2008 Half Sovereigns - St. George & Dragon
After the special one-year-only design in 2005, half sovereigns and sovereigns reverted to the traditional reverse design of St. George slaying the dragon.
Buying from us you also get the benefit of buying from expert professional numismatists who have been in the business for over 40 years, while we appreciate the Royal Mint have existed for longer, we know more about sovereigns and half sovereigns than they do!
The reverse dies for sovereigns, half sovereigns, double sovereigns and quintuple sovereigns were remastered and recut in 2007. See our 2007 sovereigns page of our Gold Sovereigns website for more information.
For 2008, the issue limit is expected to be set at a maximum of 75,000. This is the same as for 2005.
The issue limit for the proof versions is expected to be 5,000.
