George V, Penny 'H' Mintmark Fine, 1918

It is strange but true; the Royal Mint did not strike a lot of the bronze coins that were issued in this country. In fact at one point they were using two private mints to strike coins for them. The Heaton Mint which has a mintmark ‘H’ as on this coin and the Kings Norton Mint which used a ‘KN’ mintmark. Interesting enough, both private mints have gone out of business. This Penny is dated 1918, which was during World War I and we guess the Royal Mint had too many other things on its plate. The mintmark is below Britannia to the left of the date. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and are rather difficult to find these days. The Royal Mint didn’t strike this 1918 Penny but the Mint Birmingham Ltd did. Why not add one to your collection?

France, Pre Euro 9 Coin Set

We have a wonderful collection of French coins issued just before they started to issue Euro coins. There are nine different French coins in this collection, all in selected circulated condition. There are two different 10 Franc coins including a bi-metallic one. You get the 5, 10 and 20 Centimes plus the 1/2 Franc, 1, 2, 5 Francs plus two types of the 10 Francs. A total of nine different French coins, all used before the Euro existed and who knows they might need them again… Not easy to put nine different French coins together, but we have. You can own the entire collection for a very reasonable price. If the Euro ceases to exist, they might use Francs again…

Picture of Edward VII, Silver Threepence

Edward VII, Silver Threepence

We just bought a large collection of King Edward VII Silver Threepences, the smallest silver coin issued by this Monarch for general usage. We have not checked the dates, but they were issued from 1902-1910. They were stuck in Sterling Silver and are well over 100 years old. We are not going to be sorting them, but just taking them out of the sack as they come. They are in Very Good or better condition and we know they are not easy to get. Everything before King George V is difficult to find, maybe it is because they are so old and struck in Sterling Silver. We offer individual coins here - if you order more than one you will get different dates: we won’t guarantee which dates you will get, but that they will be different. Great coins, the King only had coins for ten years and they are all over 100 years old…

Picture of Edward VII, Penny, 1905

Edward VII, Penny, 1905

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.
