1980 Gold Coins
During 2010, we expect 1980 sovereigns and half sovereigns to be in demand for 30th birthday gifts, we can supply these from stock, and also a number of other gold coins dated 1980 from a variety of other countries.

Half Sovereigns
Proof Only
1980 half sovereigns were the first date of Elizabeth II sovereigns to be issued, and they were issued only in a limited edition, proof version.
Proofs are specially struck coins, with a highly polished mirror finished background, and the raised design in contrasting matt finish. They are issued as limited editions, and are more expensive than the ordinary uncirculated version.
1980 proof half sovereigns are contained in a plastic capsule within a Royal Mint leatherette wallet, and are accompanied by a certificate.
They are almost too good for use in jewellery, which would ruin their special finish in a very short space of time, but as there was no ordinary uncirculated version issued in 1980, the proof version is the only choice.
They are ideal for the person who would prefer to keep them as a memento or family heirloom.
We usually have some in stock.
You may wish to visit our 1980 Half Sovereigns page.

We also have 1980 Sovereigns available from stock. These come in two versions, proof and uncirculated. Please take a look at our 1980 Sovereigns page on our Gold Sovereigns website. Alternatively to order online use the link below:
