2002 Half Sovereigns

  • Half Sovereigns - New Golden Jubilee Design
    This year's half sovereigns have a shield reverse. This is a special design for the Queen's Golden Jubilee, and will only be used for this one single year.

  • Proofs - In Stock Now!
    For year 2002, the proofs were issued in January instead of April, and the Uncirculated or bullion issue has been re-scheduled from January to February, so should be available very soon. We are expecting to receive our first delivery on Tuesday 19th February.

  • Shield Reverse
    On half sovereigns, the shield reverse was last used for Queen Victoria from 1838 to 1893 inclusive. For full sovereigns it was changed in 1887, which was Victoria's golden jubilee year. It is perhaps fitting, then, that the Royal Mint have chosen not only to change the half sovereign design for our own queen's golden jubilee, but also to revert back to the shield design.

  • Advance Orders
    As in other recent years, we placed a large advance order for both proof and uncirculated half sovereigns. We are still inviting orders at our special advance order prices, which are below the official issue prices.

  • Issue Limits
    For 2002, the issue limit has been set at a maximum of 100,000 of the uncirculated version, and only 12,500 of the proofs. This is the same as for 2001, despite the fact that the Golden Jubilee celebration will make this new issue even more popular.

  • 2002 Advance Order Prices
    Our advance order prices for 2002 are currently as follows. Gold bullion prices may affect the final official pricing.

  • Year 2002 Gold Half Sovereigns Two Versions:-
    • Bullion (Uncirculated) Version
      This is only the fourth date of Elizabeth II half sovereign produced in a "bullion" version, and the only single-year design type produced in the bullion version. We expect demand to be high. The issue limit is only the same as for last year which was not a special date or design.
    • Proofs
      The proofs have a lower issue limit at only 12,500 pieces, the same as for last year. We expect them to sell out.
