We believe the bronze coins of King George VI are much underappreciated. The farthings are easy to get, but try and get nice Pennies and Halfpennies. Here we are offering a George VI Penny from 1947 in uncirculated condition.
In 1949 the Royal Mint changed the legend on our coinage, IND IMP was omitted. This was due to India gaining its independence from this country and there was no longer a reason to have it on the legend. There were only two more pennies after this issue and both of these are Rare and very expensive, especially in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. If you want an important type coin, at a price that won’t break the bank, then this 1949 Penny without IND IMP is the coin for you. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and came from a bag that was found in a bank in the United States. They had been there since 1949! These are priced right to entice and delight you and at our price, it might be interesting to buy a couple of extra pieces for trading with other collectors.
Unlike the smaller denominations, the classic penny design featuring a seated Britannia, first introduced in 1860 and would continue throughout George VI’s reign. Here we offer the 1949 Penny in Brilliant Unirculated condition.
Mark also had a small box of the Rare 1950 George VI Penny, it has a mintage of just 240,000 coins and they were all released overseas. Normally we sell this coin in Very Fine for £29.50, but the coins Mark had were Good Very Fine – Extremely Fine. For 20 collectors only you can have one for the same price as a Very Fine. This is a Rare Penny and in better than usual condition but at the price, we would usually charge for a lesser grade coin.
The set Includes the old large bronze Pennies of Queen Victoria, Edward VII, George V, George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II.
