In 1953 the Royal Mint issued a Farthing for the Queen’s Coronation, in 1954 they changed the legend slightly. You have a youthful portrait of the Queen on one side and a wren on the other side. The Farthing as a denomination was discontinued just two years later in 1956.
The 1954 Farthing is one of only three dates with this legend and all the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. A Farthing was the smallest denomination issued for regular usage and there were 960 of them to the Pound.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Farthing 1955 Brilliant Unc

Elizabeth II, Farthing 1955 Brilliant Unc

The 1955 Wren Farthing was the penultimate, or the next to last Farthing to ever be struck. In 1956 the last ever Farthing was struck. For some reason, this penultimate Farthing is rather difficult to find in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You have the youthful bust of Queen Elizabeth II on one side, remember that she only came to the throne in 1952, and on the other side you have a beautiful little wren. The coins on offer are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now some 63 years old. For those of you too young to remember, there were 240 Pennies to the Pound and 4 Farthings to the Penny. So that a pound’s worth of Farthings would have been 960 coins. Don’t we wish we had the money and had put them away at the time?

Picture of Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1967 Uncirculated

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1967 Uncirculated

In 1967 the Royal Mint issued the last Halfcrown for circulation a denomination that had been going since the reign of King Edward VI. For those of you too young to remember, a Halfcrown was Two Shillings and Sixpence. These were the largest circulating coins issued at the time and had a decimal equivalent of 12.5p. They are dated 1967 and are in Uncirculated condition. At that time you felt lucky if you were given a Halfcrown at Christmas as a gift. On the front is the youthful portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and on the back is a crowned shield with E R at the sides with the denomination and the date.

Elizabeth II, Florin 1967 Brilliant Unc

Elizabeth II, The Last 1967 Florin. Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1967 the Royal Mint issued its last ever Florin for circulation.

We can offer the last ever, the 1967 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for just £4.00. At one time a number of years ago, we had to pay that price to get them. But a fortunate find, in our basement, allows us to offer them to you. Limit of three coins per collector and well worth having.
