Edward VII Half Sovereigns

King Edward VII the son of Queen Victoria lived from 09.11.1841 until
06.05.1910 when he died from a heart attack. He took a great interest in foreign
policy and travelled a great deal to help and promote better international
understanding.

Edward VII half gold sovereigns coins were made between 1902-1910. All King
Edward VII sovereigns depicted the same portrait with the initials “De
S”  in very small text just bellow the neck. Theses stand for George
William De Saulles who designed the portrait showing King Edward without his
crown. BRITT OMN is also included in the title to summarize the now growing
British Empire. On the reverse side the standard scene is of St George slaying
the dragon on both the full and half sovereigns.

A very desirable Sovereign coin which will add weight to any collection. Due
to the age of this half sovereign make sure you take particular notice
of the conduction of the coin. If you are new to buying gold sovereigns make
sure you buy from a trusted seller that has graded the coins correctly as this
can greatly influence the price.
