George VI 1940 Halfcrown Fine

This was the highest denomination struck during the Second World War, the Halfcrown or two shillings and sixpence. The Monarch on the coin was our wartime King, George VI. He and his family stayed in London throughout the bombing. You have the bare head of the King on one side and a crowned coat of arms on the other side. They were struck in silver as the base metals were far more useful in the war effort. Each Silver Halfcrown is dated 1940 – exactly 80 years old and they are in Fine condition. They make great gifts for someone born in 1940 or a military collector.
