During World War II Silver was not that important for the War Effort, so they still struck our coins in Silver. The largest denomination struck at the time was the Halfcrown, Two Shillings and Sixpence. It was both the biggest and highest denomination struck during World War II. We have managed to put together complete date sets of the Silver George VI Halfcrown as issued in World War II. That means you'll get the 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945 King George VI Silver Halfcrowns. We don’t believe that we have ever offered this collection before. The Halfcrown was a large and valuable coin at the time; name me any youngster who wouldn’t have been over the moon to own one. You are getting the opportunity to own all the dates 1939-1945 issued during World War II. The coins are in selected circulated condition.

Russia, 100 Roubles 1910 Catherine The Great Crisp P13 AU/ Unc

Superb examples of the 100 rouble note dated 1910 featuring a portrait of Empress Catherine the Great on the back and in a fabulous watermark. (P13)These were amongst the last notes issued under the Russian Tsars and measure approximately 10 inches x 5 inches. At the time they were issued they were worth 4 ounces of gold which is why those fleeing the revolution stuffed their suitcases with them. While most notes we see are in circulated condition this group is from an original block and are in wonderful condition grading AU/Unc. Wonderful notes

Picture of Edward VII, Halfcrown Fine

Edward VII, Halfcrown Fine

Edward VII had a very short reign, 1901-1910, because his Mother, Queen Victoria, lived so long. Much of his coinage is difficult to get and in some cases rather expensive. All of his silver coins were struck in Sterling Silver and a crown was only issued in 1902 for his Coronation. So we offer the Sterling Silver Halfcrown, the largest denomination silver coin stuck for regular usage. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful crowned shield on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but no rare dates are included. Available here in Fine condition.

Picture of Victoria, Double Florin 1887-1890 Extremely Fine

Victoria, Double Florin 1887-1890 Extremely Fine

When Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee in 1887, she not only allowed them to change her portrait but also to issue a new denomination. That was the Double Florin which was equivalent to Four Shillings. It was almost crownsized and struck in Sterling Silver. Today we have an equivalent coin, but we call it a 20 Pence. Shows what time and inflation will do to money. The Double Florin was also known as the Bar-Maids ruin. After she had had a few drinks, the bar-maid would often give change for a Crown and not a Double Florin. That Shilling difference was a lot of money and came directly from the Bar-Maids wages. This Double Florin was only made from 1887-1890. In the past we have offered the Queen Victoria Double Florin in Fine and even in Very Fine, now we can offer them in Extremely Fine condition. These are super coins and most are dated 1887, remember they are struck in Sterling Silver and they have the Jubilee Head portrait of the Queen.
