An impressive and very popular Coin Necklace, with two genuine Half Sovereigns, unusually a Victorian Shield design dated 1883 with the 'young head' of Queen Victoria together with a later period one dated 1893 depicting the Queen Victoria 'old head' design, both beautifully set in a 9 carat gold mount to protect them. The price includes a 9 carat gold Figaro Chain with Lobster catch, overall length 18”, which ideally complements the overall appearance.
This appealing Gold Necklace is very similar to the one you'll have seen worn by Holly Willoughby, said to be given to her by her mum, and definitely one of her favourites.
* The Half Sovereign is a British coin and was introduced originally in 1544, survived for 60 years and then was discontinued until 1817 when the modern half-sovereign was introduced. Traditionally made from 22ct gold the coin has the monarch’s head on one side and the iconic image of Saint George slaying the Dragon on the reverse. The face value of a Half Sovereign is half that of a full Sovereign, a value equal to half a pound sterling (50p), however the last year when the half gold coin was issued for normal circulation was in 1926 and its present value is now many times more than its face value.
