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.

Victoria Young Head 6d Fair_obv

Victoria Young Head 6d Fair

In the whole Young Head series of Queen Victorian coins, the one that I have the most difficulty getting is the Sixpence. It was struck for years and years (1838-1887), but for some reason, this is one type of coin that always seems to be missing. I have a small group of these Sterling Silver Sixpences, dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you.

These are the original Lobel medallic patterns, fully crownsized and in Prooflike Uncirculated condition. They are available in cupro-nickel. Buy them while you can, they are being collected in the Far East.
George IV Halfpenny Very Good_obv

George IV Halfpenny Very Good

They were struck in Copper for only three years (1825-1827) which explains why they are missing from many collections. They were popular coins for everyday trading, as such they saw a lot of use until the Copper coins were taken out of circulation in the 1860s. It’s been almost 12 years since we were able to offer these wonderful halfpennies of George IV, and it’s the first time we’ve accumulated enough numbers to offer them in Very Good, but get in there quickly, stocks are limited.
