George VI, Silver Sixpence 1942

This Silver Sixpence was issued during World War II in 1942. Believe it or not, during the War, other metals were of more use than silver, so they used silver in our coinage. You have the bare head portrait of King George VI on the obverse and crowned initials on the reverse. If nothing else, this would make an excellent small present for someone getting married. They are in selected circulated condition, struck during World War II and struck in silver.

Picture of George VI, Florin Collection 1947-1951 Cupronickel

George VI, Florin Collection 1947-1951 Cupronickel

In 1947 the Royal Mint removed all Silver from our coinage and it was now to be struck in cupro-nickel. The 1947 and the 1948 issues had the normal legend on the coins, but in 1947 India became independent and so that in 1949 changed that legend. The Florin of King George VI issued in cupronickel was struck in 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, and 1951. There were no coins struck for circulation in 1952 because that was the year that the King died. The next Florin to be issued was in 1953 for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. We offer the complete King George VI cupronickel Florin Collection for only £12.50. They come in a snap-lock plastic bag, ready to be added to your collection, all coins are in Fine condition and you get one coin of every date 1947-1951.

Elizabeth II, 1953 Coronation Proof Set

In 1953 Queen Elizabeth II had her Coronation, while she had been Queen for almost a year, this made it Official. It is Royal Mint policy only to issue coins for a new Monarch only after their Coronation. So, although Elizabeth became our Queen in 1952, no coins were issued until after her Coronation in 1953. The 1953 coins are one year only coins, as the next year they changed the legend slightly. In the Coronation Proof Set you have the Crown, Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, brass Threepence, Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing. The Proof Set comes in a maroon case, but because of the padding used in the cases, the insides are sometimes a bit spotty. The bronze coins may have toned or mellowed but the coins are all in Proof condition, as issued.
