Victoria, Half Farthing Very Fine

The copper Half Farthing of Queen Victoria is a most unusual coin. They only made them in copper and most were used overseas, but they were of course legal tender and used in this country. We recently bought an old dealers hoard of these coins, most are dated 1844 or 1843 and they are in Very Fine condition. We last bought a hoard about ten years ago and this new hoard was very timely, as we had almost run out of them. They are not a coin that you can just go out and buy a quantity when you need it, they are not easy to get. This coin has always been one of my favourite denomination, a Half Farthing just sounds so unusual. The last time this denomination was used was under Queen Victoria and they were only struck in the early part of her reign, when the coins were copper and not bronze.

Elizabeth II, The Last Florin 1967, Brilliant Uncirculated.

Elizabeth II, The Last 1967 Florin. Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1967 the Royal Mint issued its last ever Florin for circulation. Although it had an exact decimal equivalent, the 10p, they decided to stop making them. As most collectors know the florin is the most difficult of the denominations to get. We can offer the last ever, the 1967 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for just £4.00. At one time a number of years ago, we had to pay that price to get them. But a fortunate find, in our basement, allows us to offer them to you. Limit of three coins per collector and well worth having.
