British West Africa 1/10th Penny 1940 Unc

The smallest coin issued by British West Africa under Kings George V and George VI is the 1/10th Penny. It is about the size of the old sixpence, struck in cupro-nickel and with a hole in the middle. The hole was so the locals could carry the coins on a string as they didn’t have pockets. Uncirculated condition and generally difficult to find.

Elizabeth II Halfcrown Unc 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…

Bag of 10 1948 Florins

Here is one that should be a winner, judging by previous experience. A bag of 10 1948 King George VI Florins. What is so special about the 1948 Florin. Well they changed the metal content in 1947 from silver to cupronickel and the legend on the coins was only used for two years, 1947 and 1948. So this is a two year only type coin. These coins are now 64 years old and are in selected circulated condition. Why a bag of 10? Because collectors like to trade with other collectors or give them away. By selling them in bags of ten we can also keep our prices down, as it costs us the same to handle an order for ten coins as it does for just one coin.
