For several years we have been offering a Monarch type collection of Pennies. Now we are offering the same type collection but of halfpennies. The Halfpenny is much more difficult to get than the pennies and supplies are limited. You get a halfpenny of Queen Victoria, Edward VII, George V, George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. All are in selected circulated condition and believe us, these sets are not easy to put together. Remember that two of these bronze halfpennies are over 100 years old.
For the first time we are able to offer the complete date collection of King Edward VII bronze Halfpennies 1902-1910. As most collectors know the Halfpenny is the most difficult coin to find and to put all the dates together in one collection took years to do. All coins are in selected circulated condition. Supplies are limited and this is the first time we have been able to offer this collection for sale. Don’t miss out the Edward VII Halfpenny Set, it is a very difficult one to get.
King Edward VII had one of the shortest reigns of modern times, 1901-1910. As was the tradition no coins were made until his Coronation in 1902. We can offer two different type collections both in Very Good condition. The set includes the Farthing, Halfpenny, Penny, Silver Threepence, Sixpence, Shilling, Florin, Halfcrown, and Crown. The dates may vary but all the silver coins are struck in Sterling Silver including the Sterling Silver Crown for 1902, the only one ever struck during the reign of Edward VII.

The coins come in envelopes and all coins will be Very Good condition, but dates will vary within the set, that’s why they are called type sets!
The Brass Threepence first came into being at the Coronation of King George VI, the current Queen’s Father. His were made from 1937-1952. When he died in 1952 Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II and with great honour she is still serving us today. The Brass Threepence was made under Queen Elizabeth II from the Coronation year 1953 until 1967 when the denomination was no longer made for circulation. The Brass Threepence was an odd shaped strange metal coin but it is one of the most loved of all our modern denominations. After almost a year of negotiations we have managed to buy an incredible hoard of complete dates sets of Queen Elizabeth II Brass Threepences 1953-1967. The sets include all dates including the scarcer ones. It has been some time since we last able to offer this collection and once these sets are gone, it could be quite sometime if ever. We have not wasted money on some fancy presentation because most of our collectors collect coins and not boxes. It also reduced the price we have to ask for these complete collections. You get 1953 (a one year only type coin), 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967. All coins are in selected circulated condition. For now we are keeping our price for the whole collection at just under £13, but as we sell out, we tend to raise the price for the collections. Get them now at the best price!
The complete collection of Queen Elizabeth II Sixpences from the Coronation year 1953 until they ceased striking Sixpences for everyday usage in 1967. The Sixpence or Tanner, as it was called, was one of the most liked coins of its day. In fact, it was so well-liked that it was still legal tender till well after decimalization came into effect! You'll get all the dates: 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958. 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967. All the scarce and rare dates are included. All coins are struck in cupro-nickel and are in selected circulated condition. There are 15 different dates and you get all 15 of them. Remember that a Sixpence is usually carried by the bride for good luck. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a sixpence in your shoe! Sixpences make wonderful gifts and are an important part of British history!
This is the complete date set of Queen Elizabeth II Florins. You get every date from 1953 to 1967 the last Florin ever issued for circulation. That includes the one year type 1953, the scarce and rare dates 1954, 1958 and 1959. All coins are in selected circulated condition and remember the newest coin is now over 50 years old. If previous demand is anything to go by, this set of Florins will fly out. After all the Florin is the most difficult denomination to get.
We have managed to put together a few collections of all the English type Shillings issued by Queen Elizabeth II for circulation. That includes every date from 1953 to 1966, when the denomination was stopped. You get all the dates, scarce or rare, including 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965 and 1966. We no longer provide a Sandhill insert as this now adds about £6-£7 to the price and most of our collectors put them in albums anyway. All coins are in Fine or better condition and include the 1953 Coronation issue. A nice collection and not easy to put together today.
Most collectors don’t realise that the first Decimal Halfpenny (1971) were issued in rolls. They are shrink wrapped in plastic and there are 50 coins in each roll. We know, because we just bought an original bag of these coins all in original rolls! You have to remember that the Halfpenny was a very short lived coin. It was first issued in 1971 and the last coin was struck in 1984. Of course even more importantly the 1971 coins are denominated in ‘New Pence’ rather than as we do now, ‘Pence’. These Halfpence are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, just as they came out of the Royal Mint. Each roll holds 50 coins and is most unusual, as most coins don’t come out of the Royal Mint in rolls. It might be interesting to buy a couple to show to your friends or put away for your grandchildren.
In 1953 Queen Elizabeth II had her Coronation and the Royal Mint issued her first-ever Crown, her Coronation Crown. As her Majesty is now 94 years old and this crown is almost 70 years old, it is rather important. 21 years ago because of a promotion by one of the marketing companies, the wholesale price on this crown was £10.00 and at that price, we could have sold thousands if we had them. We have just bought a nice group of the 1953 Coronation Crown in Extremely Fine condition. We are selling them for just £9.95 each which is less than we could have sold them wholesale more than 20 years ago, demand will increase greatly. We sell nothing as an investment, but these are fantastic crowns and fantastic buys. Worth having a few as souvenirs…
During the reign of Queen Elizabeth II the Shilling came to an end. It was originally issued in the reign of King Edward VI and ended in 1966. There were two different types of shillings issued each year- one with the English reverse and one with the Scottish reverse. The Scottish coins are rarer as they struck far less of them. All coins are in selected circulated condition and you get one coin for each date 1953-1966. These sets are not easy to put together today.
George V and a George VI Pair of Silver Sixpences. All coins are original and genuine and struck by the Royal Mint, the ones that they are selling and the ones that we are selling are exactly the same. They were made for circulation and are struck in 500 fine Silver. Check out the Royal Mint website and you will see that they are charging £26.00 for each coin or £52.00 for the pair.
The Royal Mint are selling one Silver Sixpence, either George V of George VI, in a gift box for £26. We offer the SAME pair of coins, in display cases for JUST £14.95! Both the Royal Mint’s coins and Coincraft’s coins were struck in silver at the Royal Mint and are original and genuine. Would you rather pay the Royal Mint’s price of £26 for just one coin or our price of £14.95 for the pair? We think you would rather SAVE £37.05. Limit of 3 sets per collector at this price.
The Halfpenny of King George V is the most difficult bronze denomination to get, especially if you are trying to put a date set together. These early dates 1911-25 are the most difficult of the dates to find, so put them together and you have the most difficult of the most difficult. Each coin is in selected circulated condition and remember that they are almost 100 years old. You will get each date 1911-1925 for your collection. It took the person who made up the sets a long time to do it and even then he had to go out and buy some dates to complete the collections.
We have put together a nice type set of the King George V silver and bronze coins. The silver coins are the 500 fine issue and all coins will be in Fine condition. Remember that these were the first British coins to be struck in 500 fine Silver plus you get the three bronze coins as well. You get the 1935 Silver Jubilee Crown, the Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Threepence all in silver plus the bronze Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing. All coins have been carefully selected to match in quality. King George V’s coinage was an important turning point in British coinage and the 1935 Crown was the first commemorative crown ever issued in this country.
In 1927 the Royal Mint changed the design of the Silver Sixpence to have six acorns on the reverse. As the 1927 issue was only issued in the Proof Set it is not really a coin issued for circulation. So we are offering the complete set of coins issued for circulation 1928-1936 in selected circulated condition. A total of nine different dates of this ‘6 Acorn’ coin. All the coins were originally struck at the Royal Mint and all are struck in .500 fine Silver.
King George VI, was of course the father of our current Monarch Queen Elizabeth II. He kept the country on an even keel during World War Two and took over when his brother Edward VIII abdicated. Of the three bronze coins issued, Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing, without doubt the hardest to find is the Halfpenny. A friend of ours took several years to put together these complete date collections of George VI halfpennies 1937-1952. The Coronation year was 1937 and he passed in 1952. There are a total of 16 coins in the date collection, one for each year of his reign. All coins are in selected circulated condition and it would be very difficult to make up these sets today. Coronation, World War Two and every year that he was on the throne. You get all 16 coins in selected circulated condition for just £14.95 that is less than £1 a coin, but supplies are limited.
World War II lasted from 1939-1945, during that period our coinage was still struck in 500 fine Silver. That was because cupro-nickel was of much more use to the War Effort than silver. The Sixpence or Tanner was one of our most loved coins, until decimalization took over. We are offering the complete date set of World War II Silver Sixpences, 1939-1945. You get 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945 Sixpences all struck in 500 fine Silver. They are in Fine condition and make an interesting display piece when you are talking about the War. Unless you are a certain age, you might never have seen a sixpence, let alone a silver one.
We can now offer you the complete collection of King George VI Silver Sixpences. From the Coronation issue in 1937 to the last Silver Sixpence ever made in 1946. All coins are in selected circulated condition and you get every date, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1945 and of course 1946. You will note that this collection also includes the complete World War II date set as well. At one time the Royal Mint were selling these coins individually in a fancy box for £26.00 each! That would have made this collection costing you £260.00!!! But not at Coincraft. No fancy boxes just good honest coins for good honest coin collectors. We have managed to put together only 100 complete collections, no fancy boxes just down to earth prices. At Coincraft we sell coins and not packaging. You can display or package these coins any way you want, but you don’t pay for packaging you don’t want and cannot use.
In 1947 the Royal Mint took out all Silver from our coinage and used cupronickel instead. They still made two types of Shillings each year, with an English reverse and a Scottish reverse. This short series 1947-1951 has some very interesting aspects about them. The 1947 and 1948 issue had one legend, and then when India got independence they had to change the legend again. NO Shillings were struck for circulation in 1952 as the King died and Princess Elizabeth became our Queen. Normally we sell the two sets, English and Scottish in Sandhill Holders, but as Sandhill is no longer making cases, that is now impossible. Our normal price on the two sets in selected circulated condition is £29.95; there are a total of ten coins in the set. We have had the two sets sorted into snap lock plastic bags, one for English Shillings and one for Scottish Shillings. We are going to offer them for just £9.50 for both sets. That will save you £20.45. You don’t get the Sandhill Cases but you do save £20.45!
During World War II Silver was not that important for the War Effort, so they still struck our coins in Silver. The largest denomination struck at the time was the Halfcrown, Two Shillings and Sixpence. It was both the biggest and highest denomination struck during World War II. We have managed to put together complete date sets of the Silver George VI Halfcrown as issued in World War II. That means you'll get the 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945 King George VI Silver Halfcrowns. We don’t believe that we have ever offered this collection before. The Halfcrown was a large and valuable coin at the time; name me any youngster who wouldn’t have been over the moon to own one. You are getting the opportunity to own all the dates 1939-1945 issued during World War II. The coins are in selected circulated condition.
To play Shove Halfpenny the first thing you need are 10 of the old pre-decimal Halfpennies, five for each player. Then you need a wooden board but almost any flat piece of wood will do, it is the Halfpennies that are the most important. After all you cannot play Shove Halfpenny without any Halfpennies. Coincraft has come to the rescue, with our Shove Halfpenny Mini Bag. You get a nice bag holding 10 1967 (the last year of issue) Halfpennies in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Five coins for each player. The coins are now some 53 years old, but in brand new condition from an original Mint sealed bag of coins. These would make an excellent holiday present along with a piece of wood to play the game on. You supply the board we supply the coins. A mini bag of 10 Brilliant Uncirculated Halfpennies just £8.95
We bought some original bags of the last Brass Threepence dated 1967 and in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The only thing is that each bag contains 1,600 coins and most collectors don’t want that many of one coin. It's nice to give out gifts but there is some limit. Then we were shown some nice mini bags or perhaps you would call them pouches. Richard came up with the idea of putting 10 Brilliant Uncirculated 1967 Brass Threepences in one of the pouches and call it a mini bag of coins. The Brass Threepence is one of the most popular pre-decimal denominations, so it is a win-win situation. That way you get all you will need and you don’t have to buy a ‘door stop’ bag of coins to satisfy that desire.
