It is strange but true; the Royal Mint did not strike a lot of the bronze coins that were issued
in this country. In fact at one point they were using two private mints to strike coins for
them. The Heaton Mint which has a mintmark ‘H’ as on this coin and the Kings Norton Mint
which used a ‘KN’ mintmark. Interesting enough, both private mints have gone out of business.
This Penny is dated 1918, which was during World War I and we guess the Royal Mint had
too many other things on its plate. The mintmark is below Britannia to the left of the date. The
coins on offer are in Fine condition and are rather difficult to find these days.
The Royal Mint didn’t strike this 1918 Penny but the Mint Birmingham Ltd did. Why not
add one to your collection?
It has been quite some time since we were last able to offer you the complete date set of King
Edward VII Pennies. To be honest, there just are not all that many around to make up collections.
We were saved by a friend, who took the time to sort the hoard of Edward VII Pennies
that he had accumulated over 20 years, by date and then make up complete date collections for
us. Not only did he make up date collections, but at a price that allows us to offer them to you
at a special price.
You get one of each date of King Edward VII Penny struck from 1902-1910. That means,
1902, 1903, 1904, 1905, 1906, 1907, 1908, 1909 and 1910. Every coin is over 100 years old
and while circulated, are still in very reasonable condition. You get all 9 different dates, which
normally would sell for £24.50 as individual coins.
Edward II was the 4th child of King Edward I and his coinage consisted only of Pennies,
Halfpennies and Farthings. The Penny being the largest of his coins is struck in silver and
rather difficult to get. They look very similar to his Father’s coins, can be only told apart by
the dies that were used. It has been many years since we were able to offer these almost 700
year old Silver Pennies.
This group were minted in London and the coins on affer here are in Fine condition. The
supply is limited and many collectors are missing a coin of this early Monarch. Add one to
your collection while you can.
