Elizabeth II, The Last Florin 1967, Brilliant Uncirculated.

Elizabeth II, The Last 1967 Florin. Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1967 the Royal Mint issued its last ever Florin for circulation. Although it had an exact decimal equivalent, the 10p, they decided to stop making them. As most collectors know the florin is the most difficult of the denominations to get. We can offer the last ever, the 1967 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for just £4.00. At one time a number of years ago, we had to pay that price to get them. But a fortunate find, in our basement, allows us to offer them to you. Limit of three coins per collector and well worth having.

Elizabeth II, Coronation Halfpenny, 1953

One of the most difficult denominations to get, in Uncirculated condition, is the Halfpenny. It was a denomination that was regularly used and thus usually comes in circulated condition. We went through one of our vault rooms and found a box of 1953 Coronation Halfpennies in Uncirculated condition taken from the Mint Set of that year; they came out of a plastic folder. Over the past 65 years, they have mellowed a bit, but they have never seen circulation. Years ago we offered the 1953 Penny and that quickly sold out; we expect the same thing to happen on the Coronation halfpenny.
