Edward VII, Third Farthing, 1902 About Uncirculated

In 1902, the year that King Edward VII was crowned, they also struck the smallest denomination ever for this Monarch. It was the bronze Third Farthing and there were 2,880 to the Pound. It was mostly used overseas, but still legal tender and of some use in this country. The 1902 Edward VII Third Farthing was only issued for one year, the total mintage is just 288,000 or £100 face value, it is the smallest denomination issued for this monarch and the lowest denomination issued in the 20th Century. We have had hoards of the George V issue, but this is the first real hoard of the Edward VII issue that we have had. The coins on offer here is in About Uncirculated condition and remember they were only issued in 1902 the Coronation year of King Edward VII. Think of all the fun you can have with this one, tell your friends that you have a Third Farthing and they won’t believe you. Show them the coin and they still won’t believe it.

George VI, Penny (Rare) 1950 Very Fine

The two lowest mintages of the old Penny coin were struck in 1950 and 1951 during the reign of King George VI. In 1950 they only made 240,000 coins that means for £1000 you could have bought all the 1950 Pennies they ever made. Until very recently numismatists have always thought that all the 1950 Pennies were shipped to Bermuda for use after World War II. Now we know that this information is wrong. They were also sent to the Bahamas in the West Indies. How do we know? Because a good friend went to the Bahamas 50 years ago and advertised in the newspapers to buy these coins. For the past 50 years these coins have lain in his safe deposit box untouched. It was only when the bank closed down his branch that he had to do something with them. What he did was to offer them to us and we bought them all, all 1571 coins. Coincraft have purchased the largest and only hoard of 1950 Pennies in the world and they came from the Bahamas. Now these coins were actually used in circulation, because after the War there was a great shortage of small change. The island has a very salty atmosphere and thus the coins are very scarce in the higher grades. The coins on offer are in Very Fine condition and remember they only struck a total of 240,000 1950 Pennies for circulation. Most collections are missing this date of King George VI Penny, but now you can change all that. Now you can add a Key Date 1950 Penny to your collection, while this Bahamas Hoard lasts. But there are far more collectors who want this coin than there are coins to satisfy those needs.

Victoria, Half Farthing Uncirculated

In the reign of Queen Victoria the Half Farthing was only struck in copper. It is one of the smallest denominations ever made. We have a wonderful group of these copper Half Farthings in very high grade. Most of them will be dated 1844. You have the Young Head on one side and the date and denomination on the other side. They are struck in copper and now are over 173 years old. But the most interesting thing is their high quality.

Picture of Edward VII, Silver Threepence

Edward VII, Silver Threepence

We just bought a large collection of King Edward VII Silver Threepences, the smallest silver coin issued by this Monarch for general usage. We have not checked the dates, but they were issued from 1902-1910. They were stuck in Sterling Silver and are well over 100 years old. We are not going to be sorting them, but just taking them out of the sack as they come. They are in Very Good or better condition and we know they are not easy to get. Everything before King George V is difficult to find, maybe it is because they are so old and struck in Sterling Silver. We offer individual coins here - if you order more than one you will get different dates: we won’t guarantee which dates you will get, but that they will be different. Great coins, the King only had coins for ten years and they are all over 100 years old…
