Victoria, Jubilee Head Crown Fine

We recently bought a nice group of Queen Victoria Jubilee Head Crowns issued 1887-1892. They have the Jubilee Head of the Queen on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. They are the largest silver coin struck for Queen Victoria and are struck in Sterling Silver. These coins are in Fine condition; they were carefully selected, so there are no defects, no scratches no edge knocks. Nicely well-graded coins for your collection. We have been looking around and we're amazed at just how much certain companies are charging for these coins. At Coincraft if we make a good buy, you make a good buy. Remember that all of these coins have been specially selected and they are Sterling Silver.

Victoria, Jubilee Head Crown Very Fine

As most collectors know, Queen Victoria kept her youthful portrait on coinage from 1837 until 1887. It was only later in 1887, when she was celebrating her Golden Jubilee, that she allowed the portrait to be changed. This new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head portrait. We have Fine examples of the largest Silver coin issued at the time, the Crown or Five Shilling piece. Normally they come in Very Good condition, our examples are in Fine quality, which will please most collectors. Dates will be of our choice, but this Jubilee Head Crown was only issued from 1887-1892. They are struck in Sterling Silver and are above average for the coin. Our supplies are limited.

Victoria, Jubilee Head Crown Very Good

In the long reign of Queen Victoria, the second longest reign of any British Monarch, the last two types of crowns issued were the Jubilee Head Crown (1887-1892) and the Old Head Crown (1893-1900). Here we present the Jubilee Head Crown in Sterling Silver. The Crown is the largest and most valuable silver coin struck in her reign. The Jubilee Head Crown was only struck from 1887-1892. In those days a Crown was a lot of money, not many of us would have been able to own a crown. The Crowns are struck in Sterling Silver and are in Very Good condition and at least 120 years old!

Picture of Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Extremely Fine

Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Extremely Fine

In 1887 Queen Victoria allowed her portrait to be changed from the Young Head to the Jubilee Head portrait. The coins were struck in Sterling Silver and the most difficult denomination to find is the Florin. Don’t forget the Florin as a denomination only came into being in 1849. The coins on offer are in Extremely Fine condition, which is a very high grade and based on some of the prices I have seen being asked at coin fairs, are very expensive. Well our coins are not that highly priced, we have been building up our little inventory for a couple of years and they were bought right, so we are going to sell them right. But the Florin is the most difficult denomination to get, especially in Extremely Fine condition.

Victoria, Jubilee Head Halfcrown Extremely Fine

In 1881, Queen Victoria finally allowed the design of her coinage to be changed after 50 years. Maybe because a 67-year-old woman does look a little different from a 17-year-old girl. Never-the-less in 1887 to celebrate her Golden Jubilee, she allowed a new portrait to be used on her coinage, this, of course, became known as the Jubilee Head design. The Halfcrown with this Jubilee Head design was only issued from 1887 until 1892 when the design was changed again. The Queen hated this Jubilee Head design because it showed her with a tiny crown on her head, almost like a toy. The coins were struck in Sterling Silver and we think the design is attractive. We can offer the Halfcrown in Extremely Fine condition, which will satisfy most collectors. The coins on offer are the first year of issue (1887). Nice high-grade coins at prices that won’t hurt your pocket, and remember, these coins are now over 125 years old!

Victoria, Shilling 1887 About Uncirculated

We have a nice little box full of Queen Victoria 1887 Jubilee Head Shillings. These are coins that we would call About Uncirculated and we guess most coin dealers would call Uncirculated. As they have come in, in collections and purchases over the counter, we have placed them in my little box. They are almost nice enough to be called Uncirculated, but they are too nice to just sell as Extremely Fine, if you know what we mean. They are struck in Sterling Silver and this design was only used for two years, 1887 and 1888. The coins are very nice and we think you will like the price as well, but remember it is only a little box and supplies are limited…

Victoria, Shilling Choice Uncirculated 1887

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 shilling in choice uncirculated grade.

1896 Silver Crown_obv

Victoria, Silver Crown 1896 Very Good

There is nothing special about 1896, except perhaps it was the year before Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It was the largest silver coin issued at the time, the Crown or 5 Shilling Piece. You have the Old Head of Queen Victoria on the obverse and St.George and the Dragon on the reverse. These large (38mm) coins were struck in Sterling Silver, which means 925 parts of pure silver per 1000 parts. The coins on offer are in Very Good or better condition and are some of the last coins ever struck for this long-serving Monarch. They are now 121 years old and classified as an antique.
