George VI, Florin 1942 Fine

Of all the denominations of King George VI, the Florin is the most difficult to obtain. The coins struck during World War II were made in 500 fine Silver. We have obtained a small group of the 1942 George VI World War II Silver Florins in Fine condition. It is both toward the end of the War and the end of our silver coinage. The coins are in Fine condition, nothing special but rather nice.

1951 Crown (Festival of Britain) Unc_obv

George VI, Crown (Festival of Britain) 1951 Unc

In 1937 they issued a silver crown for the Coronation of King George VI. No other crowns were issued during his reign as World War II was happening. Finally in 1951 to celebrate The Festival of Britain the Royal Mint issued a second George VI crown. But this time it was in cupro-nickel rather than silver. The Mint had stopped using silver in our coinage by that time. So this 1951 cupro-nickel is the only cupro-nickel crown ever issued for King George VI. It is available in Extremely Fine, Uncirculated and Prooflike Uncirculated in the original card case of issue.
