George V and a George VI Pair of Silver Sixpences. All coins are original and genuine and struck by the Royal Mint, the ones that they are selling and the ones that we are selling are exactly the same. They were made for circulation and are struck in 500 fine Silver. Check out the Royal Mint website and you will see that they are charging £26.00 for each coin or £52.00 for the pair.
Well not actually coins that sailed on The Titanic, as those are all at the bottom of the
ocean, but rather two coins that were issued in 1912 and could have been used by people
who sailed on The Titanic.
The two coins are the Sterling Silver Threepence and the bronze Penny of 1912. They were
both issued under King George V, who had been King for just 2 years at the time. Both coins
are in Very Good condition and you get both Titanic 1912 coins for a very reasonable price.
Iknow it sounds strange, what with the Royal Mint issuing commemorative coins almost daily, but the first commemorative coin for this country was the 1935
Crown. It was issued to honour the Silver Jubilee of King George V 1910-1935. There were no other commemorative coins for this country before the 1935 Crown, although we still don’t know about the Gothic Crown.
It has a rather unusual rendition of St. George slaying the dragon and we were the first
people to say it looked like a rocking horse. From then it rapidly became known as
‘The Rocking Horse Crown’. You must remember that this country was in depression
as was the rest of the world, so a Crown or Five Shilling piece was a lot of money at
We have some nice Extremely Fine examples of this first-ever British commemorative
Crown to offer you. Extremely Fine is a very high grade and considering the
coin is now 83 years old, we think it is a winner.
