We have put together a nice type set of the King George V silver and bronze coins. The silver
coins are the 500 fine issue and all coins will be in Fine condition. Remember that these
were the first British coins to be struck in 500 fine Silver plus you get the three bronze coins
You get the 1935 Silver Jubilee Crown, the Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and
Threepence all in silver plus the bronze Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing. All coins have been
carefully selected to match in quality.
King George V’s coinage was an important turning point in British coinage and the 1935
Crown was the first commemorative crown ever issued in this country.
The Halfpenny of King George V is the most difficult bronze denomination
to get, especially if you are trying to put a date set together. These
early dates 1911-25 are the most difficult of the dates to find, so put them
together and you have the most difficult of the most difficult.
Each coin is in selected circulated condition and remember that they are
almost 100 years old. You will get each date 1911-1925 for your collection. It
took the person who made up the sets a long time to do it and even then he had to go out and
buy some dates to complete the collections.
This is the
complete date set of Queen Elizabeth II Florins.
You get every date from 1953 to 1967 the last Florin ever issued for circulation. That
includes the one year type 1953, the scarce and rare dates 1954, 1958 and 1959. All coins are
in selected circulated condition and remember the newest coin is now over 50 years old.
If previous demand is anything to go by, this set of Florins will fly out. After all the Florin
is the most difficult denomination to get.
We could not believe it when we were checking a competitor’s website; they are offering a set
of World War I Pennies 1914-1918. Yes, their set comes in a smart case, but they are
charging £79.50 for the collection. Also, the coins they illustrated were cleaned, we guess they think that improves
their appearance, but it actually depreciates their worth.
Our coins are average circulated just as theirs are, but ours are natural, we have not
cleaned them. We do not supply a case, on the other hand our set is priced at £9.50 and
theirs is priced at £79.50. We have not named the other company, but if you really must know,
just call us and we will tell you. We did not want to shame them any more than their price of
£79.50 shames them already.
We have just 200 sets available and with all the interest in the First World War, as this
year is the 100th anniversary of its end, they should sell quickly.
World War II lasted from 1939-1945, during that period our coinage was still
struck in 500 fine Silver. That was because cupro-nickel was of much more use
to the War Effort than silver. The Sixpence or Tanner was one of our most loved coins,
until decimalization took over.
We are offering the complete date set of World War II Silver Sixpences, 1939-
1945. You get 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944 and 1945 Sixpences all struck in
500 fine Silver. They are in Fine condition and make an interesting display piece when
you are talking about the War. Unless you are a certain age, you might never have seen
a sixpence, let alone a silver one.
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.
