ELIZABETH II Sixpence 1970 Proof

Going back to the time of Elizabeth I, it was tradition for a bride to have a sixpence in her shoe. If her husband beat her, she had enough money to go somewhere and make it all better. Let’s be honest in the 16th Century it went a lot further than it does today. It’s a nice tradition and now a days, a sixpence in your shoe is for good luck, after all today you would have to have a couple of thousand pounds in your shoe. That way the bride would be lopsided going down the aisle. The last Sixpence made for circulation was in 1967, but in 1970 the Royal Mint issued a Proof Set with the last of the pre-decimal coins. Included was a Sixpence dated 1970 and in Proof condition. It is that last ever 1970 Sixpence that we now offer you and yes, they are in Proof condition.

1926 Sixpence circulated

In 1926 a Princess, now Queen Elizabeth II was born. Her grandfather King George V was on the throne at the time. The Sixpence was still being struck in silver. John Logie Baird demonstrated TV and the country had a terrible General Strike. For some reason the coins of 1926 are not easy to get. So we were very happy when we were offered a small group of the 1926 Silver Sixpence, a most useful and collected denomination. The coins are used, but in selected circulated condition. Honour our great Monarch, add a silver sixpence of her birth year to your collection. After all Queen Elizabeth II is the longest serving Monarch that this great nation has ever had.

1887 S 6d Uncirculated

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 sixpence featuring shield, in uncirculated grade.
