George VI, Florin, 1947 About Uncirculated

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 Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1967 Uncirculated

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1967 Uncirculated

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.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Coronation Crown Extremely Fine, 1953

Elizabeth II, Coronation Crown Extremely Fine, 1953

It is now 65 years since Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II. I have been privileged to visit Tree Tops where they have a plaque commemorating the place that Elizabeth first became Queen. This is the first Queen Elizabeth II Crown, this is the Coronation Crown, and this is the first coin to be issued for our Monarch. It shows the Queen riding on her horse and the design was much more unusual than anything issued before it. Despite being 65 years old and the first coin of our Monarch, the prices are still very reasonable, or at least our prices are. I have seen one of the marketing companies charging £30 for one and they don’t even give you the grade. We are offering these in Extremely Fine.
