George V, Shilling, Sterling Silver VG-F

The first coins of King George V, were struck in 925 fine Sterling Silver 1911-1919. After that date they lowered the fineness of the silver to only 500 fine silver. I have a nice little group of these Sterling Silver Shillings in Very Good - Fine condition. Not by date but again by type. Of course the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you. When you joined the Army or Navy in those days you were given a Shilling, which became known as ‘The King’s Shilling’. Many of these coins were struck during World War I and thus have even more history to offer.

16x Folding Magnifying Glass

This is the type of magnifying glass that dealers take with them when they go out to look at coins. It is a 16 x Wide Field folding magnifying glass. The way to use it is to put the glass near your eye and then bring the thing you want to see into the glass until it is focused. These come to us from the United States. The quality is very good and it folds into itself to protect the lens.

George VI, Halfcrown 1944 Choice Uncirculated

Of course, 1944 is an important date for many reasons largely regarding the events of world war II. At that time our Monarch was King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. Our coinage was still being struck in Silver as this was less useful to the War Effort than cupronickel in producing munitions. The largest denomination struck in 1944 was the Half Crown, Two Shillings and Sixpence. The coins on offer are at the top end of the grading scale and are very nice examples - choice uncirculated. The coins have seen no wear, but of course over the past 74 years they will have toned a little, but then again haven’t we all? Nice coins that will please and delight you.

Elizabeth II, Half Sovereign 2007 BU

Of all the modern British gold on the market, the most underappreciated is the Queen Elizabeth II Half Sovereign in Uncirculated. Yes, we said Uncirculated and not Proof. The Proof coins were all saved by collectors, the Brilliant Uncirculated coins were just not put away. We have bought a nice group of Brilliant Uncirculated examples. Try and find them elsewhere and you will see what we mean about them being underappreciated and not saved for collectors. Each coin is struck in 22ct Gold by the Royal Mint and is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, but supplies are limited.
