an abundance of gold sovereigns and half sovereigns from all three mints. The bald-headed likeness was the work of George William de Saules, who also designed the obverse of the first Australian coins of 1910. The designer of the George V Australian silver and bronze issues, Sir Edgar Bertram Mackennal, was selected to produce the obverse design for the George V sovereign and half sovereign coins. Officially half sovereigns were last struck in 1920, but the rare 1918 issue is the last date known. This is also true of the last years of the sovereign. It is thought that, although minted, many of these coins were not released and were later melted down.
