Peter Vernon sent in this gold coin on behalf of a detecting colleague, who wanted to know what it might be worth.
The coin is a half sovereign of Victoria, which has on the obverse the jubilee head of the queen, with no initials below. On the reverse is a crowned shield of arms with the date, 18 92, at the base.
In the Standard Catalogue half sovereigns of this type are listed as number 3869D.
In the obverse field there are several small nicks and on the reverse a graze at the bottom edge and a scrape on the shield but the coin is otherwise in good VF condition. It’s not a particularly scarce coin so in its present state of preservation my price range would be £170 to £190.
