The Half-Sovereign 2002
In 2002, the nation mourned the death of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and a million people lined the streets as she was laid to rest at Westminster Abbey. Her Late Majesty The Queen celebrated her Golden Jubilee that same year, with a series of special events journeying the length and breadth of the United Kingdom and all over the Commonwealth; huge crowds gathered at each official engagement, eager to wish her well. Revisit those glorious celebrations with this stunning gold Half-Sovereign featuring a magnificent shield design on the reverse, unusual for The Half-Sovereign which normally displays St George and the dragon.
