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.

Victoria, Farthing (Old Head) VG-F

In our opinion, the Old Head or Widow Head but of Queen Victoria is the most underappreciated of the three different busts made during her reign. Here we offer the Old Head Farthing in VG-F. Dates will be of our choice.

Elizabeth II, Florin 1967 Brilliant Unc

Elizabeth II, The Last 1967 Florin. Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1967 the Royal Mint issued its last ever Florin for circulation. Although it had an exact decimal equivalent, the 10p, they decided to stop making them. As most collectors know the florin is the most difficult of the denominations to get. We can offer the last ever, the 1967 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for just £4.00. At one time a number of years ago, we had to pay that price to get them. But a fortunate find, in our basement, allows us to offer them to you. Limit of three coins per collector and well worth having.

Picture of George V, Sixpence (Year of Three Kings) 1936 Fine

George V, Sixpence (Year of Three Kings) 1936 Fine

These 1936 silver sixpences have the portrait of King George V on them, but they have a far more interesting history. King George V died and his son became King Edward VIII and most of these Sixpences were struck during the reign of King Edward VIII. In December of that year Edward abdicated and his brother became King George VI. While the portrait is that of King George V who knows who was actually on the throne when they were struck. It is an interesting conundrum which will never be figured out.
