Collectors tend to be structured in their approach to collecting and for that reason the very first year of a design is popular. So too is the final year of a design.

This 1893 Half Sovereign struck at the Melbourne Mint represents the very last year that both the Jubilee and the Shield designs appeared on Australia’s half sovereigns. From an historical perspective therefore it is a truly significant piece.

Obviously cherished in intervening years, this half sovereign is presented in a superb state of preservation, with full original colour and smooth fields. Incredibly, this 1893 Half Sovereign retains the sheen and sparkle of a newly minted coin.

A remarkable piece of Australia’s currency history at a truly affordable price.
