I need help identifying a coin!!

#1 Unread post by shirley.powell » Thu May 07, 2015 8:32 pm

I have a 1913 half sovereignty from 1913 with George on a horse on the back and queen victoria on the front. I cannot find this combination anywhere on the Internet.

We always recommend posting images of both sides and of the entire coin.

It looks like a sovereign (or half sovereign), but it is the wrong metal (it looks silver) and dated in a year that would not be used for Queen Victoria.
1901 is the last date this coin would have been made and it would have been gold.

Basically, I couldn't find one either. I'll look again tomorrow.
