In 1953 for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II the Royal Mint issued new coins with her portrait on them. These coins could only be issued after the Coronation. To make them even more interesting the legend on the 1953 issue is unique and only used for one year. The sets were issued in plastic, which over the years has grown brittle and cracked. We have taken the sets out of their broken plastic and put them into a handsome presentation package, so you can see both sides of the coins. All coins are in Uncirculated condition but over the past 60 years and because they were in plastic, they have mellowed a little.
  
You get the Coronation Crown, Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, and Brass Threepence, Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing, all dated 1953 and all with the unique legend. We have seen the crown being offered on its own for about £30.00, so we believe that this complete Coronation Mint Set in presentation package is good value.

Elizabeth II, 1977 Mint Set Special

In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee or 25th anniversary as our Queen. The Royal Mint issued a special Crown to mark the occasion and more importantly, issued every denomination for that year for circulation. This is something that did not happen all that often. They also issued a Proof Set of these 1977 coins, but they did not issue a Mint Set in 1977. Years ago we obtained a quantity of the coins and had Sandhill make up a red white and blue display card for the 1977 Mint Set. It comes in a Sandhill case, which with the insert would cost you today at least £4-£5, as they are no longer made. You get the Halfpenny, Penny, Twopence, Five Pence, Ten Pence, 50 Pence and Crown. Only the Penny and Twopence are still being made today of the same size and even they are now made out of steel. All the other coins have been reduced in size except for the Halfpence and Crown which are no longer made. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, remember the case and insert alone would cost you £4-£5 today, a bargain!

George V, Threepence Sterling Silver, 1916

This King George V Threepence is dated 1916, issued during World War One, and most importantly is struck in Sterling Silver. Our coinage would be struck in Sterling Silver for just 3 more years. The coins are in Fine condition and have the bare head portrait of the King on one side and a crowned ‘3’ on the other side. A nice coin to add to your collection and it is 102 years old.
