The 1908 Melbourne Half Sovereign is a gold coin with a mintage of 405,034 that was minted in Australia. It has a weight of 3.99 grams and a gold purity of 91.67% (22 carat). The obverse (front) of the coin features the portrait of King Edward VII, while the reverse (back) depicts the Australian coat of arms with a kangaroo and an emu holding a shield.

The 1908 Half Sovereign is part of the larger British Gold Sovereign series, which began in 1817 and is still being minted today. These coins were originally used as currency, but are now primarily collected as numismatic items due to their historical and artistic value.

As a numismatic item, the value of a 1908 Half Sovereign can vary depending on factors such as its condition, rarity, and historical significance. At the time of writing (February 2023), a 1908 Half Sovereign in circulated condition can be purchased for around £280, while a high-quality uncirculated example could sell for several thousand pounds.
