George V, Halfcrown, 1916

George V, Halfcrown 1916, About Uncirculated
£60.00

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, 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.

George V, King's Norton Penny, 1918

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?

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.

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.
£6.95

George V, Threepence Sterling Silver, 1914

This George V Sterling Silver threepence was issued in 1914 just at the start of World War One. Later, in 1920, they reduced the fineness of the silver used in our coinage from 925 (Sterling) to 500 fine or half silver. This little ‘Joey’ as the threepence was known was the smallest silver coin issued at the time for circulation. The coins have the bare head of the King on one side and a crowned ‘3’ on the other side. The coins are in Fine condition and are now 104 years old.

World War I (George V) Coin Set, VG or Better

During World War One the silver coinage was struck in Sterling Silver and the bronze coins were really bronze. We have put together type sets of the coins that were struck and used during World War One. You get the Sterling Silver, Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence, and Threepence plus the bronze Penny, Halfpenny, and Farthing. All coins will have been minted between 1914 and 1918. Dates will vary in the set but all are original and genuine. The coins will be in Very Good or better condition, considering that they are at least 100 years old, we think they are in quite a nice condition. The Royal Mint charges £150 in a case! The coins will come in individual envelopes to save space when you store them. Also, that way you don’t have to pay £50.50 extra for a case you don’t want.

World War I Penny Collection 1914-1918

One of our competitors is offering a set of World War I Pennies 1914-1918. Yes, their set comes in a smart case, but they are charging £79.50 for the collection... Also, the coins they illustrated were cleaned, they probably think that improves their appearance, but it actually depreciates their worth. Our coins are average circulated just as theirs are, but ours are natural, we have not cleaned them. We do not supply a case, on the other hand, our set is priced at £10.00 and theirs is priced at £79.50. We will not name the other company, we don't want to shame them any more than their price of £79.50 shames them already...
