Australia, George V Silver Set

Australia did not have its own silver coins until King Edward VII and then that was for only one year: 1910. It wasn’t until 1911 that silver coins were struck under King George V on a regular basis. It has taken us two years to put these type sets. As they are type sets, the dates within each set will vary, but they were all struck between 1911-1936 and they were all struck in good Silver. The coins are Threepence, Sixpence, Shilling, and Florin all George V and all silver. The coins will grade Very Good and are in collectable condition. Please remember that we have very limited stock available.

Canada, George V Large & Small Cents

Governments worldwide are issuing more and more paper money; they call it QE or Quantitative Easing. We call it making our money worth less and less and if you really need an example, how about Germany in the early 1920s? At that time money became of so little value that someone saw a basket of banknotes, they left the notes and stole the basket! In Canada, during the reign of King George V, we have an excellent example of what inflation can do. We have the Canadian Large Cent of King George V, issued 1911-1920. Then in 1920 they reduced the size greatly and kept this smaller size until 1936. We offer the Large and Small-sized 'Penny' or One Cent coins of King George V, so you can show your friends what inflation can do to coins. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen here… Large size cent issued from 1911-1920 and the small cent issued from 1920-1936
