Extremely Fine - Uncirculated Pair
Availability: In stock
SKU: SGM252-0248
Ceylon, now called Sri Lanka, used to issue coins with the British Monarch’s portrait on them. We offer the copper Half Cent of King George V, the lowest denomination made. But what is more interesting is they are all dated 1926, the year Princess Elizabeth (H.M. Queen Elizabeth II) was born. The coins are in Extremely Fine – Uncirculated condition with touches of original lustre in the lettering. I am going to offer them only as a pair, so you can show both the obverse and reverse at the same time. They are extremely difficult to find in this high grade. Get them while you can supplies are very limited and I have priced them right.

New Zealand, Strapless Coin Set

In 1953 New Zealand issued their first coins for their new Queen, Elizabeth II. It wasn’t until 1955 that they noticed that the Queen was wearing a strapless gown. This caused quite an uproar and in 1956 they redesigned the portrait of H. M. The Queen wearing a dress with straps. We offer the strapless set of New Zealand coins all 7 of them, 1/2d, 1d, 3d, 6d, 1/-, 2/- and 2/6 all in selected circulated condition. It is a variety that most collectors outside of New Zealand don’t even know about let alone have in their collections. Supplies are limited, remember you get all seven coins of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a strapless gown.
