In 1949 the Royal Mint changed the legend on our coinage, IND IMP was omitted. This was due to India gaining its independence from this country and there was no longer a reason to have it on the legend. There were only two more pennies after this issue and both of these are Rare and very expensive, especially in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. If you want an important type coin, at a price that won’t break the bank, then this 1949 Penny without IND IMP is the coin for you. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and came from a bag that was found in a bank in the United States. They had been there since 1949! These are priced right to entice and delight you and at our price, it might be interesting to buy a couple of extra pieces for trading with other collectors.
World War II was over and our coinage was still struck in silver, something that would carry on for just one more year. Starting with his Coronation in 1937, the Shilling had been struck with both an English and a Scottish reverse. So this 1945 English Shilling is the penultimate English Shilling to be issued in silver. Here we offer the 1945 Shilling in Uncirculated condition. Remember these are still struck in 500 fine Silver.
This Silver Sixpence was issued during World War II in 1942. Believe it or not, during the War, other metals were of more use than silver, so they used silver in our coinage. You have the bare head portrait of King George VI on the obverse and crowned initials on the reverse. If nothing else, this would make an excellent small present for someone getting married. They are in selected circulated condition, struck during World War II and struck in silver.
We have small a hoard of King George VI Silver Sixpences in choice condition. These are the last silver sixpences ever and there is a variety of dates all choice to gem. They make great type coins or if you were born that year, they make great presents. You have the bare head of the King on one side and the crowned cypher on the other side. These coins are in beautiful condition and remember the last silver coins ever were issued in 1946. King George VI was of course H. M. the Queen’s father.
