Victoria, Crown Fine, 1892

In 1887 Queen Victoria finally allowed her portrait on the coins to be changed. After all it had been about 50 years since it was changed and she was no longer the 18 year old who first came to the throne. It was her Golden Jubilee and thus her coins became known as her Jubilee Coins. The Crowns on offer are all dated 1892. They are struck in Sterling Silver or 925 silver, You have Queen Victoria on one side with a rather small crown on her head. The reverse has a crowned shield within a garter. We can offer these Sterling Crowns in Fine.

Picture of George V, Three Kings Sixpence Fine, 1936

George V, Three Kings Sixpence Fine, 1936

These 1936 silver sixpences have the portrait of King George V on them, but they have a far more interesting history. King George V died and his son became King Edward VIII and most of these Sixpences were struck during the reign of King Edward VIII. In December of that year Edward abdicated and his brother became King George VI. While the portrait is that of King George V who knows who was actually on the throne when they were struck. It is an interesting conundrum which will never be figured out.

George V, Silver Threepence, 1936
