Australia 1856 Sydney Half Sovereign G Details Grade

Render unto Caesar, that which is Caesar’s. Forgive the numismatic pun but I suspect the owner of this coin decided to mix church and state. Nonetheless, an opportunity to hold this rare half sovereign in the hand at a very reasonable price.

Below is a slabbed and graded half sovereign of the same date. But it’s not the same coin! Go on, have a read about the Type 2 Sydney Mint reverse. (click on the image)
