This 1920 set of King George V Silver coins is Very Important. Firstly because this year the set is now 100 years old and secondly because it is the first year that
our coins were not struck in Sterling Silver, but in 500 fine silver. The Government decided to reduce the silver content of our coins from 925 or Sterling Silver to 500
fine silver and that was that. This was the first time in living memory that our coins were not struck in Sterling Silver. This is a very important and significant set of
coins. You get the King George V Silver Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Threepence, all the silver coins that were struck that year. Remember that these were
the first coins struck in 500 fine silver and the last were in 1946 under King George VI. All coins are circulated but even though they are now 100 years old, the coins
have been carefully selected. There is no special packaging, as we believe our collectors want coins and not having to pay for fancy packaging. That way we can keep the
price down for you!
We have been putting these sets together for the past two years in anticipation of this important year. Supplies are limited and you may see one or two of the coins
being offered elsewhere, but not at our price and not the complete collection!
We have put together some sets of coins that were struck and used during World War I. That
means they were struck between 1914-1918 and that the silver coins are struck in Sterling
Silver. Each set contains a Sterling Silver Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Threepence
of King George V plus a bronze Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing.
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.
