We all admired the excellent award winning movie, ‘The King’s Speech’ in 2010 which showed
King George VI’s determination and strength. Now you can own original coins from the reign of
George VI issued from 1937-1952, a Coronation Stamp issued in 1937 and a banknote issued just after
World War II.
You’ll receive the coins that were actually used during George VI’s reign: the bronze Farthing,
Halfpenny and Penny, plus the brass Threepence, Silver Threepence and cupronickel Sixpence, Shilling,
Florin and Half Crown. These are original, genuine coins and were actually used as money in the reign
of King George VI.
You also get an Uncirculated British Armed Forces 2nd series Pound issued by Command of the Army
Council in 1948. To top it off, you get a Mint stamp issued in 1937 for George VI’s Coronation, issued
and overprinted for use in British Morocco. This collection is exclusive to Coincraft.
The entire collection comes in a presentation wallet loaded with interesting and historic information.
During World War One the silver coinage was struck in Sterling Silver and the bronze coins were really bronze.
We have put together type sets of the coins that were struck and used during World War One.
You get the Sterling Silver, Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Threepence plus the bronze Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing. All coins will have been minted between 1914 and
1918. Dates will vary in the set but all are original and genuine. The coins will be in Very Good or better condition, considering that they are at least 100 years old, I think this is quite nice
condition. The Royal Mint charge £150 in a case! The coins will come in individual envelopes to save space when you store them. Also that way you don’t have to pay £50.50 extra for a case you don’t want.
