During World War II Silver was not that important for the War Effort, so they still struck our coins in Silver. The largest denomination struck at the time was the Halfcrown, Two Shillings and Sixpence. It was both the biggest and highest denomination struck during World War II. We have managed to put together complete date sets of the Silver George VI Halfcrown as issued in World War II. That means you'll get the 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945 King George VI Silver Halfcrowns. We don’t believe that we have ever offered this collection before. The Halfcrown was a large and valuable coin at the time; name me any youngster who wouldn’t have been over the moon to own one. You are getting the opportunity to own all the dates 1939-1945 issued during World War II. The coins are in selected circulated condition.

Victoria, Double Florin Extremely Fine, 1887

When Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee in 1887, she not only allowed them to change her portrait but also to issue a new denomination. That was the Double Florin which was equivalent to Four Shillings. It was almost crownsized and struck in Sterling Silver. Today we have an equivalent coin, but we call it a 20 Pence. Shows what time and inflation will do to money. The Double Florin was also known as the Bar Maids ruin. After she had had a few drinks, the bar maid would often give change for a Crown and not a Double Florin. That Shilling difference was a lot of money and came directly from the Bar Maids wages. This Double Florin was only made from 1887-1890. In the past we have offered the Queen Victoria Double Florin in Fine and even in Very Fine, now we can offer them in Extremely Fine condition. These are super coins and most are dated 1887, remember they are struck in Sterling Silver and they have the Jubilee Head portrait of the Queen.

Elizabeth II, Florin Brilliant Uncirculated, 1962

When they were waiting for Decimal coins, collectors were buying all the dates they didn’t have of the pre-decimal coins for their collections. The prices went through the roof and factoring inflation and the cost of living, these coins are much more reasonable today, than they were 50 years ago. The coins in most cases are still as difficult as they were then to find in Uncirculated condition, it is just that in today’s money, they are actually much more reasonable.
