George V, Halfcrown 1921

This 1921 Halfcrowns will be 100 years old next year, which makes them almost an official genuine antique. This was only the second year of our coins being struck in .500 fine silver and the halfcrown was the largest silver coin struck for general circulation. The Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence was in many cases a day’s wages. These coins are all in selected circulated condition. We thought it would be fun to present you with a coin that will be exactly 100 years old next year.

George V, Threepence Silver, 1933

It was the height of the Depression and Roosevelt had called a ‘Bank Holiday’ and closed all the banks. He later declared it illegal for American citizens to own gold coins. The United States and the world were in a terrible state. Yet under King George V, this country still issued the Threepence in Silver. They were 500 fine Silver and the smallest coin struck in silver in this country. To make people happy the film King Kong came out that same year. The 1933 Silver Threepences we have on offer are in Fine condition and are now 85 years old. If for nothing else, it reminds you that governments will try to forbid their citizens to own gold coins, but not at Coincraft!
