This is the complete date set of Queen Elizabeth II Florins. You get every date from 1953 to 1967 the last Florin ever issued for circulation. That includes the one year type 1953, the scarce and rare dates 1954, 1958 and 1959. All coins are in selected circulated condition and remember the newest coin is now over 50 years old. If previous demand is anything to go by, this set of Florins will fly out. After all the Florin is the most difficult denomination to get.
We have managed to put together a few collections of all the English type Shillings issued by Queen Elizabeth II for circulation. That includes every date from 1953 to 1966, when the denomination was stopped. You get all the dates, scarce or rare, including 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965 and 1966. We no longer provide a Sandhill insert as this now adds about £6-£7 to the price and most of our collectors put them in albums anyway. All coins are in Fine or better condition and include the 1953 Coronation issue. A nice collection and not easy to put together today.
During the reign of Queen Elizabeth II the Shilling came to an end. It was originally issued in the reign of King Edward VI and ended in 1966. There were two different types of shillings issued each year- one with the English reverse and one with the Scottish reverse. The Scottish coins are rarer as they struck far less of them. All coins are in selected circulated condition and you get one coin for each date 1953-1966. These sets are not easy to put together today.
In 1813 they struck the last Guinea ever, it was shortly to be replaced by the Sovereign. They were struck to pay English troops advancing into France and thus called The Military Guinea. This is a beautiful Proof rendition of that last ever ‘Military’ Guinea of 1813. You have the bust of King George III on the obverse wearing a laurel wreath the reverse has a crowned coat of arms. It has been gold plated and comes in a protective capsule. This is the first time that we have been able to offer these large paperweights. They were made years ago and ‘lost’ in our friend’s warehouse until now. They will never be made again and we think they are fantastic.
