1929 was a changeover year when the world went from a financially carefree time to a "brother can you spare a coin" time. Our Monarch was King George V and our coins were still being struck in silver. The most difficult denomination to get was the Florin or two shillings.
The coinage of King George V was struck from 1911-1936. From 1911 until 1919 his coins were struck in Sterling Silver and from 1920-1936 they were struck in 500 fine Silver. Although there were crowns struck occasionally, on a regular basis the largest non gold coin struck was the Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence. The coin offered here is the 1929 Halfcrown in selected circulated condition, but let’s be honest the older the coin, the more circulation you can expect. We always give you the best coin we have in stock at that time.
When you joined the services, it was said that you ‘took the King’s shilling’. Here we offer the 1929 ‘King’s Shilling’. From 1927-1936 the design changed to a Lion proudly standing on a crown. The coin offered here is in selected circulated condition and struck in .500 silver.
Poland has always been a troubled nation, this was the last coin issued as the Republic and before the German Occupation. It has the Polish Eagle on one side and the value in a fancy cartouche on the other side. It is large (25mm) and struck in nickel. This design was only used in 1929 and is the last 1 Zloty coin issued by the Polish Republic. The coins are in Very Fine condition and are not easy to get any more; after all there are a lot of coin collectors in Poland now. Add one to your collection, it is a very attractive coin.
