1940 Halfcrown_Obv

George VI 1940 Halfcrown Fine

This was the highest denomination struck during the Second World War, the Halfcrown or two shillings and sixpence. The Monarch on the coin was our wartime King, George VI. He and his family stayed in London throughout the bombing. You have the bare head of the King on one side and a crowned coat of arms on the other side. They were struck in silver as the base metals were far more useful in the war effort. Each Silver Halfcrown is dated 1940 – exactly 80 years old and they are in Fine condition. They make great gifts for someone born in 1940 or a military collector.

Picture of George VI,  Shilling 1949 (English reverse) Gem Unc

George VI, Shilling 1949 (English reverse) Gem Unc

It was in the reign of King George VI that all silver was removed from our coinage and replaced with what we use today, cupronickel. But what many collectors don’t realise is that the cupronickel coins of George VI in choice condition are much rarer to get than choice silver coins of George VI. We purchased a group of the 1949 English Shillings, put away in 1949, and are they super! We have classed them Choice Uncirculated and Gem Uncirculated, the worst coin is far superior to what you see on the market and the finest coins are just about as good as you will ever see. The current catalogue price on this coin is £35.00 in just Uncirculated condition and all of these are much nicer than that. A chance to buy a Choice George VI 1949 English cupronickel Shilling at a price that will please you…

Picture of George VI,  Sixpence 1945 Gem BU

George VI, Sixpence 1945 Gem BU

This coin was struck the year before the last silver Sixpence ever was struck, so the 1945 Sixpence is the Penultimate Silver Sixpence. It was issued under King George VI and just after the end of World War II. There is something about a coin struck in silver, they just look and feel great. These coins were put away in 1945 and therefore are in outstanding condition. We have them in the two highest grades you can get; this particular one is the Gem Uncirculated variant. We know you will love them.

George VI, 1947-51 Shillings Scottish Type

George VI, 1947-51 Shillings Scottish Type

The shillings of George VI presented here were issued with the Scottish reverse type, and depict a crowned lion seated on top of a crown holding a sword and sceptre with the date divided in two, the legend above, and with the denomination below. All struck between 1947-1951. 5 coins in total that show the change of legend that occurred 1949 when the mint had to remove ‘IND IMP’ because the monarch was no longer Emperor of India. These were also the last Shillings struck in the reign of George VI as he died early in 1952.

Picture of George VI, Crown (Coronation) 1937 Extremely Fine

George VI, Crown (Coronation) 1937 Extremely Fine

In 1937 King George VI was finally crowned and he had his Coronation. It had been a turbulent period with his father having died and his brother abdicating. He went through a lot and worse was to come in the shape of World War II. He did a splendid job considering how much pressure he was under. For his Coronation, the Royal Mint struck a special Crown in silver. Because of the war, this would be King George VI’s only silver crown to be issued. We have offered them in a lower grade recently, but a dealer sold us a nice group in Extremely Fine and that is what we are offering you now. The 1937 King George VI Silver Coronation Crown in Extremely Fine. These coins will all have a lustre and only the smallest amount of actual wear. Nice coins for your date or type collection.

Picture of George VI, Crown (Festival of Britain) 1951 Prooflike cupronickel (boxed)

George VI, Crown (Festival of Britain) 1951 Prooflike cupronickel (boxed)

In 1951, to celebrate the end of austerity after World War II, the British Government held a ‘Festival of Britain’ on the South Bank in London. They also issued a special Crown for King George VI, only the second crown struck for this monarch in this country. The first was struck for his Coronation in 1937 and that was half silver, this second and last crown was struck in Prooflike cupronickel. You have the bare head of the King on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. This is supplied with one of the original card cases that the crown was issued in 1951. The coins are Uncirculated but the card cases have seen a little bit of wear. After all, even a card case was a luxury at that time. Some marketing companies are charging £30.00 plus £4.95 extra for a card case. We think our price is a bit more reasonable.

1951 Crown (Festival of Britain) Unc_obv

George VI, Crown (Festival of Britain) 1951 Unc

In 1937 they issued a silver crown for the Coronation of King George VI. No other crowns were issued during his reign as World War II was happening. Finally in 1951 to celebrate The Festival of Britain the Royal Mint issued a second George VI crown. But this time it was in cupro-nickel rather than silver. The Mint had stopped using silver in our coinage by that time. So this 1951 cupro-nickel is the only cupro-nickel crown ever issued for King George VI. It is available in Extremely Fine, Uncirculated and Prooflike Uncirculated in the original card case of issue.

In 1949 it was proposed that King George VI would visit New Zealand, but it never happened!

George VI, Farthing 1942 Unc

We have just bought a hoard of 1942 World War II Farthings in Uncirculated condition. They were issued under King George VI and all have part original lustre. They were put away at the time, but have mellowed over the past 76 years. No wear just a gentle mellowing of the lustre. 1942 was at the height of the Second World War and the Farthing with the wren on it, was the smallest denomination issued at the time. They are struck, in bronze rather than copper and have the bare head of the King on the obverse. Normally we would charge considerably more for this coin, but if we make a good buy, then our customers make a good buy. It is only fair that way. So for this issue only, or until sold out, you can own a 1942 King George VI Farthing in Uncirculated condition and at this price; we think they are very attractive to the collector.
