George III, 'Bull Head' Sixpence Very Good_Obv

George III, Sixpence (Bull Head) Very Good

In 1816 there was the Currency Reform Act, which allowed coins to be struck even without the Monarch’s permission. This was put into place because of King George III’s illness and the shortage of small change. From 1816 on, new designs, new weights new everything. These are the first of the new Sterling Silver Sixpences issued from 1816-1820. You have the bullhead of the King on one side and a crowned shield on the other side. Even in this grade supplies are limited.

Edward VII, Farthing, 1905

In 1905 King Edward VII was on the throne, finally having taken over from his late mother, Queen Victoria. Arthur Balfour is Prime Minister and Chelsea has just been elected to the Football League. The GPO had just gotten rid of horse-drawn carriages to deliver the mail from London to Brighton and replaced them with Motor Lorries. The 1st public protest by a suffragette took place and Alf Common became the first £1000 football transfer. The Farthing was the smallest denomination regularly issued. You had the King’s bare head on one side and a seated Britannia on the other side. We can offer you the King Edward VII Farthing in Fine condition for your collection.

George VI_Bare_Head_obv

George IV, Farthings (Pair) in Very Fine

In the short reign of King George IV 1820-30, there were two different busts used on his Farthings. George IV was also known as the sailor King. You have his early coinage and his later coinage, two types to collect. Because the Farthing was the lowest denomination that was regularly made and used, they tend to come in well-worn condition. Mark has put together a limited number of pairs of both types of George IV Farthings, Bare Head and Laureate Head, but in Very Fine condition. We didn’t think he could do it, but he did. These are very difficult to find in Very Fine condition and they are over 180 years old.
