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 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 the United States collecting rolls of coins has always been an important part of the hobby. We don’t know if people, collect, hoard or buy to give away as gifts. In any case collecting coins by the roll is very important. So we sent to one of our suppliers in America and bought a number of their square plastic tubes for coins. The square ones will not roll all over the place. When we describe a roll it refers to the packaging and not the number in the roll. This particular role has 18 Florins. All coins are Queen Elizabeth II, the last year of issue of our Pre-Decimal coins. Start a new hobby, collect Brilliant Uncirculated rolls of British coins!
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…
Now that the Round Pound is no more, collectors have the opportunity to complete their type set of this coin. First issued in 1983 it was last struck for circulation in 2015. There were three busts of Queen Elizabeth II used during that time. The Machin bust, the so-called Maklouf bust and the Rank-Broadley bust. The Royal Mint made a special edition in Proof Sterling Silver for collectors each year. For VIP Collectors they made Piedfort or double the normal thickness in Proof Sterling Silver. It is those VIP double thick pieces that we now offer you. Each coin comes in a Royal Mint case. The Arnold Machin bust was only struck in 1983 and 1984 so this is the most difficult to get. The so-called Maklouf bust was struck from 1985-1997 and the Ian Rank-Broadley bust was struck from 1998-2014. There is a fourth bust, but these coins were not made for circulation, so we are not including them in the collection. Each coin is struck in double thick Proof Sterling Silver and is in beautiful condition. Supplies are limited...
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.
In 1953 Elizabeth was crowned Queen Elizabeth II and the whole world celebrated. Four countries of the British Commonwealth issued Crowns which honoured this event. For the first time we can offer the whole collection of Coronation Crowns. They were issued by Canada, South Africa, New Zealand and of course Great Britain. Two of the crowns, Canada and South Africa are Silver and the other two are cupro-nickel, all are in Extremely Fine or better condition. The collection of four Coronation Crowns is fitted into a Sandhill Case. Please remember that this is the first time that we have offered this Collection. What a fantastic collection this is, all four Coronation Crowns issued some 52 years ago. THIS PRODUCT IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK.
Fantastic Collection of the last 5 Crowns Ever In 1981 the Royal Mint issued its last British Crown ever. They are issuing crown-sized coins today, but they have a nominal face value of £5 and they are certainly NOT crowns. The last Five Crowns ever were, Churchill Crown 1965, Silver Wedding Crown 1972, Silver Jubilee Crown 1977, Queen Mother’s 80th Birthday Crown and Charles & Diana’s Wedding Crown 1981. Remember the first crown-sized coin of five shillings was issued in 1551 by King Edward VI and the last one was in 1981. We have had a fantastic package made to display the last five crowns and it is exclusive to Coincraft. These sets make excellent gifts for family, friends and business associates. One marketing company is selling the 1977 Crown on its own for £9.95, so our price of just £24.95 for all five crowns is very reasonable.
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.
Phil has come across a large parcel of the George V Silver Threepences 1911-1919. It is most important for you to realise that these are the last ever Threepence to be struck in Sterling Silver. In 1920 all our coinage was changed from Sterling Silver (.925 fine) to just .500 fine silver. Our normal price on these coins is £7.50, they are all in nice collectable condition, each coin was hand-selected. We think they are great and to be honest underappreciated. But we buy and we sell. So we have a large group of them and now we have a rather special price. Sort of put-away lots, nice for the children or grandchildren. These are available in lots of 10, 50 and 100. Fantastic for Christmas pudding or for collectors.
We recently bought three bags of King George V Farthings. They are all struck between 1911 and 1936, but we have not sorted them by date, they will be just as they come out of the sacks. Having glanced through a bag of these George V farthings the coins are in Fine or better condition. Richard didn’t look at the coins for dates, so we will sell them as they come. We will ask one of the staff who has little knowledge of British coins to just count them out. They came from a dealer who has been in coins for over 50 years and is now retiring. Here we are offering them as they come out of a sack, 10 pieces for £15.00.

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.
