Mark also had a small box of the Rare 1950 George VI Penny, it has a mintage of just 240,000 coins and they were all released overseas. Normally we sell this coin in Very Fine for £29.50, but the coins Mark had were Good Very Fine – Extremely Fine. For 20 collectors only you can have one for the same price as a Very Fine. This is a Rare Penny and in better than usual condition but at the price, we would usually charge for a lesser grade coin.

Elizabeth II, 20 Pence 1982 Piedfort

In 1982 the Royal Mint introduced a new denomination, the 20 Pence Piece. As most collectors are aware, it was in fact not a new denomination, but a recreation of the Double Florin which was issued under Queen Victoria from 1887-1890. This coin had many sides and the public immediately liked it. The Royal Mint issued a small quantity of these coins in Sterling Silver Proof but they were double the normal thickness and are called a Piedfort. This is the first Piedfort that the Royal Mint allowed collectors to buy and has proved to be very popular. They are struck in Proof Sterling Silver and come in a blue Royal Mint case of issue.

George V, Penny (Kings Norton) 1918 Fine

1918 Kings Norton Penny in Fine. In the reign of King George V the Royal Mint ran out of capacity to strike enough coins for everyday usage, so they contracted out the minting of some Pennies. One of the two Mints they used was the Kings Norton Mint, unlike the Birmingham Mint, the Kings Norton Mint had never struck coins for them before. They only made pennies for the Mint in 1918 and 1919 and all of these coins carry the ‘KN’ mint mark by the left of the date. Of the two mints, the Kings Norton is by far the most difficult to get.
