Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1964 Unc

In the Elizabeth II pre-decimal series there are just some dates that stand out and for sure 1964 is one of them. Don’t forget by 1964 the Mint was cutting down on the number of coins they were issuing in preparation of Decimal Day. It was only in 1967 that they realised that they needed a lot more coins to satisfy the daily demand for day to day transactions. That is why the 1967 coinage is so readily available. We have now available the scarce 1964 Halfcrown issue which Ian found on a buying trip to New Zealand, most difficult to find. Offered in Uncirculated condition and very difficult to find these days. Supplies are, of course, limited.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Sixpence 1956 Unc

Elizabeth II, Sixpence 1956 Unc

Anice example of a pre-decimal Elizabeth II Sixpence in Uncirculated condition. The Sixpence was the only coin that did not have a decimal equivalent that was allowed to still be used when decimal coins came in. That was because it was the price of a phone call in a call box and decimal coins were causing too many problems at that time.

Elizabeth II, Shilling (English) 1960 Brilliant Unc

In 1960 the Royal Mint issued their shilling coins with both an English and a Scottish reverse. Because of the lower population of Scotland, they produced far fewer Scottish shillings than English shillings. The coins on offer are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now 61 years old. Here we offer the 1960 English Shilling Brilliant Unc. The Royal Mint struck its last shillings for circulation in 1960. Not easy coins to find these days.

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1967 Unc

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.
