Benefactor DonnaML Posted March 18 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted March 18 I already posted my four types of British silver crowns from 1900-1950, but here are some other British coins from that period: Edward VII gold sovereign & half-sovereign (both 1910): George V gold sovereign (1917) & half-sovereign (1913): (I no longer have any gold coins issued by George VI, and they've become much too expensive for me to try to reacquire one.) The rest of what I'm posting here consists of a few examples each of a number of different denominations, picked out of the hundreds of minor British copper and silver coins I've accumulated since childhood. I guess they're the best of a mediocre lot, but I certainly enjoyed collecting them when I was young, both at local coin stores and on family vacations to the Caribbean to islands that still used British coins. I'd almost forgotten what a little Anglophile I was back then -- not surprisingly, I suppose, given that my mother spent most of the war years there after arriving on the first Kindertransport, and had positive feelings towards the British despite all the difficult memories. George VI farthing, 1937 Victoria halfpenny and penny (both 1901) Halfpennies from George V (1913, 1921, 1923, 1931), pennies from George V (1928) and George VI (1943) A George VI silver threepence from 1944 (one of the last years before it was discontinued, issued "for Colonial use only," see S. 4085), and a nickel brass dodecagonal threepence from 1946, the scarcest year of the type (see S. 4112) -- not that either is worth anything given their poor condition, and not that condition was something I cared about as a child, or has anything to do with why I've kept all of these for so many years. Sixpences from Edward VII (1903 & 1910) and George V (1914 & 1924), shillings from George V (1914 & 1916) and George VI (1937 & 1942) Florins from Edward VII (1903), George V (1924) and George VI (1949), half-crowns from George V (1917) and George VI (1946) 9 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
