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.

5 Silver Threepences for Christmas Pudding

The Royal Mint Stopped making silver threepences for circulation in 1944, but the later dates are more difficult to find, as most were made for export. We have just bought a huge lot of King George V and King George VI Silver Threepences, 2,300 pieces to be exact. At Christmas, these are used as gifts and also to go into the Christmas pudding. the person who finds it gets a present. These are not separated either by type or date, when the order comes in, someone will just count them out and put them in an envelope. They make excellent holiday gifts. They are circulated but there are no dogs, we made sure of that. A great Christmas Gift!

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.
