George V and a George VI Pair of Silver Sixpences. All coins are original and genuine and struck by the Royal Mint, the ones that they are selling and the ones that we are selling are exactly the same. They were made for circulation and are struck in 500 fine Silver. Check out the Royal Mint website and you will see that they are charging £26.00 for each coin or £52.00 for the pair.
We recently bought three bags of King George V Farthings. They are all struck between 1911 and 1936, but we have not sorted them by date, they will be just as they come out of the sacks. Having glanced through a bag of these George V farthings the coins are in Fine or better condition. Richard didn’t look at the coins for dates, so we will sell them as they come. We will ask one of the staff who has little knowledge of British coins to just count them out. They came from a dealer who has been in coins for over 50 years and is now retiring. Here we are offering them as they come out of a sack, 10 pieces for £15.00.

Most people associate 1912 with the sinking of the unsinkable ship The Titanic but, as numismatists, we think of it as the year the Royal Mint couldn’t produce all the Pennies they needed and had to get an outside firm to help them. That firm was the Heaton Mint Ltd. in Birmingham. So if you look at a 1912 Penny to the left of the date and slightly upward you may well see an ‘H’ mintmark. This was the mintmark for the Heaton Mint. We have made up this pair of 1912 and 1912 H Pennies in a plastic flip-type envelope, so you can see both pennies at the same time. The coins are in selected circulated condition which, considering that they are now 110 years old, is quite good condition. Show them to your friends and ask if they can spot the difference. If they can’t, then you can show them the ‘H’ and explain what else happened.
We recently purchased a small group of the 1935 George V Silver Jubilee Crowns. This was the first-ever commemorative crown issued and it was for the King’s 25th anniversary or Silver Jubilee on the throne. You have the bust of the King on one side and a most unusual rendition of St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. In fact, our owner was the first person to call it ‘The Rocking Horse Crown’ as that was what it looked like. This crown was only struck in 1935 for King George V’s Diamond Jubilee. Although there was the Great Depression on, the public loved this Crown and the Royal Mint had to strike more of them than anticipated. Now over 80 years later it is still highly collected, but it is one of the best value Crowns around. We can offer you this 1935 Silver Jubilee Crown struck in Silver and in Uncirculated condition.
It sounds strange nowadays with the Royal Mint issuing commemorative coins almost daily, but the first commemorative coin for this country was the 1935 Crown. It was issued to honour the Silver Jubilee of King George V 1910-1935. There were no other commemorative coins for this country before the 1935 Crown, although we still don’t know about the Gothic Crown. It has a rather unusual rendition of St. George slaying the dragon and we were the first people to say it looked like a rocking horse. From then it rapidly became known as ‘The Rocking Horse Crown’. You must remember that this country was in depression as was the rest of the world, so a Crown or Five Shilling piece was a lot of money at the time. We have some nice Extremely Fine examples of this first-ever British commemorative Crown to offer you. Extremely Fine is a very high grade and considering the coin is now 83 years old, we think it is a winner.
These are not common and are in Uncirculated to Brilliant Uncirculated condition. That means that they are Uncirculated with lustre but not fully Brilliant. Here at Coincraft we try to grade coins properly.
This King George V Farthing was struck in 1920, just after the end of World War I. They are made in bonze and have the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful seated Britannia on the reverse. We came across a little group of these 1920 Farthings in Uncirculated and Uncirculated - Brilliant Unc condition. We bought them immediately, as we know they are not easy to get in such high grades. You know some of the coins that are supposedly ‘common’ really can be most difficult to get. Don’t miss out on this offer…
In 1921 George V was our Monarch and he had celebrated the 10th anniversary of his Coronation (1911-1921). The smallest and most used coin of this year was the bronze Farthing. You have the bare head of King George V facing left on the obverse and the reverse has the seated figure of Britannia. For some reason, the 1921 in high grades is most difficult to get. After all, it is almost 100 years old. Available here in Uncirculated - Brilliant Uncirculated. It has been a long time since we have seen such nice examples of this scarce date of Farthings. Treat yourself; after all, you deserve it…
As most collectors know that 1930 coins issued during the Depression are scarce in any grade and Rare in the highest grades. Phil bought a fantastic group of the 1930 King George V Farthings in Brilliant Uncirculated and Uncirculated – Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Not only is it one of the Key dates but the condition is outstanding. Get them while you can, as when this group is gone who knows where we will find any more. Remember they are the Key Date. The Brilliant Uncirculated coins presented here are just that: Brilliant Uncirculated but of course, over the past 91 years, they will have slightly mellowed.

1936 was the year that King George V died, his son became Edward VIII and then abdicated so his brother could become King George VI, the father of our own Queen, Elizabeth II. All of the Farthings issued in 1936 carried the portrait of King George V and the Farthing was the lowest denomination made at the time. The Depression was still blowing cold air and a Farthing would still buy you something. Here we present the last George V Farthing in Uncirculated condition.
In 1921 George V was our Monarch, Stalin was appointed General Secretary of the Communist Party, Mussolini became Prime Minister of Italy, Gandhi was arrested for sedition, and The Ottoman Empire fell after 600 years. The BBC had its first radio service in London, Tutankhamen’s tomb was discovered and Labour became the main opposition party. The first female Senator was elected in the United States, and the British Empire covered 1/4 of the world. Here are offering you the 1921 Silver Florin to commemorate 100 years of the passing of all of these events. All coins are struck in 500 fine Silver and are in selected circulated condition. Show them to your friends - they will be amazed that you have 100-year old coins in your possession. You can have any or all the coins from 1921, which today are officially antique coins.
What is special about a 1923 Florin? Nothing much except thy will soon be 100 years old. That it was struck under King George V and it was struck in silver. And, Oh yes! The denomination is the most difficult denomination to get. Usually we charge £22.50 for this coin, but we have some pieces that have just come in at just £17.50 each, they are nice selected circulated condition.
This Silver Florin is dated 1936 and has a most interesting history. It may have been issued under any one of 3 different British Monarchs. It has the portrait of King George V on it, but as he died early on, it was probably struck under King Edward VIII or it might have even have been struck under King George VI. As you can see it has an interesting history. In any case it is known as the 3 Kings Florin. And as most collectors know, the Florin is the most difficult denomination to find. We offer specially selected circulated examples, remember that they are 84 years old! An interesting coin, which you can show and talk about to your friends. A talkabout coin.
As most collectors realize the Florin or Two Shillings is the most difficult denomination to find. The Sterling Silver coinage of King George V was only issued from 1911-to 1919, so they are even more difficult to find than most. The dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates you will be sent. The coins are in specially selected Very Good - Fine condition and are over 100 years old.
In the reign of King George V the gold Half Sovereign was only issued from 1911 until 1915. The Half Sovereign has always been a more difficult coin to obtain than the Sovereign. Mainly because they always made far fewer half-sovereigns than full sovereigns. In this case, they only issued this coin for five years. We can offer nice examples in Extremely Fine condition. And if you order two coins we will make sure you get two different dates. A coin that is missing from many collections and this is your chance to change all that.
