Canada, Newfoundland, George V 50 cents

In 1949 Newfoundland officially became part of the Canadian confederacy. Until the reign of King George VI they still issued their own coinage, but the largest coin the 50 Cents was last issued under King George V. We believe that this is the first time that we have had the King George V 50 Cents silver to offer you. A lucky buy has allowed us to offer them to you. Remember this is a country that no longer issues its own coinage. At the time this 50 Cents was the largest denomination coin issued by Newfoundland. The coins on offer are in Very Good condition and dates will be of our choice.

Canada, Newfoundland, George VI, 3 Coin Set

We have put together a nice three-coin type set of the King George VI coins from Newfoundland. Of course, Newfoundland is now part of Canada, but since the time of Queen Victoria, they have issued their own coinage. Because the population of Newfoundland is so small, the mintages on these coins are also rather small and it is a country that no longer issues its own coins. You get the bronze Penny plus the Silver 5 Cents and the 10 Cents of King George VI, all issued under the name of Newfoundland. The coins are in Fine or better condition and we think the three coins make a nice type collection of their coinage. They don’t make coins of Newfoundland any more, but we have the set for your collection. The history behind the coins is most interesting and so are the coins themselves.
