George V, Farthing (Mint Darkened),1916

During World War One the Royal Mint darkened the Farthings they issued. This was because they felt that bright coins would cause reflection and allow the enemy to shoot at those with bright coins. To find these coins in Uncirculated condition is rare, as they quickly rubbed on the high points and became circulated. We just bought a group of nice Uncirculated examples that were put away in 1916, 102 years ago. The Monarch is, of course, King George V and the Farthing was the smallest denomination at the time. A very difficult coin to find in such a high grade. The current catalogue price is £20.00 and you would be lucky to find them at that price. But we bought 50 examples put away 102 years ago and we are going to sell them for what we think is a reasonable price or just £14.95, but once these 50 pieces are gone who knows where we will find any more...

Elizabeth II, The Last Florin 1967, Brilliant Uncirculated.

Elizabeth II, The Last 1967 Florin. Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1967 the Royal Mint issued its last ever Florin for circulation. Although it had an exact decimal equivalent, the 10p, they decided to stop making them. As most collectors know the florin is the most difficult of the denominations to get. We can offer the last ever, the 1967 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for just £4.00. At one time a number of years ago, we had to pay that price to get them. But a fortunate find, in our basement, allows us to offer them to you. Limit of three coins per collector and well worth having.
