We think that this 1952 Crown from South Africa is the best value in the series. It is the last crown struck for King George VI, it is their first commemorative crown, it has two dates on it 1652-1952 and best of all it has an old three masted sailing ship on it.
It was issued for the 300th Anniversary of the founding of Cape Town. Today it is almost impossible to find any silver crowns in South Africa; they have all been either exported or melted down for their Silver content. We can offer this one year only type Crown in Choice Uncirculated.

Nigeria, 1959 1/2d

This bronze Halfpenny from the Federation of Nigeria is a one year type coin, the last coin of Nigeria with the legend Queen Elizabeth the Second. The coins are Brilliant Uncirculated but have mellowed just a bit over the past 59 years. They have a hole in them, so the locals could carry them on a string. These coins are much more difficult to find than the catalogue indicates, in fact we cannot remember the last time we had some. Priced at less than catalogue and a difficult coin to find.

South Africa, 1952 3D Uncirculated

In 1952 King George VI died. The last ever British Silver Threepence was issued in his name up to 1944. But in South Africa they issued a Silver Threepence for circulation in 1952 and that is the coin we have on offer today. You have the bare head portrait of the King on one side and a plant and sticks of wood on the other. An interesting memento and if you have one of our George VI sets, even more interesting.
