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, 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.

George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1937-48 BU

By the 1930s, the commonly used pennies were rather unpopular with businesses, silver Threepence was also unpopular. So a new coin was introduced - a larger brass version of the three pence coin. The new brass Threepence was Britain’s first twelve-sided coin, which proved very popular and its design inspired the new £1 coin in 2017. Here we present the 1937-48 Threepence in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

1946 Threepence in Brass (Scarce) Circulated_obv

George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1946 Circulated - Scarce

The Brass Threepence was first issued in 1937 and last issued for circulation in 1967. What we consider to be the Key date of the series is the King George VI 1946 issue. It has always been difficult to find in this country because, although struck by the Royal Mint, the coins were sent overseas for use in the Caribbean. We have recently purchased a nice group of these coins which grade in Fine condition.

George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1948 Fine

Many of the King George VI dates of brass threepences are Scarce and difficult to find, as most of the mintage was sent to our colonies overseas. The 1948 Brass Threepence is no exception. I believe that most of them went to the West Indies; after all even during a war the population needs coins to spend. The brass threepence while a short series (1937-1967) is also one of our most popular series. The new pound coin is based on this coin. The 1948 brass threepences are in Fine condition and difficult to find, many date collectors are missing this coin.

George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1950 Fine

The brass threepence was first issued under King George VI and there are a number of difficult or Scarce dates. 1950 is one of those. It was issued after the end of World War II and towards the end of the King’s reign. The coins are in Fine condition and if you know someone born in 1950 this coin would make an excellent gift. The bare head of the King on one side and the thrift plant on the other side.

George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1951 Circulated

The brass threepence was first issued in 1937 and last issued in 1967. 1951 is one of the scarce dates of the George VI issue. Each coin is in selected circulated condition and is of course scarce and difficult to find. It has taken some time to put this group together, many of the coins while struck in this country, were shipped overseas to help with a shortage of small coins.
