William IV Penny Fair

In the very short reign of King William IV, the largest and most difficult copper coin to find is the Penny. It was only struck for circulation for 4 years from 1831-1837 and they usually come up well worn. You have the bare head of the King on one side and a seated Britannia holding a Trident and shield on the other side. The coin on offer is in Very Good or Fair condition, which is about average for this issue. Dates will be of our choice, but if you want more than one date, please ask and we will see what we can do for you.

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.

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.
