Edward VII, Halfcrown Fine

Edward VII had a very short reign, 1901-1910, because his Mother, Queen Victoria, lived so long. Much of his coinage is difficult to get and in some cases rather expensive. All of his silver coins were struck in Sterling Silver and a crown was only issued in 1902 for his Coronation. So we offer the Sterling Silver Halfcrown, the largest denomination silver coin stuck for regular usage. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful crowned shield on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but no rare dates are included. Available here in Fine condition.

Picture of Victoria, Gothic Florin Fair

Victoria, Gothic Florin Fair

The first British decimal coin was the Florin or Two Shillings which today is the 10p. First issued in 1849 and changed to the Gothic design in 1851 these florins were struck in Sterling Silver. You have a crowned portrait of Queen Victoria facing left on the obverse and four crowned coats of arms on the reverse. The strangest thing is that a large part of the population was illiterate, yet instead of putting the date in what is known today as Arabic numerals, they put the date in Roman numerals. So that a large part of the populace could not even read the date that was on the coin. As 1851 became MDCCCLI. The coins on offer have seen considerable circulation, but don’t forget that even the most modern of the coins is today 132 years old. We have made sure that you can make out the date, even if only the last digits are clear.

George III, Crown Fair

In 1816 the government made all of the older coins no longer legal tender. They then issued a whole series of new coins, which were, of course, legal tender. This is the first type of Crown or Five Shillings to be issued for King George III. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were issued only from 1818-1820. This coin is now proving very hard to get and it has been some time since we last had enough to offer them to our collectors. Dates of our choice, but we can offer them in Fair and Very Good condition. Here we present the coin in Fair condition. A very important coin as it was the first of the ‘new’ coinage to be struck.
