The commemorative 2016 Australia Half Sovereign portrays St Edwards crown, a laurel wreath and the word AUSTRALIA, historic elements of Leonard Charles Wyon’s original Type I reverse. The modern tribute also includes the inscriptions PERTH MINT and HALF SOVEREIGN.

Australian sovereigns were minted from 1855 until 1931. The half sovereign, which was also first minted in 1855, was discontinued much earlier than the sovereign, in 1918. Half sovereigns were minted in smaller numbers than sovereigns, and there were many years when they were not struck at all.
