Picture of George VI, Halfcrown 1944 Choice Uncirculated

George VI, Halfcrown 1944 Choice Uncirculated

Of course, 1944 is an important date for many reasons largely regarding the events of world war II. At that time our Monarch was King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. Our coinage was still being struck in Silver as this was less useful to the War Effort than cupronickel in producing munitions. The largest denomination struck in 1944 was the Half Crown, Two Shillings and Sixpence. The coins on offer are at the top end of the grading scale and are very nice examples - choice uncirculated. The coins have seen no wear, but of course over the past 74 years they will have toned a little, but then again haven’t we all? Nice coins that will please and delight you.

1938 Penny_Obv

George VI, Penny 1938 Brilliant Uncirculated

We think the bronze coins of King George VI are much underappreciated. The farthings are easy to get, but it's much more difficult to obtain nice Pennies and Halfpennies.

Picture of George VI, Penny 1949 Brilliant Uncirculated

George VI, Penny 1949 Brilliant Uncirculated

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.

Picture of George VI, Shilling (English) 1945  AU

George VI, Shilling (English) 1945 AU

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.

1942_Silver_Sixpence_obv

George VI, Sixpence (Silver) 1942

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.
