George II Sixpence Fine

This Sterling Silver Sixpence was issued by King George II in 1757 and 1758 that means that it is now 260 years old. The obverse has the mature bust of the King with long flowing hair and in a suit of armour. The reverse has four sets of crowned arms, England, Scotland, Ireland and France. He didn’t forget that we once owned part of France. The coins we offer are in Fine or better condition. The Sixpence is often used at weddings to bring good luck to the bride. Nice coins with a lot of history, Fine or better and very competitively priced. They would make an excellent wedding gift…

1947 6d Choice Unc

In 1947 for the first time, the Royal Mint issued coins without any silver in them. The legend would only last 2 years and then it would have to be changed, but the metal content would stay the same. We have high grade examples of this first cupro-nickel Sixpence, but supplies are very limited. This coin comes in 'Choice Uncirculated' condition.

George V 6d Set 1928-1936

In 1927 the Royal Mint changed the design of the Silver Sixpence to have six acorns on the reverse. As the 1927 issue was only issued in the Proof Set it is not really a coin issued for circulation. So we are offering the complete set of coins issued for circulation 1928-1936 in selected circulated condition. A total of nine different dates of this ‘6 Acorn’ coin. All the coins were originally struck at the Royal Mint and all are struck in 500 fine Silver.

1957 Sixpence Uncirculated

This is a strange coin; when I moved to London in 1968 this coin cost more in real terms than it does now. Everyone was trying to put together a set of pre-decimal coins in uncirculated condition and this is one of the coins that caused a little bit of trouble. Everyone puts away the first year of a new design and especially if it is a Coronation year (1953). The second year less are put away and as time goes on fewer and fewer are put away, until it gets very difficult to find uncirculated examples of some dates. We bought a small group of 1957 Queen Elizabeth II Sixpences in uncirculated condition. Not a rare coin, but one that is difficult to find if you need one. They are very inexpensive at just £3.95; they actually cost more in 1968 than I am charging now.
