George II, Farthing (Young Head)

King George II ruled from1727-1760, his young head bust was used on the copper farthings from 1730-1739. His bust is facing left on the obverse and Britannia is seated on the reverse. It is the smallest coin struck at the time, i.e. the lowest value and thus well circulated and used. We can offer this as a type coin, dates of our choice, in two different grades. Fair which is very worn but then again they are almost 300 years old and Fine with much more details show and to be honest a much nicer coin.

George II, Shilling (Old Head) 1758 Fine

King George II ruled from 1727-1760 and he was, of course, the son of King George I. There are two different busts of the King used on his coinage, the Young Head which was used from 1728-1745 and the Old Head which was used from 1746-1758. It is this older bust Shilling that we are offering here. The coins on offer were all struck in 1758. They were struck in Sterling Silver and have a mature bust of the King wearing a laurel wreath on one side and the crowned set of four shields on the other side. They represented England, Ireland, Scotland and France (!); you see we still claimed part of France even in those days. The Shilling is a nice-sized coin and we can offer it in Fine, remember that these coins are now 262 years old!

George II, Sixpence (Lima) Fine_obv

George II, Sixpence (Lima) Fine

During the reign of King George II, the British and the Spanish were fighting. The British captured a number of Spanish ships laden with silver from their South American mines. King George II, to rub the Spanish King’s nose in it, had British coins struck with the word ‘Lima’ below his bust. This was to remind the Spanish king where the silver had come from. These Sterling Silver sixpences were all dated 1746 which makes them 276 years old. The coins are in Fine condition which considering their age is a very acceptable grade.
