This Elizabeth II half Sovereign was minted in 2005. The coin features the fourth likeness of the Queen and shows a mature Elizabeth II, with her hair worn in a different style from the earlier portraits. The reverse of the coin changed for this year's mintage only, and shows a stylised version of the George & Dragon design present on other British coinage.
