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.

We have been offering the difficult to find 1964 Halfcrown in Uncirculated, which we bought in New Zealand. Now we have bought a small group of the 1964 Florin in Uncirculated which is much rarer than the Halfcrown. These coins were found in this country not 12,000 miles away. A very small number are available and these are Difficult to find. The 1964 Florin in Uncirculated is not a coin that you will find everyday, because the Florin is the most difficult denomination to find. While they last you can own one for just £8.95 but supplies are very limited.

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1967 Unc

In 1967 the Royal Mint issued the last Halfcrown for circulation a denomination that had been going since the reign of King Edward VI. For those of you too young to remember, a Halfcrown was Two Shillings and Sixpence. These were the largest circulating coins issued at the time and had a decimal equivalent of 12.5p. They are dated 1967 and are in Uncirculated condition. At that time you felt lucky if you were given a Halfcrown at Christmas as a gift. On the front is the youthful portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and on the back is a crowned shield with E R at the sides with the denomination and the date.
