George V, Penny Brilliant Uncirculated, 1936

This King George V Penny was issued 83 years ago in 1936, but it has a most interesting history. In 1936 we had three Kings, George V died, Edward VIII became King, although he never had a Coronation and finally his brother became George VI. But the real secret is that most of the coins with the portrait of King George V were actually struck while Edward VIII was on the throne. We bought a fantastic little hoard of these the largest bronze coin issued at the time. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, which considering they are 83 years old is quite fantastic. Add that into the history of 1936 and you have a heck of wonderful coin. The condition is top quality and the history is amazing, but supplies are limited.

Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1956

In 1956 the Royal Mint issued the last Farthing ever! I guess that it was too low of a denomination to be of any use. We have a nice small group of Brilliant Uncirculated 1956 Queen Elizabeth II Farthings. These are the last Farthing to ever be struck. The Mint didn’t make a lot of them and they are the most difficult date of Queen Elizabeth II to find. Get them while you can, remember there were 4 to a Penny and 960 to the pound. These are now 63 years old and in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
