In 2012 the nation had plenty to celebrate. The world watched as the United Kingdom impressed on the international stage, hosting the London 2012 Olympic Games. Throughout the year, a programme of events, from a flotilla to a concert on The Mall, celebrated Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
This 22 carat gold Half-Sovereign was struck in the year of the Diamond Jubilee and is dated 2012. The reverse features a rare departure from Pistrucci's classic, with a modern St George and the dragon design by Paul Day, while the obverse bears the fourth definitive coinage portrait of The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.
