In 1953 Queen Elizabeth II was crowned as successor to her Father King George VI. The 1953 coins
have a special legend and thus are a one year type coin. We went through one of the warehouses and
found a sack each of 1953 Pennies and 1953 English Shillings.
All coins are in selected circulated condition and remember that they are one year type coins. You get
the scarce 1953 Penny and the 1953 English Shilling both, but supplies are limited.
Well not actually coins that sailed on The Titanic, as those are all at the bottom of the
ocean, but rather two coins that were issued in 1912 and could have been used by people
who sailed on The Titanic.
The two coins are the Sterling Silver Threepence and the bronze Penny of 1912. They were
both issued under King George V, who had been King for just 2 years at the time. Both coins
are in Very Good condition and you get both Titanic 1912 coins for a very reasonable price.
This is the 1919 H Penny, the last to be struck outside the Mint. It was struck by the Heaton Mint in Birmingham, that is why it carries the H mint
mark. These are nice coins, used but better than average for a coin that is now over
90 years old. Add one to your collection and your folder will be closer to filling up…
