Falkand Islands, 50 pence 2001 History of British coins - Queen Victoria Young Head Sovereign
This is a fantastic coin on coin piece from the Falkland Islands. It is a crown sized silver 50 Pence piece of Queen Elizabeth II, depicting not only Queen Victoria but also a representation of one of her coins, which is highlighted in gold. They come in regular thickness and in Piedfort double thickness. We believe that the mintages are rather low. Each coin is struck in Proof Sterling Silver and has Her Majesty the Queen on the obverse. These are very difficult low mintage coins to find, they are yours at very special prices. Remember today the Mint charges about £80 for a silver-proof crown and about £155 in piedfort and their mintages are much, much higher.
