In 1981 the late Princess Diana married Prince Charles, so in the coin trade this coin has
always been known as the Charles & Diana Sovereign. You have H.M. Queen Elizabeth II
on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side.
Each coin is in gleaming Proof condition, the finest grade that you can get. They are struck
by the Royal Mint in 22ct Gold and come in their original case. Unfortunately on some of the
cases there was a label attached to the case and part of it might still be adhering, but the coins
themselves are in perfect Proof condition.
Today the Royal Mint is charging £425.00 for this 1981 Proof Sovereign in the original case.
The Half Sovereign of 2005 has mintage of 30,299. The later coins do not have mintage figures
We are offering the 2005 issue Half Sovereign struck in 22ct Gold weigh about
4 grams and in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Remember it is a one year only type.
