George VI, Halfcrown Choice Uncirculated, 1943
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.
