George VI, Florin 1947 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 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.

George VI, Shilling 1949 (English reverse) Gem Unc

It was in the reign of King George VI that all silver was removed from our coinage and replaced with what we use today, cupronickel. But what many collectors don’t realise is that the cupronickel coins of George VI in choice condition are much rarer to get than choice silver coins of George VI. We purchased a group of the 1949 English Shillings, put away in 1949, and are they super! We have classed them Choice Uncirculated and Gem Uncirculated, the worst coin is far superior to what you see on the market and the finest coins are just about as good as you will ever see. The current catalogue price on this coin is £35.00 in just Uncirculated condition and all of these are much nicer than that. A chance to buy a Choice George VI 1949 English cupronickel Shilling at a price that will please you…
