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.

Edward VII, Threepence (Silver) 1902 VG+

Of all the Monarchs who issued coins in the 20th Century, the most difficult one to get coins from is King Edward VII. That is because his reign was so short, in fact they only issued coins dated from 1902 until 1910. Here offer the 1902 Threepence, the smallest silver coin issued for Edward VII. It was struck in Sterling Silver, and promise that all the coins will be in at least Very Good condition. Remember that this coin is now over 110 years old!

William IV, Farthing Fine

King William IV, also known as the Sailor King, only ruled from 1830-1837. The smallest coin that was regularly issued for circulation was the copper farthing and that was issued for only five years. It is a lot more difficult to get than many collectors and dealers realise. Here we offer King William IV's Farthing in Fine condition. You have the bare head of the King on the obverse and a seated Britannia on the reverse. We are selling them by type, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and send you. They are almost two hundred years old and this Monarch did not rule for long.

George III, Halfcrown (Small Head) Fine

In 1816, during the end of the reign of King George III, all the old coinage was replaced with new coins and new designs. The Halfcrown was first issued in 1816-1817 but the King hated how they had portrayed him on the coin. So later in 1817 they changed the design to the new smaller head halfcrown. This design lasted only until 1820 when the King died and George IV came to the throne and all the designs changed. The Half Crown is the second largest silver denomination issued, it had a face value of Two Shillings and Sixpence. They were struck in Sterling Silver, dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. We have the small head George III Halfcrown available in Very Good and Fine condition, the choice is yours.
