In 1967 the Royal Mint issued the last Halfcrown for circulation a denomination that had been going since the reign of King Edward VI. For those of you too young to remember, a Halfcrown was Two Shillings and Sixpence.
These were the largest circulating coins issued at the time and had a decimal equivalent of 12.5p. They are dated 1967 and are in Uncirculated condition. At that time you felt lucky if you were given a Halfcrown at Christmas as a gift.

On the front is the youthful portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and on the back is a crowned shield with E R at the sides with the denomination and the date.

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…
