George V, Sterling Silver Halfcrown

British coins were always known for the high quality of Silver that the governments had used in their striking. Going back to King Edward I (1272-1307), the silver was so high quality that the coins were illegally exported, melted down, and lower grade silver was issued in its place. British coins up to and including 1919 were struck in Sterling Silver; the highest denomination struck for regular issue was the Halfcrown. A Halfcrown was Two Shillings and Sixpence or equivalent to 12.5 Pence. The Last Sterling Silver Halfcrowns were issued under King George V from 1911-1919. We have a nice selection of these now difficult to find coins. Dates will be of our choice and the more you order the more different dates we will give you. You have the bare head of the King on one side and a crowned coat of arms on the other side. The coins on offer were struck in Sterling Silver or 925 fine Silver and they are all in Fine condition. Dates are of our choice... A very important, significant and historically important coin. There is just something about a real silver coin…

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.
