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.

Edward VII, Third Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1902

To us, one of the most interesting and difficult coins of King Edward VII has always been the Third Farthing. It is the smallest coin issued by Edward VII and it was made for only one year 1902. A Farthing was 960 to the pound and these are each one third of that Farthing. Although legal tender and used in this country, they were mainly made for use in Malta and Ceylon. The mintage is just 288,000 and they are now 116 years old. This group came in from a dealer who bought them from someone who put them away in 1902. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and remember they are a one year type coin and very low mintage.
