Victoria, Jubilee Head Halfcrown (Very Fine)

Queen Victoria finally allowed the design of her coinage to be changed after 50 years. We suppose a 67 year old woman does look a little different from a 17 year old girl. Never-the-less in 1887 to celebrate her Golden Jubilee she allowed a new portrait to be used on her coinage, this of course, became known as the Jubilee Head design. The Half Crown with this Jubilee Head design was only issued from 1887 until 1892, when the design was changed again. The Queen hated this Jubilee Head design because it showed her with a tiny crown on her head, almost like a toy. The coins were struck in Sterling Silver and personally, we think the design is rather attractive. This product comes in 'very fine' condition. Dates will be of our choice and to be honest, most of the coins on offer are the first year of issue (1887), because that is the most available date of the series. Nice high grade coins at prices that won’t hurt your pocket and remember that these coins are now 125 years old!
