George VI, 1950 Royal Mint Proof Set

In 1950 the Royal Mint issued a Proof Set to celebrate the end of austerity. It was only the second Proof Set since the Coronation issue of 1937. The 1937 coins were struck in Silver and the 1950 coins were struck in base metal because, in 1947, all Silver was removed from our coins. The 1950 Proof Set contains the Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, Brass Threepence (Rare), Penny (Rare), Halfpenny and Farthing. The set comes in a card case. The coins have toned over the past years, but we always give you the best set that we have in stock. If the card case it too worn, then we put the set in a Sandhill Case to protect it. This set is Scarce and two of the coins are Rare

George III, GB Incurrupta Patina Cupro-nickel

This is a Patina or retro-pattern to show what something might have looked like, had it been issued at the time. These are privately minted to the highest quality and are full crownsized 38mm. This is the George III pattern Crown issued with a large head of George III and an inscription that has caused it to be known as the Incorrupta Pattern. It is struck in Prooflike cupro-nickel to the highest standard. Because we bought these years ago, we can offer them at what seems almost a crazy low price. If they were made today, they would cost a heck of a lot more money.
