During Queen Victoria's reign, there were four types of crowns issued (the 1839 crown was Proof only) but only three types were actually issued for circulation. Here we offer one of them, the Young Head 1839-47 in Fine condition.
In 1839 they struck the first Victorian Crown, but this date was only for the Proof Set and not for general circulation. It wasn’t until 1844 that they struck coins for the public to use. They only made them in 1844, 1845, and 1847 and then they didn’t make another Crown until 1887. This Sterling Silver Crown has the Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side and a crowned shield on the other side. Because there was a 40-year gap between the last Young Head Crown and the first Jubilee Head Crown, the Young Head Crowns generally come quite well used however, the coins on offer are in Very Fine condition a grade we haven’t been able to offer for a while. Even now the number we have is extremely limited...
When Queen Victoria took the throne, they issued Silver Crowns to honour the new Queen. They were struck in Sterling Silver and were only issued in 1844, 1845 and 1847 for circulation. In Very Good condition.
These Victorian Young Head Farthings were struck in copper from 1838-1860 from then they were made thinner and struck in bronze. We love these copper coins because of their thickness and Victoria’s portrait. Don’t forget she only came to the throne in 1837. Dates of our choice, but the more you order the more dates we will try and give you. Available in three different grades to appeal to all collectors.
A nice parcel of Queen Victoria Copper Farthings has just arrived. These are the thick coins actually struck in Copper and not bronze as the later pieces were. You have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side and a seated Britannia on the other side. Today these coins are getting more and more difficult to find. They were made from 1838-1859 for circulation. The group we got in had a number of different dates, unfortunately, none of the rare ones. This product comes in fine grade. We have not received a parcel like this in years and we are certain these coins will sell very quickly. The more coins you order the more different dates we will try and give you.
When Queen Victoria came to the throne the smaller coins were struck in Copper, rather than the bronze that they used from 1860. You have the beautiful Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side and the figure of a seated Britannia on the other side. They were issued from 1839-1859 for circulation. The coins on offer are in Very Fine condition, which is quite high grade for these coins. Remember they were in everyday usage and therefore saw a lot of wear. The usual grade they come in is Very Good or maybe Fine, the coins on offer are in Very Fine condition. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you.
Firstly a Groat is 4 old pence (4d) or 1/60th of a Pound. These have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on them and many were also struck for use in our overseas Colonies, but they were still legal tender and used in this country. You have the youthful portrait of Queen Victoria on one side and a rather beautiful rendition of Britannia seated on the reverse. One of the most underappreciated Victorian coins. They were issued from 1838-1861 and we have them available in two different grades Very Good and Fine. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and are at least 160 years old. Let’s face it many collectors don’t even know that a Groat was ever issued. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. Please do not ask for specific dates as they will no doubt be the rare dates.
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 those we have are dated 1844 and are in About Uncirculated condition. 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.
