Type Set of George VI's Last Coins

King George VI ruled from 1937-1952 and during his reign they totally changed our coinage. No longer were coins struck in silver, now since the end of World War they were struck in cupro-nickel. Here is a complete type set of George VI’s last coins all in selected circulated condition. You get the bronze Farthing, Halfpenny and Penny, the tombac Brass Threepence and the cupro-nickel Sixpence, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Florin and Halfcrown. All of these coins will date from 1947-1952, the dates will vary but all will be in specially selected circulated condition.

George VI, 1950 Royal Mint Proof Set

In 1950 the Royal Mint issued a Proof Set to celebrate the end of austerity. It was only the second Proof Set since the Coronation issue of 1937. The 1937 coins were struck in Silver and the 1950 coins were struck in base metal because, in 1947, all Silver was removed from our coins. The 1950 Proof Set contains the Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, Brass Threepence (Rare), Penny (Rare), Halfpenny and Farthing. The set comes in a card case. The coins have toned over the past years, but we always give you the best set that we have in stock. If the card case it too worn, then we put the set in a Sandhill Case to protect it. This set is Scarce and two of the coins are Rare

Picture of Elizabeth II, Farthing 1955 Brilliant Unc

Elizabeth II, Farthing 1955 Brilliant Unc

The 1955 Wren Farthing was the penultimate, or the next to last Farthing to ever be struck. In 1956 the last ever Farthing was struck. For some reason, this penultimate Farthing is rather difficult to find in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You have the youthful bust of Queen Elizabeth II on one side, remember that she only came to the throne in 1952, and on the other side you have a beautiful little wren. The coins on offer are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now some 63 years old. For those of you too young to remember, there were 240 Pennies to the Pound and 4 Farthings to the Penny. So that a pound’s worth of Farthings would have been 960 coins. Don’t we wish we had the money and had put them away at the time?
