20 Different UK Cheques + FREE Collector’s Guide SPECIAL

Our bundle comprises 20 different cheques from all around the British Isles dating from the late 19th century through to the 1980s. Bought individually they would set you back £97.00 but we are offering the group for HALF that!-just £48.50!!! To make it even better we are throwing in a FREE copy of the Collectors Guide to Cheques by Shaw – a £5.75 value. Cheques are a tangible reflection of our nation’s financial history. There were hundreds and hundreds of banks before we ended up where we are today with just a handful. Some banks went bust while others merged and the cheque, a medium that is fast being phased out in favour of a digital record of our financial transactions, can trace all this. Kickstart your collection today- you will not regret it!

Picture of Elizabeth II, 1953 Coronation Set / 'Plastic Set'

Elizabeth II, 1953 Coronation Set / 'Plastic Set'

In 1953, for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Royal Mint issued new coins with the Queen’s portrait. For the first time ever, they issued all the coins from the Farthing to the Halfcrown in a plastic wallet. So this set became known as the ‘Plastic Set’. You get the Farthing, Halfpenny, Penny, Brass Threepence, Sixpence, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Florin, and Halfcrown, all in the plastic wallet as issued. Of course, over the past 65 years the wallet has become a little bit brittle and the coins a little mellowed in toning. They are important one-year type coins and the first coins of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. But, and this is a very important point, the 1953 coins are all unique type coins. In 1954 they changed the legend and therefore the 1953 coins are all unique one-year type coins. Available here with light toning.
