George III, Halfpenny Fine, 1806

During the reign of King George III there was a great shortage of small change. The last type of Halfpenny issued for this Monarch were struck in 1806 and 1807. We recently purchased a nice group of the 1806 issue, the first year of issue in Fine and Very Fine condition. You have the bust of King George III dressed as a Roman on one side and the seated figure of Britannia on the other side. These were the last copper George III halfpennies issued. After the Currency Reform Act of 1816, they didn’t bother to issue any halfpennies.

Tristan da Cunha, 70th Anniversary Battle of Britain Crown

In 2010 the world celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, one of our most important victories during World War II. ‘TDC’ or Tristan da Cunha honoured this event by issuing a rather attractive and important Crown. You have H.M. the Queen on the obverse and a battle scene on the reverse. There are three airplanes fighting it out in the sky over Britain, to the left is a full colour British Flag, enamelled. This crown sized piece has been gold plated, struck in proof condition and then placed in a protective capsule to protect the finish of the coin. As our supply is not all that great, it could be the last time we can offer them. Beautiful and priced to please most collectors, but supplies are limited.
