George III, Halfpenny Fine, 1806

During the reign of King George III there was a great shortage of small change. The last type of Halfpenny issued for this Monarch were struck in 1806 and 1807. We recently purchased a nice group of the 1806 issue, the first year of issue in Fine and Very Fine condition. You have the bust of King George III dressed as a Roman on one side and the seated figure of Britannia on the other side. These were the last copper George III halfpennies issued. After the Currency Reform Act of 1816, they didn’t bother to issue any halfpennies.

Elizabeth II, Roll of Crowns, 1977

This Crown or Twenty-Five Pence coin was issued in 1977 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee 1952-1977. It carries on the tradition of the Coronation crown, in that the Queen is on horseback. They are struck in cupro nickel. We have had some wonderful strong plastic tubes come in from the States. They hold 20 crownsized pieces safe and secure. These Crowns are in Uncirculated condition, we have taken them from original mint sealed bags. A wonderful thing to own or you could break up the roll and give them as gifts.

Victoria, Jubilee Head Halfcrown (Very Fine)

Queen Victoria finally allowed the design of her coinage to be changed after 50 years. We suppose a 67 year old woman does look a little different from a 17 year old girl. Never-the-less in 1887 to celebrate her Golden Jubilee she allowed a new portrait to be used on her coinage, this of course, became known as the Jubilee Head design. The Half Crown with this Jubilee Head design was only issued from 1887 until 1892, when the design was changed again. The Queen hated this Jubilee Head design because it showed her with a tiny crown on her head, almost like a toy. The coins were struck in Sterling Silver and personally, we think the design is rather attractive. This product comes in 'very fine' condition. Dates will be of our choice and to be honest, most of the coins on offer are the first year of issue (1887), because that is the most available date of the series. Nice high grade coins at prices that won’t hurt your pocket and remember that these coins are now 125 years old!

Canada, Prince Edward Island 1c

One of the most North Eastern Provinces of Canada is Prince Edward Island. They only made a coin once for this area and that was in 1871. You have the crowned portrait of Queen Victoria on one side and a pine tree on the other. This was a large One Cent coin and it was the only coin ever struck for Prince Edward Island and it was minted for just one year, 1871. The coins are in Fine or better condition and if you are trying to put together one coin from each country, you will definitely need this one. Our agent has been going to Canada twice a year for two years to put this group together. After all there are a lot of people who want a coin from Prince Edward Island and not a lot of coins to go around. A very important type coin and the only coin of the country.
