£3.95

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, 10 pence Uncirculated, 1968

One of the most interesting coins of the Decimal series is the 10 Pence pieces, especially the old large sized coins. The first Decimal 10p was introduced in 1968, replacing the two shilling coin in preparation for decimalisation in 1971. It features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin on the obverse. Today you get the small sized 10 Pence in your change, as this large sized coin has not been made for over 16 years.
