The Half-Sovereign 1985

In 1985, millions dug deep for the musical fundraising event, 'Live Aid', for the musical fundraising event 'Live Aid' and we caught our first glimpses of footage of the Titanic from its watery grave, 73 years after it sank. A new portrait of The Queen by Raphael Maklouf was introduced to the United Kingdom's coinage and it is that very effigy that adorns the obverse of this original Half-Sovereign, struck in 1985. This authentic coin has the classic St George and the dragon on its reverse and is in its original packaging - the perfect nostalgic gift for someone with special memories of 1985, or a worthy addition to any collection.
