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.
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.
