A rarely seen collection of every coin from the reigns of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II…
Almost 500 years ago during the reign of King Henry VIII, the first Half Crowns in British history were minted. By the time the last coin was issued more than half a century ago in 1967, the Half Crown had become legendary — renowned as much for its stunning designs as for its unique place in history. Larger than a U.S. half dollar, it is a treasured keepsake and a magnificent symbol of the profound influence of British coinage.
Coins Included: 30 Half Crowns minted from 1937 to 1967. Coins issued from 1937 to 1946 are 50% Pure Silver. Coins issued from 1947 to 1967 are Cupronickel. No coin was issued for circulation in 1952.
