George V Real Silver Threepence

During the reign of King George V there were two different types of silver coins issued for circulation. The real silver coins that were struck in Sterling Silver and the coins struck in half silver. The real silver coins were only struck from 1911-1919, the half silver coins were struck from 1920-1936. The smallest sterling silver coin issued for general use was the Threepence, also known as a Joey. You have the bare head of the King on one side and the value within a wreath on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. The coins are circulated, but in selected circulated condition and they all date from 1911 to 1919 only.

1991 Deluxe Proof Set

For those of you who don’t know what a palindrome is, it is a word or series of numbers that reads the same from right to left as it does from left to right. Banknote collectors call serial numbers that read this way, radar notes. The 1991 Proof Set is just such an animal. We can offer this Proof Set in either the blue regular case of issue or the red leather deluxe case of issue, the choice is yours. Each set contains the £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p plus the Royal Mint dated medal. Important: the 10p and the 50p were NOT struck for circulation. So if you want either of these coins for your collection you will have to get them from a Royal Mint set. In America if you had a set with one coin, let alone two coins not struck for circulation, the price would be in the high hundreds if not the low thousands of Pounds…

Maldives 1/2 Larin 18-19th Century

Many of you have been to the Maldives on holiday, but I’ll bet you have never seen this coin. It is a 1/2 Larin issued at the end of the 1700’s beginning of the 1800’s. It has Arabic writing on both sides, they converted to Islam by the 13th Century. The condition is Good Very Fine and they are a wonderful small coin, one that we have never offered before. We would guess that most people who live in the Maldives have never even seen one, let alone owned one. Supplies are limited and it is the first time that we have been able to offer it for sale.

1926 Sixpence circulated

In 1926 a Princess, now Queen Elizabeth II was born. Her grandfather King George V was on the throne at the time. The Sixpence was still being struck in silver. John Logie Baird demonstrated TV and the country had a terrible General Strike. For some reason the coins of 1926 are not easy to get. So we were very happy when we were offered a small group of the 1926 Silver Sixpence, a most useful and collected denomination. The coins are used, but in selected circulated condition. Honour our great Monarch, add a silver sixpence of her birth year to your collection. After all Queen Elizabeth II is the longest serving Monarch that this great nation has ever had.
