George VI, Crown (Proposed Visit to New Zealand) 1949 Good EF

In 1949 it was proposed that King George VI would visit New Zealand, but it never happened! This was a bit of a problem as the New Zealand Government had gone to the trouble of issuing a Silver Crown! This is the ONLY New Zealand Crown for King George VI. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a Silver Fern on the other. Struck in 500 fine Silver in 1949, it has a mintage of only 200,000 pieces. We can offer the ONLY George VI Silver Crown of New Zealand in Good Extremely Fine condition. It is a very difficult crown to get and this one piece represents a complete type denomination of this Monarch for this country.

South Africa, 5 Shillings (Crown) 1952. Choice UNC

Because of World War II the only Silver Crown issued for King George VI in this country was his Coronation issue of 1937. But South Africa issued Silver crowns for this monarch from 1947 until he died in 1952. This is the last George VI Silver Crown ever to be issued. This 1952 South African Silver Crown is also very special, as it is South Africa’s first-ever commemorative coin. It was issued for the 300th Anniversary of the founding of Cape Town. On the reverse is a wonderful old sailing ship and the dates 1652-1952. Struck in 500 fine Silver, the examples that we have on offer are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition, which is about as fine a quality as you can get. A friend in South Africa says that there are no crowns available there, so perhaps our offer is even just a little bit better.

Ireland, 1968 Mint Set

Ireland, 1968 Mint Set

One of our contacts found a hoard of 1968 Irish pre-Euro Mint Sets. Most of them went back to Ireland and the rest we were allowed to buy. The set comes in a green card holder inside a vinyl wallet. It contains Irish pre-euro coins in Uncirculated condition, but over the past 50 years the coins have mellowed a little. This 1968 Mint Set contains the 1d, 3d, 6d, Shilling and Florin. 1968 is an important set, it is the closest to the changeover to Euro coins. The set comes in a wallet and the coins are Uncirculated but may have mellowed over the years.
