These gold half Sovereigns display the portrait of King Edward VII and on the reverse, Benedetto Pistrucci's design of St. George and the Dragon. King Edward ruled for only a short time, just eight years. He was the first monarch that embraced the idea of Royal public appearances and was noted by J.B. Priestly as being "the King England has known since the earlier 1660s". He was also colloquially known as the "peacemaker".
These half Sovereigns were produced in the years between 1902 and 1910.
