Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (Platinum Jubilee) 2022 BU

We were lucky enough to have another dealer offer us a couple of original bags of the 2022 Queen Elizabeth II 50 Pence coins. These were issued just before the Queen died and are one of her last coins to be issued. On one side you have the bust of Queen Elizabeth II and on the reverse a large 70 with the crowned cypher in the middle and the dates 1952-2022. These coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and have never been used. We opened the sealed Royal Mint bags ourselves, these coins are about as nice as you can get for coins actually struck to be used. The fifty pence denomination is the most popular or any denomination the Mint issues and this is one of the last Queen Elizabeth II coins to be struck

Edward VII, Threepence (Silver)

We just bought a large collection of King Edward VII Silver Threepences, the smallest silver coin issued by this Monarch for general usage. We have not checked the dates, but they were issued from 1902-1910. They were stuck in Sterling Silver and are well over 100 years old. We are not going to be sorting them, but just taking them out of the sack as they come. They are in Very Good or better condition and we know they are not easy to get. Everything before King George V is difficult to find, maybe it is because they are so old and struck in Sterling Silver. We offer individual coins here - if you order more than one you will get different dates: we won’t guarantee which dates you will get, but that they will be different. Great coins, the King only had coins for ten years and they are all over 100 years old…

George V, Threepence 1919 (the last struck in Sterling Silver) Fine

In 1919 the Royal Mint issued the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence for circulation. The next year, 1920, they reduced the silver content in our coins from 925 fine silver to 500 fine silver. King George V was on the Throne and World War I was just over, the economy needed the extra income from less silver in our coinage. We can offer the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence in Fine condition for just £8.50. It shows what inflation does to our money, today there is no silver in our coins just cupro-nickel, and even the smallest coins are only copper-plated steel.
