George V, Crown (Rocking Horse Commemorative) 1935 Unc

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.

Edward VII, Shilling 1902 VG Fine

In 1902 the first coinage of King Edward VII was finally issued. He became King in 1901. Now, the rules say that no coins are to be released until after the Monarch’s Coronation, which in this case, almost didn’t happen. Edward had appendicitis and in those days people died from it. But an early operation saved him and the only consequence was that his Coronation was postponed. This Shilling is a most important denomination because when you joined the Armed Forces you were said to ‘Take the King’s Shilling’. It might have been one of these that were taken, who knows... Each Shilling is dated 1902, the Coronation Year, it is struck in Sterling Silver and will grade Very Good – Fine condition. The Edward VII series is a very short one, 1902-1910, yet there are many difficult coins in this series.

Picture of George VI, 1950 Royal Mint Proof Set

George VI, 1950 Royal Mint Proof Set

In 1950 the Royal Mint issued a Proof Set to celebrate the end of austerity. It was only the second Proof Set since the Coronation issue of 1937. The 1937 coins were struck in Silver and the 1950 coins were struck in base metal because, in 1947, all Silver was removed from our coins. The 1950 Proof Set contains the Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, Brass Threepence (Rare), Penny (Rare), Halfpenny and Farthing. The set comes in a card case. The coins have toned over the past years, but we always give you the best set that we have in stock. If the card case it too worn, then we put the set in a Sandhill Case to protect it. This set is Scarce and two of the coins are Rare
