George VI / Elizabeth II Type Set Collections

This is both the 70th anniversary of H. M. Queen Elizabeth II becoming our Queen and the 70th anniversary of the death of her father King George VI. Next time they are going to cost a lot more money… The George VI coins were mostly struck in cupro-nickel and bronze. The collection contains Farthing, Halfpenny, Penny, Brass Threepence, Sixpence, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Florin, and Halfcrown. We are offering them as a type set so dates will vary. The Queen Elizabeth II collection will contain the Farthing, Halfpenny, Penny, Brass Threepence, Sixpence, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Florin, and Halfcrown. All coins are in selected circulated condition and it took over a year to get all the coins together, sort them by type and select the correct condition. There are a total of 18 different coins and some of them are very difficult to find. We are going to sell the collection of 18 different George VI and Elizabeth II coins at a special price of just for £24.50, our normal price would be £37.50 that saves you £13.00 a collection, limit of just 3 collections per collector. After all they make excellent gifts.

1953 Coronation Crown Proof_obv

Elizabeth II, Crown (Coronation) 1953 Proof

We found a small number of the 1953 Coronation Crown in Proof condition in stock. These had to come from Proof Sets as they didn’t issue the crown in proof as a single coin. We have heard of some crazy prices that are either being asked for this coin or even sold for. These coins are Proof and that is all we will say about them. Some have a sort of misty toning on them, we do not touch or clean them. They are Proof 1953 Coronation Crowns from a 1953 Proof Set.

Elizabeth II, Sovereign 1957 Brilliant Uncirculated

The 1957 Queen Elizabeth II Sovereign is something very special. It was the first Elizabeth II gold sovereign that the public was allowed to buy. The milling on the edge is fine while all other later issues have coarser milling, so it is a true one-year type coin. You are getting an original 1957 Gold Sovereign, the first Sovereign issued for circulation in the reign of Queen Elizabeth II in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for only £625.00. This little hoard is very limited and it is being sold on a first-come-first-served basis.

George VI, 1937 Coronation Proof Set in Leather Case

In 1937 our new King was crowned, he was of course King George VI. It was the first and last silver Proof Set to be issued for this monarch. World War II came in and there were just other uses for the metals rather than Proof Sets. But what a Proof Set this Coronation set is. You start off with the 4-piece Maundy Set, then you add a Silver Proof Crown, Silver Proof Halfcrown, Silver Proof Florin, the first-ever Silver Proof English Shilling, the first-ever Silver Proof Scottish Shilling, a Silver Proof Sixpence plus a Silver Proof threepence. Then you add a Brass Threepence, the first year of issue of this coin and in Proof, plus the Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing the first year of the Wren Farthing. Over all, you have 15 different coins in this Coronation Proof Set including three, yes three, Threepences. The set comes in the red leather case of issue, today they use leather look material, but in 1937 they used real leather. All the silver coins are in brilliant Proof condition. There are only ten left and if you have been waiting, wait no longer, you might miss out on this set…
