George V, Halfcrown (.925 Sterling Silver) Very Fine

The George V Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence was struck in Sterling .925 Silver from 1911-1919 and in 500 fine Silver from 1920-1936. The Halfcrown was the largest silver denomination that was struck almost every year. It was a lot money at the time. We have managed to put together a nice group of both types of George V Halfcrowns and we offer them by type and not by date. This Sterling Silver Halfcrown is the hardest to find in high grade as the dies wore out quickly and they were slow to replace them. There are no rare dates available.

The coins on offer are in Fine condition and 1914 is not the easiest date to find. This is an interesting coin, an interesting date and one of the last coins from this country to be struck in Sterling Silver.
