George VI, Coronation Crown 1937 Extremely Fine

In 1937 King George VI was finally crowned and he had his Coronation. It had been a turbulent period with his father having died and his brother abdicating. He went through a lot and worse was to come in the shape of World War II. He did a splendid job considering how much pressure he was under. For his Coronation, the Royal Mint struck a special Crown in silver. Because of the war, this would be King George VI’s only silver crown to be issued. We have offered them in a lower grade recently, but a dealer sold us a nice group in Extremely Fine and that is what we are offering you now. The 1937 King George VI Silver Coronation Crown in Extremely Fine. These coins will all have a lustre and only the smallest amount of actual wear. Nice coins for your date or type collection.

Picture of Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Very Fine

Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Very Fine

Queen Victoria finally consented to a change of the design of her portrait on the coinage of the United Kingdom in 1887. For the previous 50 years, all of her coins had the Young Head portrait, showing the Queen when she was a 17-year-old girl. The Florin as a coin had only been in existence since 1849. We can offer the Jubilee Head Sterling Silver Florins of Queen Victoria issued 1887-1892 in two different grades. Dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you. On one side you have the Jubilee Head bust of the Queen with a rather silly small-sized crown on her head. The other side has four coats of arms. All of these Jubilee Head Florins are struck in Sterling Silver and they are, despite what Victoria thought, rather attractive. We can offer them here in Very Fine, they are nice collectable examples.

Victoria, Double Florin Fine

Do you have this Victorian Silver Coin in your pocket? Well no actually you don’t, but you might have the direct decimal equivalent. If you have in your pocket or handbag a 20p piece please get it out. Because the coin we are offering you is the same denomination but in Victorian spending money. The famous or infamous Victorian Double Florin (Four Sterling Silver Shillings) would be worth 20p in today’s money. Here we present the coin in Fine condition. First issued for Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in 1887 the Double Florin was last issued in 1890. Too many drunk barmaids gave change for a crown 5 shillings when they were only given a Double Florin 4 shillings. This helped to get them to stop making this short-lived denomination. Its nickname quickly became ‘the barmaid’s ruin’, for all those barmaids who gave the wrong change and were ruined..

Edward VII, Shilling 1910 VG-Fine

Edward VII’s reign was very short, as he had to wait for his mother, Queen Victoria, to pass before he could become King. Coins for this Monarch were only issued from 1902-1910. Here we offer the 1910 Shilling, which of course was given to individuals when they joined the Services. You were said to take the King’s Shilling. This 1910 Shilling is in Very Good-Fine condition, and it was struck in Sterling Silver, which is the finest silver that coins actually meant to be used were struck in.
