Gold Half Sovereigns

1893 Royal Mint Proof

22 Carat Gold

Sir Thomas Brock’s popular Veiled Head portrait captures many of the values so closely attributed to Queen Victoria and her citizens of the dawn of the 20th century – dignity, steadfast loyalty and sacrifice. Victoria’s reign was the longest in the history of the British royal family, we can be certain that the memory of her beauty and character would have been kept alive for many years by the coins struck bearing her portrait.
