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.

George VI, Farthing 1937-48 BU

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 1937-48 issue in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Dates will be of our choice, one coin only issued between 1937-1948 but in BU condition.

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.

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.
