William IV 6d Very Good_obv

William IV 6d Very Good

William IV (1830-37) was the third son of George III, succeeding his elder brother George IV, becoming the last king and penultimate monarch of the House of Hanover. William served in the Royal Navy in his youth, spending time in British North America and the Caribbean, and was later nicknamed the “Sailor King”. As his two elder brothers died without leaving legitimate heirs, William inherited the throne in 1830 when he was 64 years old. At the time of his death, just 7 years later, William was survived by eight illegitimate children, none of whom could lay claim to the throne. So William was succeeded by his young niece -Victoria, the rest is history! Being such a short reign, William’s coins can be difficult to find in large quantities, we’ve been putting away the popular sixpences for several years and finally have enough to offer you. They were struck for 5 years only and dates will be of our choice, more than likely 1831-35, and they’ll be offered in VG and Fine grade.

William IV, Farthing (Copper) Very Fine_obv

William IV, Farthing (Copper) Very Fine

The reign of King William IV was rather short 1830-1837. The smallest coin that was regularly issued for circulation was the copper Farthing and that was only made in 1831, 1834, 1835, 1836 and 1837. Because it was the smallest denomination it was used every day and the examples you usually see are in well worn condition. This little group is rather outstanding in that all the coins are in Very Fine condition, much better than they usually come. Dates will be of our choice, but the coins are in Very Fine condition a nice collectors grade. They are coming on to being almost 200 years old and come from a very short reign. Nice copper coins and well above average condition.

William IV Halfcrown Fine_obv

William IV, Halfcrown Fine

In the short reign of King William IV only one crown was issued and that could cost you up to £40,000. The next largest silver coin was the Halfcrown which was struck for circulation for only four years. It is a rather handsome coin with the bare head of the King facing right and the reverse is the Royal Coat of Arms draped and crowned. It was issued for a very short time and was the largest silver denomination issued at the time. Not an easy coin to find these days but we have some available in both Very Good and Fine condition. This is one type coin that we feel is underappreciated and thus undervalued. This a Very Important type coin, for your collection.

William IV, Three Halfpence, 1834 VERY FINE_obv

William IV, Three Halfpence, 1834 VERY FINE

This coin was first issued for Colonial use under William IV in 1834. They were struck until 1862 during Victoria’s reign, but only for 12 years in total. So they can be a difficult denomination to find and certainly would have been amongst the smallest. They feature the bust of William IV by William Wyon on the obverse and the crowned numerals 1½ in a wreath on the reverse, together with the date. We have not offered this denomination of William IV’s coinage as a feature for nearly 9 years, so make the most of this opportunity to add a wonderful 190 year old silver three ha’penny from this short reign monarch.
