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.

South Africa, 1952 Threepence UNC

In 1952 King George VI died. The last ever British Silver Threepence was issued in his name up to 1944. But in South Africa they issued a Silver Threepence for circulation in 1952 and that is the coin we have on offer today. You have the bare head portrait of the King on one side and a plant and sticks of wood on the other. An interesting memento and if you have one of our George VI sets, even more interesting.

George V, H Penny Circulated, 1919

This is the 1919 H Penny, the last to be struck outside the Mint. It was struck by the Heaton Mint in Birmingham, that is why it carries the H mint mark. These are nice coins, used but better than average for a coin that is now over 90 years old. Add one to your collection and your folder will be closer to filling up…
