George III, Crown Very Good

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 sometime since we last had enough to offer them. Dates of our choice, but we offer them here in Very Good condition. A very important coin as it was the first of the ‘new’ coinage to be struck.

George III, BH Sixpence Very Good

In 1816 there was the Currency Reform Act, which allowed coins to be struck even without the Monarch’s permission. This was put into place because of King George III’s illness and the shortage of small change. From 1816 on, new designs, new weights new everything. These are the first of the new Sterling Silver Sixpences issued from 1816-1820. You have the bull head of the King on one side and a crowned shield on the other side. Even in this grade supplies are limited.

George IV, Silver Crown Fine

In the reign of King George IV, he only issued crowns for circulation for two years 1821 and 1822. These are difficult to get as it was such a short mintage. We have a small supply of this Sterling Silver Crown and we have them in Fine condition. Dates are of our choice, but if you order more than one coin, we will try and give you one of each date. A short series and not an easy one to find.

George IV, Silver Crown Fair

This Sterling Silver Crown of King George IV is, in our opinion, greatly underappreciated. It was struck for only two years 1821 and 1822. That makes it about 200 years old. This Sterling Silver Crowns of King George IV are not only highly collectable, but very affordable as well. You have the bust of the King facing left wearing a laurel wreath with St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. An Uncirculated example will cost you about £2,000, but these circulated coins will cost you much less. We offer them in Fair condition which means there is much wear but all details including the date shows.
