Queen Victoria 1889 HALF SOVEREIGN Sydney Mint

Mc# 35, S# 3871b

about Unc / PCGS AU 58

Obverse: Jubilee Head

Reverse: Coronate shield within wreath mintmark below.

Incredibly rare in this condition.

The 1889 Sydney is yet another of Australia's Jubilee Head half sovereigns that is regarded as being rare in mint state.

This confirms that the half sovereign truly was used as a medium of exchange in Australia throughout the late 1800's, as opposed to the sovereign, that was just as often used as a store of value.

Just one example (MS 60) has been graded finer than this coin by PCGS to date, and they've graded only 17 examples in total.
