George V, Silver Set 1920

This 1920 set of King George V Silver coins is Very Important. Firstly because the set is now over 100 years old and secondly because it is the first year that our coins were not struck in Sterling Silver but in 500 fine silver. The Government decided to reduce the silver content of our coins from 925 or Sterling Silver to 500 fine silver and that was that. This was the first time in living memory that our coins were not struck in Sterling Silver. This is a very important and significant set of coins. You get the King George V Silver Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence, and Threepence, all the silver coins that were struck that year. Remember that these were the first coins struck in 500 fine silver and the last was in 1946 under King George VI. All coins are circulated but even though they are now over 100 years old, the coins have been carefully selected. There is no special packaging, as we believe our collectors want coins and not having to pay for fancy packaging. That way we can keep the price down for you! We have been putting these sets together for the past two years in anticipation of this important year. Supplies are limited and you may see one or two of the coins being offered elsewhere, but not at our price and not the complete collection!
