George V, 1918 100 Anniversary of World War Commemorative in Copper

World War I was the war to end all wars, or at least that is what people thought, believed and hoped for. World War One lasted from 1914-1918, 2018 was the 100th anniversary of the end of this horrific conflict. Mints all over the world issued commemorative pieces to honour this event. Some of them were sold at outrageous prices. This set was made two years ago, they made 100 sets with a plain edge and 100 sets with the milled edge and we bought them all! These are of excellent workmanship; they were done by someone who does work for the Royal Mint. As usual, when Coincraft makes a good buy, you make a good buy! Here we offer the George V 1918 commemorative retro pattern crown in copper.

George V, Farthing (Mint Darkened),1916

During World War One the Royal Mint darkened the Farthings they issued. This was because they felt that bright coins would cause reflection and allow the enemy to shoot at those with bright coins. To find these coins in Uncirculated condition is rare, as they quickly rubbed on the high points and became circulated. We just bought a group of nice Uncirculated examples that were put away in 1916, 102 years ago. The Monarch is, of course, King George V and the Farthing was the smallest denomination at the time. A very difficult coin to find in such a high grade. The current catalogue price is £20.00 and you would be lucky to find them at that price. But we bought 50 examples put away 102 years ago and we are going to sell them for what we think is a reasonable price or just £14.95, but once these 50 pieces are gone who knows where we will find any more...

George V, Halfcrown 1915

In the early reign of King George V the coins were struck in Sterling Silver 925 fine Silver. After 1920 the coins were struck in 500 fine silver. The largest Sterling Silver coin struck during the reign of King George V was the Halfcrown. They are in Fine or better condition.

George V, Halfcrown Fine, 1914

This Sterling Silver Halfcrown was issued during the first year of World War I, 1914. It was the largest silver coin struck at the time, as no crown for George V would be issued until 1927. You have the bare head of the King facing left and the reverse has the crowned arms within a wreath. All British coins until and including 1919 were struck in Sterling Silver. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and 1914 is not the easiest date to find. This is an interesting coin, an interesting date and one of the last coins from this country to be struck in Sterling Silver.

George V, King’s Norton Penny in Fine, 1918

1918 King’s Norton Penny in Fine. In the reign of King George V the Royal Mint ran out of capacity to strike enough coins for everyday usage, so they contracted out the minting of some Pennies. One of the two Mints they used was the King’s Norton Mint, unlike the Birmingham Mint, the King’s Norton Mint had never struck coins for them before. They only made pennies for the Mint in 1918 and 1919 and all of these coins carry the ‘KN’ mint mark by the left of the date. Of the two mints, the King’s Norton is by far the most difficult to get.

We have a nice little group of the 1918 issue in Fine condition. Remember these KN Pennies were only ever struck for two years.

George V, Penny 'H' Mintmark Fine, 1918

It is strange but true; the Royal Mint did not strike a lot of the bronze coins that were issued in this country. In fact at one point they were using two private mints to strike coins for them. The Heaton Mint which has a mintmark ‘H’ as on this coin and the Kings Norton Mint which used a ‘KN’ mintmark. Interesting enough, both private mints have gone out of business. This Penny is dated 1918, which was during World War I and we guess the Royal Mint had too many other things on its plate. The mintmark is below Britannia to the left of the date. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and are rather difficult to find these days. The Royal Mint didn’t strike this 1918 Penny but the Mint Birmingham Ltd did. Why not add one to your collection?

The coinage of King George V was struck from 1911-1936. From 1911 until 1919 his coins were struck in Sterling Silver and from 1920-1936 they were struck in 500 fine Silver. Although there were crowns struck occasionally, on a regular basis the largest non gold coin struck was the Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence. The coin offered here is the 1914 Halfcrown in selected circulated condition, but let’s be honest the older the coin, the more circulation you can expect. We always give you the best coin we have in stock at that time.

George V, the last Sterling Silver Threepence, 1919

In 1919 the Royal Mint issued the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence for circulation. The next year, 1920, they reduced the silver content in our coins from 925 fine silver to 500 fine silver. King George V was on the Throne and World War I was just over, the economy needed the extra income from less silver in our coinage. We can offer the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence in Fine condition for just £8.50. It shows what inflation does to our money, today there is no silver in our coins just cupro-nickel and even the smallest coins are only copper plated steel.
£8.50

George V, Threepence Silver, 1916

This King George V threepence is dated 1916, issued during World War I, and most importantly, it is struck in Sterling Silver. Our coinage would be struck in Sterling Silver for just 3 more years. The coins are in Fine condition and have the bare head portrait of the King on one side and a crowned ‘3’ on the other. A nice coin to add to your collection and it is 102 years old.
