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, 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.

George VI, 1945 Florin Choice Unc_obv

George VI, Florin 1945 Choice Unc

In 1946 the Royal Mint stopped striking our coins in silver, so the 1945 issues are the penultimate silver coins to be struck. These King George VI 1945 Silver Florins are in Choice Uncirculated condition, just as nice as when they came out of the Royal Mint 78 years ago. 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 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.

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.

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.
