George VI, English Shilling Choice Uncirculated, 1949

It was in the reign of King George VI that all silver was removed from our coinage and replaced with what we use today, cupronickel. But what many collectors don’t realise is that the cupronickel coins of George VI in choice condition are much rarer to get than choice silver coins of George VI. We purchased a group of the 1949 English Shillings, put away in 1949 and are they super! We have classed these as Choice Uncirculated; the worst coin is far superior to what you see on the market and the finest coins are just about as good as you will ever see. The current catalogue price on this coin is £35.00 in just Uncirculated condition and all of these are much nicer than that. A chance to buy a Choice George VI 1949 English cupronickel Shilling at a price that will please you.

Elizabeth II, The Last Florin 1967, Brilliant Uncirculated.

Elizabeth II, The Last 1967 Florin. Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1967 the Royal Mint issued its last ever Florin for circulation. Although it had an exact decimal equivalent, the 10p, they decided to stop making them. As most collectors know the florin is the most difficult of the denominations to get. We can offer the last ever, the 1967 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for just £4.00. At one time a number of years ago, we had to pay that price to get them. But a fortunate find, in our basement, allows us to offer them to you. Limit of three coins per collector and well worth having.

Elizabeth II, Halfcrown Uncirculated, 1966

In 1967 the last Halfcrown ever was struck for circulation. So the 1966 is the penultimate issue and in fact is many times harder to get in Uncirculated condition than the 1967 Halfcrown. We have nice Uncirculated examples of the scarcer 1966 Queen Elizabeth II Halfcrown to offer to our collectors. A lucky buy allowed us to offer them to you this issue. They are the largest in both size and denomination that was struck for circulation, after all the crowns really circulated in the 1960’s. Add an Uncirculated 1966 Queen Elizabeth II Halfcrown to your collection; it is something that not all that many collectors have…

Elizabeth II, Coronation Halfpenny, 1953

One of the most difficult denominations to get, in Uncirculated condition, is the Halfpenny. It was a denomination that was regularly used and thus usually comes in circulated condition. We went through one of our vault rooms and found a box of 1953 Coronation Halfpennies in Uncirculated condition taken from the Mint Set of that year; they came out of a plastic folder. Over the past 65 years, they have mellowed a bit, but they have never seen circulation. Years ago we offered the 1953 Penny and that quickly sold out; we expect the same thing to happen on the Coronation halfpenny.
