1975 Half Sovereigns Don't Exist

Every day people ask us for coins which do not exist, including 1975 half sovereigns.
Half sovereigns were not issued in every year, and this is one date for which none were issued.
No full sovereigns were minted in 1975 either, Krugerrands were not introduced until 1967, indeed very few countries issued any gold coins in 1975, however we can tell you what alternatives exist.

Why Not?
This is often the next question we get asked. It would be better to ask the Royal Mint, but we can tell you that coins are only produced when they are needed. The last date of half sovereign struck by the Royal Mint for circulation was 1915, although some of the branch mints continued striking them until 1926.
It was not until 1982 that the Royal Mint started to strike and issue half sovereigns again to supply demand for bullion coins. It now seems likely that half sovereigns will continue to be issued yearly.

Proof Half Sovereigns
Since 1980, the Royal Mint has issued half sovereigns in proof grade, for sale to collectors. Proofs are coins which are specially struck with a very high standard of finish. These are only issued in limited quantities, and are more expensive than ordinary bullion or circulation type coins. Obviously this is of no interest if you are looking for a 1975 half sovereign.

Year of the Rabbit
The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on a 12 year cycle, each year in the cycle is associated with a different animal.
The Perth Mint in Australia produces a series of Chinese Lunar Calendar coins, in gold and silver, starting in 1996. We do occasionally manage to buy some of the older years, although they do tend to be quite hard to source.
1975 is the Chinese lunar calendar "year of the rabbit". If you can't see any 1975 gold coin you like, you may wish to look at our 1999 Year of the Rabbit page.
