From almost the beginning of British time our coinage was called the LSD coinage, where there were 20 shillings to a pound and 12 pence to a shilling. This all changed with decimalization in 1971, so unless you are at least about 50 years old, you will not have remembered these coins. We have made up a fantastic set which is great for the children, grandchildren, friends and relations.
In this handsome presentation wallet we have included one of each of the pre-decimal coins that were issued, including one that had not been struck since 1956. You get the Churchill Crown, the last true crown ever, the Halfcrown (2/6), the Florin (2/-), Shilling (1/-), Sixpence, Brass Threepence, Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing all in Uncirculated condition. Of course as the newest coin is now some 50 years old they might have mellowed a little. But all of the coins are from original bags and have never seen circulation.
