George V, both kinds of Penny, The Year of the Titanic Disaster, 1912

George V, 1912 & 1912 'H' Heaton Mint Pennies in Flip Envelope
Availability: In stock
SKU: UD12P
£4.95

Most people associate 1912 with the sinking of the unsinkable ship The Titanic but, as numismatists, we think of it as the year the Royal Mint couldn’t produce all the Pennies they needed and had to get an outside firm to help them. That firm was the Heaton Mint Ltd. in Birmingham. So if you look at a 1912 Penny to the left of the date and slightly upward you may well see an ‘H’ mintmark. This was the mintmark for the Heaton Mint.
We have made up this pair of 1912 and 1912 H Pennies in a plastic flip type envelope, so you can see both pennies at the same time. The coins are in selected circulated condition which, considering that they are now 105 years old, is quite good condition. Show them to your friends and ask if they can see the difference. When they can’t see the difference, then you can show them the ‘H’ and explain what has happened.

United States of America, Silver Mercury Dime 1930's

One of our most popular American coins is the Mercury Dime, but usually we only have them from the 1940’s or War Time. We bought a large group of these 900 fine Silver coins in and they have been sorted by date. We have come up with a much smaller group of coins dated in the 1930’s, from 1930-1939. Why are they more difficult to get? Because the 1930’s was the time of the Great Depression and money was far more important and could buy a heck of a lot more in those days. The coins have a portrait of the god Mercury on one side and a fasces on the other side. All coins will be in Fine condition and dates and mint marks will be of our choice. But the more you order the more different dates and mint marks we will try and give you.
