Coincraft is proud to offer The Standard Catalogue of the coins of Scotland, Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. It was the first new book on the subject since 1984 and is one book that everyone will want and need.

Richard Falkiner in the Antique Trade Gazette says "indeed clarity seems to have been the watchword of its team of authors. The first thing that struck your reviewer was the immense amount of work which has gone into this catalogue and it is difficult to see how it could be superseded"/

This covers the whole of the British Isles and Islands in an easy to use way, that tells you what the coin is and a little history about the coin and the time it was struck.

A huge (A4) book contains 439 pages of information on glossy art paper, and is heavily illustrated in the usual Coincraft format. This is more than a catalogue - it is a history of the nations and the time as well.

Before we ship books we will advise you of the shipping costs by e-mail, as these costs vary significantly per book and per region

George VI Collection - Coins, banknote and stamp

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.
1905 Edward VII Gold Half Sovereign Very Fine_obv

Edward VII, Half Sovereign 1905 Very Fine

1905 Edward VII gold Half Sovereign. Very Fine. Everyone who collects the coins of King Edward VII knows that the silver coins dated 1905 are Rare. Well here is a Gold coin of King Edward VII dated 1905 and it won’t cost you the earth… It is the Half Sovereign which, as most collectors realise, is far more difficult to get than the full sovereign. We remember years ago at Christmas time, when gold coins were wanted for jewellery for gifts, that Half Sovereigns sold for more money than full Sovereigns. Even though they contained half the gold. The coins on offer are struck by the Royal Mint in 22ct Gold, weigh about 4 grams and are in Very Fine condition. They are now almost 120 years old and certainly can be called antique. Many things going for it, especially the quality and the price.

Elizabeth II, Complete Date Set of Sixpences

The complete collection of Queen Elizabeth II Sixpences from the Coronation year 1953 until they ceased striking Sixpences for everyday usage in 1967. The Sixpence or Tanner, as it was called, was one of the most liked coins of its day. In fact, it was so well-liked that it was still legal tender till well after decimalization came into effect! You'll get all the dates: 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958. 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967. All the scarce and rare dates are included. All coins are struck in cupro-nickel and are in selected circulated condition. There are 15 different dates and you get all 15 of them. Remember that a Sixpence is usually carried by the bride for good luck. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a sixpence in your shoe! Sixpences make wonderful gifts and are an important part of British history!
