Picture of Victoria, Shilling Extremely Fine, 1887

Victoria, Shilling Extremely Fine, 1887

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 shilling in extremely fine grade.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1956

Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1956

In 1956 the Royal Mint issued the last Farthing ever! I guess that it was too low of a denomination to be of any use. We have a nice small group of Brilliant Uncirculated 1956 Queen Elizabeth II Farthings. These are the last Farthing to ever be struck. The Mint didn’t make a lot of them and they are the most difficult date of Queen Elizabeth II to find. Get them while you can, remember there were 4 to a Penny and 960 to the pound. These are now 63 years old and in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Picture of George VI, Florin 1945 Uncirculated

George VI, Florin 1945 Uncirculated

The Florin as a denomination was first issued only in 1848, under Queen Victoria. This 1945 Silver Florin is the penultimate year of issue of any Florin in Silver and as such we think that it is a very important coin for your collection. It was struck under King George VI. The coins on offer are in very high grades, About Uncirculated and Uncirculated. As most collectors know the Florin is the most difficult denomination to find, we don’t know why this is, but it just is. The coins are beautiful and struck in 500 fine silver, you will be proud to have one in your collection. Remember, the year after in 1849 was the last year ever that our coins were struck in silver.
