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, 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.

George VI, Crown (Festival of Britain) 1951 Extremely Fine

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.

George VI, Crown (Proposed Visit to New Zealand) 1949 Good EF

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

Picture of George VI, Halfcrown 1944 Choice Uncirculated

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.
