Commonwealth Halfcrown Replica
Whenever we have a Commonwealth coin on our Rare Coin listing there are always multiple orders for it. After it all it was a very interesting period of our history. So when we were offered these beautiful replica Commonwealth Halfcrown dated ‘1652’ we jumped at the chance.
The reverse has two sets of shields conjoined that look like a pair of old fashioned trousers.
The obverse has the Commonwealth shield in a wreath. They are retro dated 1652 and are struck in Proof condition and come in a capsule. You can tell it was made to look like the Shilling because there is ‘II*VI’ above the shields. That stood for Two Shillings and Sixpence.
Beautiful pieces and make a good space holder until you are able to get the real thing. We are sure you will love them.
