In the reign of Queen Victoria the Half Farthing was only struck in copper. It is one of the smallest denominations ever made. We have a wonderful group of these copper Half Farthings in very high grade. Most of them will be dated 1844. You have the Young Head on one side and the date and denomination on the other side. They are struck in copper and now are over 173 years old. But the most interesting thing is their high quality.
Even after 67 years in coins we are still proud to say that we learn something new every day. Recently, a dealer was offering us a rather nice lot of high grade of 1887 Jubilee Head Half Sovereigns. We have sold a large number of the later dates of Jubilee Half Sovereigns of late, we were helping a friend distribute a parcel that he found on the Continent. These coins are the first year of issue and in a much nicer grade than they normally come in. But then he told me that the 1887 Half Sovereign is a one-year type coin. It seems that the Mint in 1887 used silver to mix with the gold and the colour of the gold coin is slightly different than all the other years. We didn’t know that. You learn something new every day…

Some time ago we offered the 1890 & 1892 Half sovereigns – we can now offer you the 1891 Half Sovereign in Very Fine condition. For those disappointed last time, this latest group is only offered as single coins, as some dates are in shorter supply than the others and a set of three may not work for all. All coins come housed in square capsules to set off the gold and protect the coin. Now over 130 years old these are in above average condition and nearly 4 grams of 22-carat gold. With the higher price of gold, these are even better value.

There were 3 major types of Queen Victoria Half Sovereigns issued, Young Head, Jubilee Head and Old Head. The Half Sovereign is much scarcer than the full Sovereign. Both are struck in 22ct by the Royal Mint. It is just that the Half Sovereign was the least expensive Gold coin struck at the time. You have the veiled or Old Head portrait of H. M. Queen Victoria on one side and St. George and the dragon on the other side. These are actual gold coins that were used in day today transactions. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and were minted between 1893-1901. These are important type coins and of course the Half Sovereign is a scarce denomination. Dates will be of our choice, but supplies are limited.
In 1887 Queen Victoria finally allowed her portrait on the coinage to be changed. It was 50 years that she kept her Young Head portrait on the coins. The Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence was perhaps the most used large silver coin at the time. Because of course, a Halfcrown was a lot of money then. You have the Queen on the obverse with that silly little crown placed on her head. She hated it because it looked like a toy rather than the real thing. The reverse has a crowned coat of arms within a garter of roses. These Halfcrowns are struck in Sterling Silver and we have them in two grades. Dates will be of our choice, but they were only made from 1887-1892.
This is the middle type of coinage struck for Queen Victoria. It was only issued from 1887-1892 and was first issued for her Golden Jubilee. Thus this coinage became known as Queen Victoria Jubilee Head coins. The coin on offer is the Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence. You have the Jubilee Head of Queen Victoria on one side and a shield in a Garter with in an ornate circle of medals. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver (925 fine). Dates will be of our choice but will be in Fine condition. The more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. In 1887, a Halfcrown was a lot of money; today they are more reasonably priced.
In the long reign of Queen Victoria there were three main designs used, we have selected the last two, the Jubilee Head and the Old or Widow Head coinage to offer you. Here we are offering the Jubilee Head Halfcrown in Very Good. Dates will be of our choice depending on what we have in stock when the order comes in. But as always fair grading and priced to make them attractive.

The Half Crown of Queen Victoria with the Old Head design is the second-largest denomination in silver to be struck with this bust of the Queen. You have the bust of Queen Victoria her widow’s dress and a crowned shield on the reverse. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were only issued from 1893-1901. A nice large Sterling Silver coin in Very Good condition and each one is at least 117 years old. We think you will love this coin, we already do.
The first design of the coins of Queen Victoria are known as the Young Head design, as they show her as a 17 year old, even though this design was to be used for the next 50 years! The largest Silver coin that was regularly struck for circulation, you have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side with the date. These Young Head Halfcrowns were made from 1839-1887. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order, the more different dates we will try and give you, but no rare dates are included. The largest silver coin made regularly for everyday usage; we can offer them in Fair and Very Good condition. The first coins of Queen Victoria’s long reign and now at least 125 years old.
When Queen Victoria came to the throne the first thing they had to do was strike coins with her portrait on them. One of my favourites and the most difficult denomination to get was the Halfpenny. In those days halfpennies were struck between 1838 -1860 on thick planchets of copper not the thin bronze coins they would issue later. You have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side and the seated figure of Britannia on the other side. We have a few and I do mean a few of the high grade examples to offer you. Supplies are limited and this is, after all, the most difficult denomination to get, especially in high grades.
Queen Victoria was our second longest serving Monarch, 1837-1901. The last coins struck for her were dated 1901. We have a nice but small group of the 1901 Old Head halfpennies in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. A nice type coin and the Halfpenny is much more difficult to get than the Penny, especially in such nice condition. The last ever halfpenny of Queen Victoria, worth adding to your collection, while supplies last.
Queen Victoria’s long reign ended in January 1901. So that the 1901 Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing are the last bronze coins made with her portrait. We have bought a small group of 1901 Halfpennies. A great tribute to a great Queen and the condition is so nice. Offered here in CHOICE Brilliant Uncirculated.
