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.
We all admired the excellent award winning movie, ‘The King’s Speech’ in 2010 which showed
King George VI’s determination and strength. Now you can own original coins from the reign of
George VI issued from 1937-1952, a Coronation Stamp issued in 1937 and a banknote issued just after
World War II.
You’ll receive the coins that were actually used during George VI’s reign: the bronze Farthing,
Halfpenny and Penny, plus the brass Threepence, Silver Threepence and cupronickel Sixpence, Shilling,
Florin and Half Crown. These are original, genuine coins and were actually used as money in the reign
of King George VI.
You also get an Uncirculated British Armed Forces 2nd series Pound issued by Command of the Army
Council in 1948. To top it off, you get a Mint stamp issued in 1937 for George VI’s Coronation, issued
and overprinted for use in British Morocco. This collection is exclusive to Coincraft.
The entire collection comes in a presentation wallet loaded with interesting and historic information.
The brass threepence was first issued under King George VI and there are a number
of difficult or Scarce dates. 1950 is one of those. It was issued after the end
of World War II and towards the end of the King’s reign.
The coins are in Fine condition and if you know someone born in 1950 this coin
would make an excellent gift. The bare head of the King on one side and the thrift
plant on the other side.
In 1938 our Prime Minister Chamberlain met with Hitler, a lot good that did us. The Bren
Light Machine Gun entered the British Army, now did us a lot of good. The Beano was first
put on sale and that gave all of us a laugh.
Our King was George VI, who had been on the throne for only about a year. The smallest
silver coin struck for circulation was the Silver Threepence, even though at the same time a
brass threepence was actually being struck as well.
We can offer this George VI 1938 Silver Threepence in Fine condition and it is a date that
is not all that easy to find.
