George V, Crown 1935 (Silver Specimen) Prooflike

In 1935 King George V celebrated his Silver Jubilee 1910-1935. The Royal Mint for the first time issued a commemorative Crown to honour the event. Despite being the height of The Depression, they issued them in Gold and Silver Proofs, which quickly sold out. So they issued more of them in Silver Specimen condition. They look Prooflike rather than Proof but are the best condition that most collectors can get. Remember this is the first commemorative crown from this country and even the Prooflike Crowns quickly sold out. We bought a small group from a dealer who has been hoarding them, but supplies are very limited.

George V, Rocking Horse Commemorative Crown 1935 Unc

We recently purchased a small group of the 1935 George V Silver Jubilee Crowns. This was the first-ever commemorative crown issued and it was for the King’s 25th anniversary or Silver Jubilee on the throne. You have the bust of the King on one side and a most unusual rendition of St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. In fact, our owner was the first person to call it ‘The Rocking Horse Crown’ as that was what it looked like. This crown was only struck in 1935 for King George V’s Diamond Jubilee. Although there was the Great Depression on, the public loved this Crown and the Royal Mint had to strike more of them than anticipated. Now over 80 years later it is still highly collected, but it is one of the best value Crowns around. We can offer you this 1935 Silver Jubilee Crown struck in Silver and in Uncirculated condition.

Picture of George V, Penny Brilliant Uncirculated, 1936

George V, Penny Brilliant Uncirculated, 1936

This King George V Penny was issued 83 years ago in 1936, but it has a most interesting history. In 1936 we had three Kings, George V died, Edward VIII became King, although he never had a Coronation and finally his brother became George VI. But the real secret is that most of the coins with the portrait of King George V were actually struck while Edward VIII was on the throne. We bought a fantastic little hoard of these the largest bronze coin issued at the time. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, which considering they are 83 years old is quite fantastic. Add that into the history of 1936 and you have a heck of wonderful coin. The condition is top quality and the history is amazing, but supplies are limited.

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…
