In 1953 Elizabeth II had her official Coronation, although she had been our Queen since the death of her father, George VI, in 1952. To celebrate this new monarch, the Royal Mint issued a complete set of new coinage from the Farthing to the Crown.

The legend on the 1953 coins is unique; therefore they are an important type and have to be added to any type collection of Queen Elizabeth II. The complete collection includes the Farthing, Halfpenny, Penny, Brass Threepence, Sixpence, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Florin, Halfcrown and Crown.

All of the coins are one year type coins and all the coins are in Uncirculated condition. Of course over the past 51 years they will have mellowed a bit, but all the coins are Uncirculated, that means they never circulated or were used.

In 1953 the Royal Mint issued the Halfcrown to the Farthing in a plastic wallet and because of the plastic they used, many of the coins will have toned or mellowed. Only top quality coins were used in these sets. Each set comes in a Sandhill display case, so you can see both sides of the coins without having to take them out.

Over 51 years old, in Uncirculated condition and only issued for one year, what more can you ask for…?
