Elizabeth II Half Sovereigns

The reign of Elizabeth (1952 – ), is long enough to prompt five half
sovereign distinctive portraits thus far. These depict her as a young woman on
her ascension to the throne, as a more regal young ruler in 1974, as an
confident monarch in 1985 and as an elderly ruler in 1998.  The 1989 single
year issue depicts the en robed monarch seated on a throne. The reverse is the
scene of St. George slaying the dragon, for 1989 it was a Tudor Rose, for 2002 a
shield motif and for 2005 a "Harry Potter" type of St George.
