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.

George V, Coins of the Titanic, 1912

Well not actually coins that sailed on The Titanic, as those are all at the bottom of the ocean, but rather two coins that were issued in 1912 and could have been used by people who sailed on The Titanic. The two coins are the Sterling Silver Threepence and the bronze Penny of 1912. They were both issued under King George V, who had been King for just 2 years at the time. Both coins are in Very Good condition and you get both Titanic 1912 coins for a very reasonable price.

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...
