George III, Crown Fair

In 1816 the government made all of the older coins no longer legal tender. They then issued a whole series of new coins, which were, of course, legal tender. This is the first type of Crown or Five Shillings to be issued for King George III. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were issued only from 1818-1820. This coin is now proving very hard to get and it has been some time since we last had enough to offer them to our collectors. Dates of our choice, but we can offer them in Fair and Very Good condition. Here we present the coin in Fair condition. A very important coin as it was the first of the ‘new’ coinage to be struck.

George III, Halfpenny Fine, 1806

During the reign of King George III there was a great shortage of small change. The last type of Halfpenny issued for this Monarch were struck in 1806 and 1807. We recently purchased a nice group of the 1806 issue, the first year of issue in Fine and Very Fine condition. You have the bust of King George III dressed as a Roman on one side and the seated figure of Britannia on the other side. These were the last copper George III halfpennies issued. After the Currency Reform Act of 1816, they didn’t bother to issue any halfpennies.

Edward VII, Penny, 1903

King Edward VII was the son of Queen Victoria and because she ruled for so long, his rule was rather short. In fact coins of Edward VII were only issued from 1902-1910, but that also means that all of his coins are over 100 years old. This issue we are offering the bronze Pennies of King Edward VII by date. All coins are in Very Good condition with the details and the date clearly legible. You have the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful seated Britannia on the other side.
