We have put together some sets of coins that were struck and used during World War I. That
means they were struck between 1914-1918 and that the silver coins are struck in Sterling
Silver. Each set contains a Sterling Silver Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Threepence
of King George V plus a bronze Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing.
To mark the centenary of the beginning of World War I, INA, home of the Patinas, has issued a
handsome commemorative medallion. It has the bare head of King George V on one side and
Britannia standing with wings on the other side, reminiscent of the Official World War I war medal.
They are full crownsized and come in a four page descriptive folder; they are in Prooflike
Uncirculated condition and come in two finishes. On offer here is the silver plated VIP finish in a presentation package.
During World War One the silver coinage was struck in Sterling Silver and the bronze coins were really bronze.
We have put together type sets of the coins that were struck and used during World War One.
You get the Sterling Silver, Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Threepence plus the bronze Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing. All coins will have been minted between 1914 and
1918. Dates will vary in the set but all are original and genuine. The coins will be in Very Good or better condition, considering that they are at least 100 years old, I think this is quite nice
condition. The Royal Mint charge £150 in a case! The coins will come in individual envelopes to save space when you store them. Also that way you don’t have to pay £50.50 extra for a case you don’t want.
One of our competitors is 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, I 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 will not name 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 100 sets left and with all the interest in the First World War, as this year is the
101th anniversary of its end, they should sell quickly. Especially at nearly £70 less than the
