British Royal Mint (1/2 Sovereign Coins)
British Royal Mint Gold 1/2 Sovereign Coins Since 650, coins have been minted in Great Britain, at that time in several mints across the country. Around 1540, the remaining mints closed and the Royal Mint was the only mint normally in operation. In 1663, striking coins by hand was finally abandoned with the introduction of screw presses and horse-drawn rolling mills!
It is clear that the Royal Mint has a long history of producing circulating coinage for Great Britain, and here you can find many examples of these coins! Among the products below, you will find a variety of conditions and designs, featuring several different monarchs!
