For collectors or investors in gold, the gold 1/2 Sovereign is an extremely popular choice due to their convenient size, their beauty and their relatively low premiums over their actual gold weight when compared to other gold bullion coins of similar size. Recognized and traded all over the world, the gold 1/2 Sovereign has been minted by numerous countries, including England, South Africa and Australia.
The initial reverse type for gold 1/2 Sovereigns was a shield and crown design, augmented with a heraldic wreath. Following this design was a portrayal of St. George killing a dragon. This same design is still in use on British 1/2 gold sovereigns, although other reverse designs have also been used during the reigns of other rulers.
The 1/2 gold Sovereign coin has a gross weight of just under 4 grams, and has a purity of 22 karats (.91666 fine gold) which results in an actual fine gold content of .1177 ounces.
