George VI, Penny (Rare) 1950 Very Fine

The two lowest mintages of the old Penny coin were struck in 1950 and 1951 during the reign of King George VI. In 1950 they only made 240,000 coins that means for £1000 you could have bought all the 1950 Pennies they ever made. Until very recently numismatists have always thought that all the 1950 Pennies were shipped to Bermuda for use after World War II. Now we know that this information is wrong. They were also sent to the Bahamas in the West Indies. Now, these coins were actually used in circulation, because after the War there was a great shortage of small change. The island has a very salty atmosphere and thus the coins are very scarce in the higher grades. The coins on offer are in Very Fine condition and remember they only struck a total of 240,000 1950 Pennies for circulation.

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown 1964 BU

The 1964 Halfcrown has always been one of the most difficult to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Even at the time of issue, it was not an easy coin to find in top grade. If you are missing this coin or you know someone born or married in 1964 then this coin would make a great gift. Supplies are limited, don’t miss out.

Elizabeth II, £1 1986 Silver Proof

Richard came across these two 1986 Silver Proof British coins the other day while going through the vaults. They are the 1986 Sterling Silver Proof Pounds, this is the older design when coins were all one metal through and through. The other coin is the same coin but a Piedfort or double the normal thickness, double the amount of Sterling Silver. These Piedforts are known as the VIP edition. These have the Northern Ireland reverse, the reverse used in 1986. At auctions we have seen prices for these modern Royal Mint Proofs show very strong results. We know most dealers do not have a stock, so probably that these early Royal Mint silver coins will really start to be collected. Get them while you can, we have not increased our prices.
