George V, Halfcrown 1915 Very Fine
In 1915 the battle of Gallipoli started, the foundation of British Woman’s Institute, ANZAC tradition begins, German U-boat sinks the Lusitania, Pluto is photographed for the first time, 1st prototype tank is tested by British Army and Italy joins the Allies and declares war on Austrian Hungarian Empire. It was a very busy year, King George V had been on the throne for only four years and our coinage was still being struck in Sterling Silver. The largest Silver coin struck in this country was the Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence, the current decimal equivalent of 12.5 Pence. We have a nice group of Very Fine 1915 King George V Sterling Silver Halfcrowns in stock, which we can now offer you. Remember that Very Fine is much nicer than they usually come. The last time we had some of these Sterling Silver Halfcrowns in Very Fine they quickly sold out.
