We have a small hoard of Uncirculated and Choice Uncirculated 1944 King George VI
Silver Florins. The Florin is the most difficult denomination to get in most series.
These Florins and beautiful silver coins, when a coin was struck in silver and you knew it. There is something about silver that makes you feel good, after all it is a precious metal. You have the bare head of King George VI on the obverse and a crowned Rose on the reverse. The Mint would only continue to use Silver in our coinage for just two more years. A scarce denomination and choice quality, what more could you ask for? The coin presented here is the Uncirculated Silver Florin.
A nice group of King George VI Wren Farthings in Uncirculated condition. They have
touches of lustre, but have seen no wear, they mellowed over the years as most copper
and bronze coins will.
These are Uncirculated not Brilliant Uncirculated, and as such, they are priced at a lot less money. Here we present the 1952. Nice coins, worth having but supplies are limited. So if you want or need a date or two, best to get in quickly…
Many of the King George VI dates of brass threepences are Scarce and difficult to find, as most of the mintage was sent to our colonies overseas. The 1948 Brass Threepence is no exception. I believe that most of them went to the West Indies; after all even during a war the population needs coins to spend.
The brass threepence while a short series (1937-1967) is also one of our most popular series.
The new pound coin is based on this coin. The 1948 brass threepences are in Fine condition and difficult to find, many date collectors are missing this coin.
Here we present a small group of the 1944 King George VI Silver Sixpence on offer.
We can offer the World War II 1944 Silver Sixpence in Choice Uncirculated or Gem
Uncirculated condition. In either case they are fantastic coins to see and own. But don't forget that supplies are limited.
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.
We have just bought a small group of the 1943 World War II Silver Halfcrowns in
Uncirculated and Choice Uncirculated condition. King George VI was on the throne and
because of necessity our coinage was still being struck in silver, be it half fine silver.
The 1943 Halfcrown is the largest denomination struck at the time. A halfcrown for those
of you who have forgotten is Two Shillings and Sixpence or half a dollar in local London talk.
We have them in two very high grades and very difficult to usually get, Uncirculated and
Choice Uncirculated. Remember in 1947 they took silver out of our coinage.
