Victoria, Shilling 1887 About Uncirculated

We have a nice little box full of Queen Victoria 1887 Jubilee Head Shillings. These are coins that we would call About Uncirculated and we guess most coin dealers would call Uncirculated. As they have come in, in collections and purchases over the counter, we have placed them in my little box. They are almost nice enough to be called Uncirculated, but they are too nice to just sell as Extremely Fine, if you know what we mean. They are struck in Sterling Silver and this design was only used for two years, 1887 and 1888. The coins are very nice and we think you will like the price as well, but remember it is only a little box and supplies are limited…

Picture of Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Extremely Fine

Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Extremely Fine

In 1887 Queen Victoria allowed her portrait to be changed from the Young Head to the Jubilee Head portrait. The coins were struck in Sterling Silver and the most difficult denomination to find is the Florin. Don’t forget the Florin as a denomination only came into being in 1849. The coins on offer are in Extremely Fine condition, which is a very high grade and based on some of the prices I have seen being asked at coin fairs, are very expensive. Well our coins are not that highly priced, we have been building up our little inventory for a couple of years and they were bought right, so we are going to sell them right. But the Florin is the most difficult denomination to get, especially in Extremely Fine condition.

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.

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 3, 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. Supplies are very limited and if you have been waiting, wait no longer, it just might cost you money…
