George V, Three Kings Sixpence Fine, 1936

These 1936 silver sixpences have the portrait of King George V on them, but they have a far more interesting history. King George V died and his son became King Edward VIII and most of these Sixpences were struck during the reign of King Edward VIII. In December of that year Edward abdicated and his brother became King George VI. While the portrait is that of King George V who knows who was actually on the throne when they were struck. It is an interesting conundrum which will never be figured out.

George V, Sixpence circulated, 1926

In 1926 a Princess, now Queen Elizabeth II was born. Her grandfather King George V was on the throne at the time. The Sixpence was still being struck in silver. John Logie Baird demonstrated TV and the country had a terrible General Strike. For some reason the coins of 1926 are not easy to get. So we were very happy when we were offered a small group of the 1926 Silver Sixpence, a most useful and collected denomination. The coins are used, but in selected circulated condition. Honour our great Monarch, add a silver sixpence of her birth year to your collection. After all Queen Elizabeth II is the longest serving Monarch that this great nation has ever had.
