George VI, Halfcrown 1944 Choice Uncirculated

Of course, 1944 is an important date for many reasons largely regarding the events of world war II. At that time our Monarch was King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. Our coinage was still being struck in Silver as this was less useful to the War Effort than cupronickel in producing munitions. The largest denomination struck in 1944 was the Half Crown, Two Shillings and Sixpence. The coins on offer are at the top end of the grading scale and are very nice examples - choice uncirculated. The coins have seen no wear, but of course over the past 74 years they will have toned a little, but then again haven’t we all? Nice coins that will please and delight you.

Picture of George IV, Shilling (Bare Head) Very Good

George IV, Shilling (Bare Head) Very Good

King George IV only ruled from 1820-1830, so his coinage was rather short-lived. The coin on offer is his sterling silver shilling issued between 1825-1829. You have the King’s head facing left and the reverse has a lion standing on a crown. They were only issued in 1825, 1826, 1827 and 1829. When you joined the army or navy you were said to take the King’s Shilling, so why not take The Sailor King’s Shilling? These coins are now over 180 years old and time to add one or more to your collection. In Very Good condition.

Elizabeth II, Half Sovereign 2007 BU

Of all the modern British gold on the market, the most underappreciated is the Queen Elizabeth II Half Sovereign in Uncirculated. Yes, we said Uncirculated and not Proof. The Proof coins were all saved by collectors, the Brilliant Uncirculated coins were just not put away. We have bought a nice group of Brilliant Uncirculated examples. Try and find them elsewhere and you will see what we mean about them being underappreciated and not saved for collectors. Each coin is struck in 22ct Gold by the Royal Mint and is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, but supplies are limited.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Halfcrown Uncirculated, 1966

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown Uncirculated, 1966

In 1967 the last Halfcrown ever was struck for circulation. So the 1966 is the penultimate issue and in fact is many times harder to get in Uncirculated condition than the 1967 Halfcrown. We have nice Uncirculated examples of the scarcer 1966 Queen Elizabeth II Halfcrown to offer to our collectors. A lucky buy allowed us to offer them to you this issue. They are the largest in both size and denomination that was struck for circulation, after all the crowns really circulated in the 1960’s. Add an Uncirculated 1966 Queen Elizabeth II Halfcrown to your collection; it is something that not all that many collectors have…
