It was during the reign of Queen Anne that England and Scotland finally got together. Queen Anne ruled from 1702-1714, the coins struck from Scottish silver were made from 1707-1709. We can offer this fascinating coin in Very Good condition. They are struck in sterling silver and have the bust of Queen Anne on the obverse and four crowned shields of arms on the reverse. In the reign of Queen Anne a Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence was a lot of money, as it was just before the wave of inflation was to hit this country.

This nice little copper Half Cent was issued under King George V for the island nation of Ceylon, now Sri Lanka. Because it’s surrounded by water most coins of Ceylon come corroded. That’s why we are so happy to offer you these coins.They are NOT corroded but rather in Uncirculated condition with touches of lustre. You have the bust of King George V on the coin and they are now 95 years old and in Uncirculated condition. What more could you ask for? From a small hoard we bought from an old time coin dealer.
In 1998 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 50 Pence for the 25th anniversary of our membership in the European Union. Our membership has now ended of course. This is the old large sized 50 Pence with a table with 12 stars representing the 12 member nations. The coin has the Rank-Broadley portrait of the Queen on the obverse. These coins are in Uncirculated condition and it is a coin that you almost never see. We have priced them at what we think is a reasonable price, not the crazy prices that some marketers are asking.
