1949-52 Farthing_Obv

George VI, Farthing 1949-52 Unc

In 1937, the farthing went through its first major redesign since it’s introduction in 1672 under Charles II. For the first time in 264 years, Britannia was to be replaced on the reverse by one of Britain’s smallest birds – the Wren. This new design, first introduced on the Edward VIII pattern was also adopted on the farthings of George VI. Here we present the 1949-52 in Uncirculated condition.

George VI, Florin 1942 Fine_obv

George VI, Florin 1942 Fine

In 1942 in the middle of World War II our coinage was still being struck in Silver. That was because cupronickel was more useful for the War effort than Silver. This continued on until just after the War when the last silver coins were struck in 1946. We offer the King George VI Florin of 1942, the Florin is of course the second largest denomination made and the most difficult denomination to get. All coins are struck in 500 fine Silver and are in Fine condition. A World War II Florin of 1942, well worth having for yourcollection.

As most collectors know, the Florin is the most difficult denomination to get, especially in the higher grades. And Choice Uncirculated is about as high a grade as you will find. These coins are Choice Uncirculated, which means a minimum number of bag marks. Treat yourself, the penultimate Silver Florin and in wonderful condition.

George VI, Florin 1945 Uncirculated

The Florin as a denomination was first issued only in 1848, under Queen Victoria. This 1945 Silver Florin is the penultimate year of issue of any Florin in Silver and as such we think that it is a very important coin for your collection. It was struck under King George VI. The coins on offer are in very high grades, About Uncirculated and Uncirculated. As most collectors know the Florin is the most difficult denomination to find, we don’t know why this is, but it just is. The coins are beautiful and struck in 500 fine silver, you will be proud to have one in your collection. Remember, the year after in 1849 was the last year ever that our coins were struck in silver.

George VI, Florin 1947 About Unc

1947 was the first time ever the Royal Mint struck circulation coins in cupro-nickel and not silver. The most difficult denomination was the Florin. This new coinage only lasted for two years, as India got its independence, they had to change the legend in 1949. The coin on offer here is in About Uncirculated condition, which for a cupronickel coin that is now over 70 years old is very high indeed. Supplies are limited and the Florin is the most difficult denomination.

George VI, Florin 1948 About Uncirculated

The coinage of George VI is very important. First they removed the silver from our coins, then India became independent and they had to change the legend on British coins and new designs were issued. The ‘new’ cupro-nickel coins of King George VI were only issued for two years 1947 and 1948 before the legend had to be changed. We offer the Florin, the scarcest denomination of 1948 in About Uncirculated. Please remember that this type coin was only issued for two years. These coins are not easy to find in such high grades.

Picture of George VI, Florin Collection 1947-1951 Cupronickel

George VI, Florin Collection 1947-1951 Cupronickel

In 1947 the Royal Mint removed all Silver from our coinage and it was now to be struck in cupro-nickel. The 1947 and the 1948 issues had the normal legend on the coins, but in 1947 India became independent and so that in 1949 changed that legend. The Florin of King George VI issued in cupronickel was struck in 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, and 1951. There were no coins struck for circulation in 1952 because that was the year that the King died. The next Florin to be issued was in 1953 for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. We offer the complete King George VI cupronickel Florin Collection for only £12.50. They come in a snap-lock plastic bag, ready to be added to your collection, all coins are in Fine condition and you get one coin of every date 1947-1951.
