Order your 'Into the Dragon’s Lair’ Half Sovereign for just £399!

The gold sovereign is one of the most recognisable gold coins in the world. Originally struck by the Tudor monarchs to showcase their power and wealth, this beautiful coin has, since 1817, been struck to the same 22-carat gold specification which hasn't changed in over two hundred years. 

The first modern sovereign struck in 1817 depicted Saint George and the Dragon sculpted by the Italian engraver Benedetto Pistrucci. His neo-classical masterwork has proved to be enduringly popular and still appears on many sovereigns struck today. 

Benedetto’s great-great-great niece Angela Pistrucci is an acclaimed international artist who studied her craft at the highly prestigious Italian Mint in Rome. In 2019, we once again worked with Angela to produce another fresh interpretation of the most famous fight scene in numismatic history and to create this special Museum Edition.

Struck to a Proof quality, your solid Gold half sovereign will be supplied in a clear protective capsule to protect it from fingerprints and accidental damage. The quality and the craftsmanship of the coin is further enhanced by being displayed in an elegant presentation case and supplied with an informative Certificate of Authenticity to confirm its provenance.   

Rest assured that you have no further commitments and your purchase is protected by The London Mint Office 14 day “no quibble” guarantee. You have no further obligations.
