Henry VIII Half Sovereign

This fantastic Henry VIII Half Sovereign has been reproduced and hand-finished, plated in real gold, to the original design to look as authentic as possible.

Gold sovereigns worth one pound sterling were introduced by old King Henry VII in 1489. Henry VIII then introduced this, the half sovereign worth ten shillings or 120 pence. This was a reflection of a trend for large gold coins across Europe; they were popular amongst the rich elite because they displayed wealth and status.

A coin like this would not have been found under a matress of a farm worker or in the pocket of your average labourer. This was a day's pay for a top lawyer. A lot of money in one coin!

This faithfully reproduced coin comes attached to an information card in a protective plastic wallet.
