George III, Crown Fair

In 1816 the government made all of the older coins no longer legal tender. They then issued a whole series of new coins, which were, of course, legal tender. This is the first type of Crown or Five Shillings to be issued for King George III. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were issued only from 1818-1820. This coin is now proving very hard to get and it has been some time since we last had enough to offer them to our collectors. Dates of our choice, but we can offer them in Fair and Very Good condition. Here we present the coin in Fair condition. A very important coin as it was the first of the ‘new’ coinage to be struck.

Picture of Edward VII, Penny, 1903

Edward VII, Penny, 1903

King Edward VII was the son of Queen Victoria and because she ruled for so long, his rule was rather short. In fact coins of Edward VII were only issued from 1902-1910, but that also means that all of his coins are over 100 years old. This issue we are offering the bronze Pennies of King Edward VII by date. All coins are in Very Good condition with the details and the date clearly legible. You have the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful seated Britannia on the other side.

Picture of Edward VII, Halfcrown Fine

Edward VII, Halfcrown Fine

Edward VII had a very short reign, 1901-1910, because his Mother, Queen Victoria, lived so long. Much of his coinage is difficult to get and in some cases rather expensive. All of his silver coins were struck in Sterling Silver and a crown was only issued in 1902 for his Coronation. So we offer the Sterling Silver Halfcrown, the largest denomination silver coin stuck for regular usage. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful crowned shield on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but no rare dates are included. Available here in Fine condition.

Picture of Victoria, Shilling Uncirculated, 1887

Victoria, Shilling Uncirculated, 1887

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 shilling in uncirculated grade.
