In the early reign of King George V the coins were struck in Sterling Silver
925 fine Silver. After 1920 the coins were struck in 500 fine silver. The
largest Sterling Silver coin struck during the reign of King George V was the
Halfcrown. Condition of all coins available is Fine or better.
This is the middle type of coinage struck for Queen Victoria. It was only
issued from 1887-1892 and was first issued for her Golden Jubilee. Thus
this coinage became known as Queen Victoria Jubilee Head coins.
