George V, 1912 & 1912 'H' Heaton Mint Pennies in Flip Envelope
Availability: In stock
SKU: UD12P
£4.95

Most people associate 1912 with the sinking of the unsinkable ship The Titanic but, as numismatists, we think of it as the year the Royal Mint couldn’t produce all the Pennies they needed and had to get an outside firm to help them. That firm was the Heaton Mint Ltd. in Birmingham. So if you look at a 1912 Penny to the left of the date and slightly upward you may well see an ‘H’ mintmark. This was the mintmark for the Heaton Mint.
We have made up this pair of 1912 and 1912 H Pennies in a plastic flip type envelope, so you can see both pennies at the same time. The coins are in selected circulated condition which, considering that they are now 105 years old, is quite good condition. Show them to your friends and ask if they can see the difference. When they can’t see the difference, then you can show them the ‘H’ and explain what has happened.

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.
