A celebratory Half-Sovereign for Queen Victorias Golden Jubilee

Just like the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign was a cause for national celebration. In 1887, the year of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, the 'Jubilee Head' portrait was introduced, created by sculptor Edgar Boehm.

This famous portrait can be found on the obverse of this 22 carat gold Half-Sovereign. The reverse features a departure from the familiar St George and the dragon design, with a crowned shield of the Royal Arms by Jean Baptiste Merlen.
