Australia did not have its own silver coins until King Edward VII and then that was for only one year: 1910. It wasn’t until 1911 that silver coins were struck under King George V on a regular basis. It has taken us two years to put these type sets. As they are type sets, the dates within each set will vary, but they were all struck between 1911-1936 and they were all struck in good Silver. The coins are Threepence, Sixpence, Shilling, and Florin all George V and all silver. The coins will grade Very Good and are in collectable condition. Please remember that we have very limited stock available.
We have put together a nice three-coin type set of the King George VI coins from Newfoundland. Of course, Newfoundland is now part of Canada, but since the time of Queen Victoria, they have issued their own coinage. Because the population of Newfoundland is so small, the mintages on these coins are also rather small and it is a country that no longer issues its own coins. You get the bronze Penny plus the Silver 5 Cents and the 10 Cents of King George VI, all issued under the name of Newfoundland. The coins are in Fine or better condition and we think the three coins make a nice type collection of their coinage. They don’t make coins of Newfoundland any more, but we have the set for your collection. The history behind the coins is most interesting and so are the coins themselves.
In the short reign of King Edward VII, only one crown was ever made, that was in 1902 for his Coronation. They have his bare head on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. They are struck in Sterling Silver and the mintage was just 250,000 Crowns.
This is a very important type coin, because if you want an Edward VII Crown you have to get 1902 one or none at all. We have been building our supplies up again and finally, have enough to offer this Edward VII Crown in Very Good condition.
