First bust, Reverse: Crowned cruciform shields, interlinked C's in angles, regnal year on edge. Good Very Fine / Extremely Fine struck on a large planchet almost like a trial strike, and Rare thus catalogues £4,750 in Extremely Fine
Edward VII had a very short reign, 1901-1910, because his Mother, Queen Victoria, lived so long. Much of his coinage is difficult to get and in some cases rather expensive. All of his silver coins were struck in Sterling Silver and a crown
was only issued in 1902 for his Coronation.
So we offer the Sterling Silver Halfcrown, the largest denomination silver coin
stuck for regular usage. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful crowned shield on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but no rare dates are
included. Available here in Fine condition.
The 1964 Halfcrown has always been one of the most difficult to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Even at the time of issue, it was not an easy coin to find in top grade. If you are missing this coin or you know someone born or married in 1964 then this coin would make a great gift. Supplies are limited, don’t miss out.
In 1967 the last Halfcrown ever was struck for circulation. So the 1966 is the penultimate
issue and in fact is many times harder to get in Uncirculated condition than the 1967
We have nice Uncirculated examples of the scarcer 1966 Queen Elizabeth II Halfcrown to
offer to our collectors. A lucky buy allowed us to offer them to you this issue. They are the
largest in both size and denomination that was struck for circulation, after all the crowns really
circulated in the 1960’s.
Add an Uncirculated 1966 Queen Elizabeth II Halfcrown to your collection; it is something
that not all that many collectors have…
