2023 UK Gold Coronation Half Sovereign Coin

Buy these coins special release coins while you can because the production run will be from July 2023 – Dec 2023 only. It will thereby be replaced by the standard 2024 Sovereign which will switch back to the standard uncrowned portrait of King Charles III.

The rear design reverts to the classic George slaying the Dragon on the coin’s rear, after the 2022’s commemorative Coat of Arms reverse.

This is a brand new bullion finish coin, issued by the Royal Mint. Coins will be packaged loose for small quantities and come in Royal Mint tubes for orders of 25 and more.

The coins are issued without expensive presentation boxes to maximize the amount of gold for your money. You may wish to consider the accompanying Half Sovereign coin capsules.


Coin design and details

The 2023 edition will contain 3.994 grams of 22 carat gold as with previous editions.

The obverse displays an updated special-edition portrait of King Charles III wearing his coronation crown, depicted by British sculptor Martin Jennings.

The rear of the Sovereign displays the familiar Benedetto Pistrucci depiction of St George slaying a dragon.

Why buy the 2023 Gold Coronation Half Sovereign from Physical Gold

Premiums for these coins have returned to the lower levels of previous Half Sovereigns, from the inflated price of the 2022 memorial Half Sovereign. That means buyers can obtain these special edition Coronation Sovereigns without having to pay the usual ‘limited issue’ premium. With mintage limited to a shorter 6-month run and the unique coronation portrait, it’s likely that these coins will command a healthy collector’s premium in years to come.
