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 some time 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, 'Bull Head' Sixpence Very Good_Obv

George III, Sixpence (Bull Head) 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 bullhead of the King on one side and a crowned shield on the other side. Even in this grade supplies are limited.

Victoria, Crown (Jubilee Head) Very Fine

As most collectors know, Queen Victoria kept her youthful portrait on coinage from 1837 until 1887. It was only later in 1887, when she was celebrating her Golden Jubilee, that she allowed the portrait to be changed. This new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head portrait. We have Fine examples of the largest Silver coin issued at the time, the Crown or Five Shilling piece. Normally they come in Very Good condition, our examples are in Fine quality, which will please most collectors. Dates will be of our choice, but this Jubilee Head Crown was only issued from 1887-1892. They are struck in Sterling Silver and are above average for the coin. Our supplies are limited.
