1918 King’s Norton Penny in Fine

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 1919 H Penny Circulated

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…

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!
