The Half Sovereign 2017 Coin Quality

In 1817 The Sovereign was bought back, setting the standard that defined a currency. 2 centuries on, the gold coin is still the most firmly specified coin worldwide-- a worldwide traded bullion coin and desired collectable coin.
 
The Half-Sovereign was revived in addition to The Sovereign in 1817. It was not produced for much of the 1900s, a casualty of the First World War, but it was reintroduced in 1980 and has been minted practically every year after that. This special Half-Sovereign features Benedetto Pistrucci's original garter style, with complete Old French inscription and border, for the very first time ever.
 
The coin is available in a wooden case together with a booklet on the story of The Sovereign's revival, its relate to the Gold Standard and contains an excerpt from Dr Kevin Clancy's book A History of The Sovereign: Chief Coin of the World, a Royal Mint Museum Publication.
