Elizabeth II, Sixpence 1956 Unc

Anice example of a pre-decimal Elizabeth II Sixpence in Uncirculated condition. The Sixpence was the only coin that did not have a decimal equivalent that was allowed to still be used when decimal coins came in. That was because it was the price of a phone call in a call box and decimal coins were causing too many problems at that time.

1964 Halfcrown Uncirculated

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1964 Unc

In the Elizabeth II pre-decimal series there are just some dates that stand out and for sure 1964 is one of them. Don’t forget by 1964 the Mint was cutting down on the number of coins they were issuing in preparation of Decimal Day. It was only in 1967 that they realised that they needed a lot more coins to satisfy the daily demand for day to day transactions. That is why the 1967 coinage is so readily available. We have now available the scarce 1964 Halfcrown issue which Ian found on a buying trip to New Zealand, most difficult to find. Offered in Uncirculated condition and very difficult to find these days. Supplies are, of course, limited.

Elizabeth II, Scotland, Pair of Scottish Shillings 1966 BU

Most people think that the last pre-decimal coins struck for circulation were dated 1967, they would only be partly right. In fact most pre-decimal coins were last struck in 1967, that is except for the Shilling. The last Shilling struck for circulation was in 1966, they did not make any in 1967. They issued two different types of 1966 Shillings, the English reverse and the Scottish reverse. The coin on offer this issue is the Scottish 1966 Shilling in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. As the Shilling had a direct decimal equivalent they felt that they had enough of this denomination to fill all their needs at the time. We are offering you a pair (2 pieces) of the 1966 Scottish Shilling in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Why two pieces? So you can show the obverse and reverse at the same time
