2 Worn Victorian Pennies

We've just found two dates of Victorian bronze pennies dated 1890 and 1891. They are worn and circulated, but they are over 125 years old and have seen a lot of life. It is not the sort of coins that we would normally offer, but we felt making the price reasonable enough, would attract collectors. The dates show but the coins are worn. On the other hand you can have both the 1890 and the 1891 Queen Victoria Young Head bronze pennies for a special price.

George V Penny 1936 Brilliant Uncirculated

This King George V Penny was issued 83 years ago in 1936, but it has a most interesting history. In 1936 we had three Kings, George V died, Edward VIII became King, although he never had a Coronation and finally his brother became George VI. But the real secret is that most of the coins with the portrait of King George V were actually struck while Edward VIII was on the throne. We bought a fantastic little hoard of these the largest bronze coin issued at the time. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, which considering they are 83 years old is quite fantastic. Add that into the history of 1936 and you have a heck of wonderful coin. The condition is top quality and the history is amazing, but supplies are limited.

Rare 1950 Penny Fine

The two lowest mintages of the old Penny coin were struck in 1950 and 1951 during the reign of King George VI. In 1950 they only made 240,000 coins that means for £1000 you could have bought all the 1950 Pennies they ever made. Until very recently numismatists have always thought that all the 1950 Pennies were shipped to Bermuda for use after World War II. Now we know that this information is wrong. They were also sent to the Bahamas in the West Indies. How do we know? Because a good friend went to the Bahamas 50 years ago and advertised in the newspapers to buy these coins. For the past 50 years these coins have lain in his safe deposit box untouched. Now these coins were actually used in circulation, because after the War there was a great shortage of small change. The island has a very salty atmosphere and thus the coins are very scarce in the higher grades. The coins on offer are in Fine and Very Fine condition and remember they only struck a total of 240,000 1950 Pennies for circulation. Most collections are missing this date of King George VI Penny, but now you can change all that. Now you can add a Key Date 1950 Penny to your collection, while this Bahamas Hoard lasts. But there are far more collectors who want this coin than there are coins to satisfy those needs. You have been warned….

1949 1D BU

In 1949 the Royal Mint changed the legend on our coinage, IND IMP was omitted. This was due to India gaining it’s independence from this country and there was no longer a reason to have it on the legend. There were only two more pennies after this issue and both of these are Rare and very expensive, especially in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. If you want an important type coin at a price that won’t break the bank, then this 1949 Penny without IND IMP is the coin for you. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and came from a bag that was found in a bank in the United States. They had been there since 1949! These are priced right to entice and delight you and at our price it might be interesting to buy a couple of extra pieces for trading with other collectors.
