Picture of Victoria, Jubilee Head Halfcrown VG, 1887-1892

Victoria, Jubilee Head Halfcrown VG, 1887-1892

In 1887 Queen Victoria finally allowed her portrait on the coinage to be changed. It was 50 years that she kept her Young Head portrait on the coins. The Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence was perhaps the most used large silver coin at the time. Because of course, a Halfcrown was a lot of money then. You have the Queen on the obverse with that silly little crown placed on her head. She hated it because it looked like a toy rather than the real thing. The reverse has a crowned coat of arms within a garter of roses. These Halfcrowns are struck in Sterling Silver and we have them in two grades. Dates will be of our choice, but they were only made from 1887-1892.

Picture of Straits Settlements, Edward VIII Cupro-nickel

Straits Settlements, Edward VIII Cupro-nickel

This Straits Settlements Edward VIII piece is one of the more difficult to get in cupro-nickel. We know this better than anyone else, because Richard had them struck. We found it the other day in a storeroom, supplies are limited and all are Uncirculated.

Victoria, Copper Halfpenny Very Fine

When Queen Victoria came to the throne the first thing they had to do was strike coins with her portrait on them. One of my favourites and the most difficult denomination to get was the Halfpenny. In those days halfpennies were struck between 1838 -1860 on thick planchets of copper not the thin bronze coins they would issue later. You have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side and the seated figure of Britannia on the other side. We have a few and I do mean a few of the high grade examples to offer you. Supplies are limited and this is, after all, the most difficult denomination to get, especially in high grades.
