We all admired the excellent award-winning movie, ‘The King’s Speech’ in 2010 which showed King George VI’s determination and strength. Now you can own original coins from the reign of George VI issued from 1937-1952, a Coronation Stamp issued in 1937 and a banknote issued just after World War II. You’ll receive the coins that were actually used during George VI’s reign: the bronze Farthing, Halfpenny and Penny, plus the brass Threepence, Silver Threepence and cupronickel Sixpence, Shilling, Florin and Half Crown. These are original, genuine coins and were actually used as money in the reign of King George VI. You also get an Uncirculated British Armed Forces 2nd series Pound issued by Command of the Army Council in 1948. To top it off, you get a Mint stamp issued in 1937 for George VI’s Coronation, issued and overprinted for use in British Morocco. This collection is exclusive to Coincraft. The entire collection comes in a presentation wallet loaded with interesting and historic information.
In 1937 our new King was crowned, he was of course King George VI. It was the first and last silver Proof Set to be issued for this monarch. World War II came in and there were just other uses for the metals rather than Proof Sets. But what a Proof Set this Coronation set is. You start off with the 4-piece Maundy Set, then you add a Silver Proof Crown, Silver Proof Halfcrown, Silver Proof Florin, the first-ever Silver Proof English Shilling, the first-ever Silver Proof Scottish Shilling, a Silver Proof Sixpence plus a Silver Proof threepence. Then you add a Brass Threepence, the first year of issue of this coin and in Proof, plus the Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing the first year of the Wren Farthing. Over all, you have 15 different coins in this Coronation Proof Set including three, yes three, Threepences. The set comes in the red leather case of issue, today they use leather look material, but in 1937 they used real leather. All the silver coins are in brilliant Proof condition. There are only ten left and if you have been waiting, wait no longer, you might miss out on this set…

US Buffalo Nickel, 1913. In circulated condition. First struck in 1913 and now 104 years old, this popular design was part of an attempt to make the US coinage more attractive. This five Cent coin features the head of a Native Indian on one side and an American Bison on the reverse. They quickly proved popular with the American public and despite concerns about how quickly the coins became worn in circulation, continued to be minted until 1938 when they were replaced by the Jefferson Nickel. All coins have a full date. Most coins are dated in the 1930’s. Dates of our choice.
