George V, King's Norton Penny, 1918

In the reign of King George V the Royal Mint ran out of capacity to strike enough coins for everyday usage, so they contracted out the minting of some Pennies. One of the two Mints they used was the King’s Norton Mint, unlike the Birmingham Mint, the King’s Norton Mint had never struck coins for them before. They only made pennies for the Mint in 1918 and 1919 and all of these coins carry the ‘KN’ mint mark by the left of the date. Of the two mints, the King’s Norton is by far the most difficult to get. We have a nice little group of the 1918 issue in Fine condition. Remember these KN Pennies were only ever struck for two years.

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1964 BU

The 1964 Halfcrown has always been one of the most difficult to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Even at the time of issue, it was not an easy coin to find in top grade. If you are missing this coin or you know someone born or married in 1964 then this coin would make a great gift. Supplies are limited, don’t miss out.

World War I Penny Collection 1914-1918

One of our competitors is offering a set of World War I Pennies 1914-1918. Yes, their set comes in a smart case, but they are charging £79.50 for the collection... Also, the coins they illustrated were cleaned, they probably think that improves their appearance, but it actually depreciates their worth. Our coins are average circulated just as theirs are, but ours are natural, we have not cleaned them. We do not supply a case, on the other hand, our set is priced at £10.00 and theirs is priced at £79.50. We will not name the other company, we don't want to shame them any more than their price of £79.50 shames them already...

Picture of George V, Halfcrown Fine, 1914

George V, Halfcrown Fine, 1914

This Sterling Silver Halfcrown was issued during the first year of World War I, 1914. It was the largest silver coin struck at the time, as no crown for George V would be issued until 1927. You have the bare head of the King facing left and the reverse has the crowned arms within a wreath. All British coins until and including 1919 were struck in Sterling Silver. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and 1914 is not the easiest date to find. This is an interesting coin, an interesting date and one of the last coins from this country to be struck in Sterling Silver.
