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.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Farthing 1953 Brilliant Unc

Elizabeth II, Farthing 1953 Brilliant Unc

In 1953 the Royal Mint issued new coins for the new Queen, Elizabeth II. But the legend was different from all the coins that were to come, so that the 1953 coins and the Farthing in particular are one year type coins. This is important because there were only 4 dates of Elizabeth II Farthings ever issued, 1956 being the last date of issue. Because the 1953 Coronation Farthing is a one year type, it is also the most difficult one to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We bought a group that had been put away in 1953, some 65 years ago and had lain undisturbed until now. Add a one year type, 1953 Coronation Farthing in Brilliant Uncirculated to your collection, they are not easy to get.

Picture of Edward VII, Penny 1904 Very Good

Edward VII, Penny 1904 Very Good

King Edward VII was the son of Queen Victoria and because she ruled for so long, his rule was rather short. In fact, the coins of Edward VII were only issued from 1902 to1910, but that also means that all of his coins are over 100 years old. We are offering the bronze Pennies of King Edward VII by date. All coins are in Very Good condition with the details and the date clearly legible. You have the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful seated Britannia on the other side.

1946 Threepence in Brass (Scarce) Circulated_obv

George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1946 Circulated - Scarce

The Brass Threepence was first issued in 1937 and last issued for circulation in 1967. What we consider to be the Key date of the series is the King George VI 1946 issue. It has always been difficult to find in this country because, although struck by the Royal Mint, the coins were sent overseas for use in the Caribbean. We have recently purchased a nice group of these coins which grade in Fine condition.
