George V, Florin 1st Type (.925 Silver) Very Good - Fine

As most collectors realize the Florin or Two Shillings is the most difficult denomination to find. The Sterling Silver coinage of King George V was only issued from 1911-to 1919, so they are even more difficult to find than most. The dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates you will be sent. The coins are in specially selected Very Good - Fine condition and are over 100 years old.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1967 Unc

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.

George VI, Penny (Rare) 1950 Very Fine

The two lowest mintages of the old Penny coin were struck in 1950 and 1951 during the reign of King George VI. In 1950 they only made 240,000 coins that means for £1000 you could have bought all the 1950 Pennies they ever made. Until very recently numismatists have always thought that all the 1950 Pennies were shipped to Bermuda for use after World War II. Now we know that this information is wrong. They were also sent to the Bahamas in the West Indies. Now, these coins were actually used in circulation, because after the War there was a great shortage of small change. The island has a very salty atmosphere and thus the coins are very scarce in the higher grades. The coins on offer are in Very Fine condition and remember they only struck a total of 240,000 1950 Pennies for circulation.
