World’s First New Zealand Gold Sovereigns

First struck more than 200 years ago, the British Gold Sovereign is one of the most widely recognized coins in the world. In its long and celebrated history, the Sovereign has been struck in Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, India and Canada. Now, in 2019 on the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth, the world’s first-ever New Zealand Gold Sovereigns are being issued!

In this offer you can get the Gold Half Sovereign as created by celebrated designer Natanya van Niekerk, the creative genius who won numerous international coin awards for her work on the South African Mint’s acclaimed Natura series. The design pays homage to a commemorative medal issued during the early part of Victoria’s reign and shows an effigy of Queen Victoria from her younger years, wearing a tiara. The effigy is framed with a spiral-shaped koru design representing the royal generations past, present and future. A lattice stained-glass effect has also been incorporated into the design to symbolize the vast array of territories that Queen Victoria reigned over when the British Empire was at the height of its power.

Your 2019 New Zealand Gold Half comes in gorgeous Proof condition, meaning it was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. Since a limited edition of just 2,019 of these fabulous coins have been struck, the demand is sure to exceed supply.
