Own five original coins issued during the First World War

It’s hard to imagine now, but at the start of the war for a solider in the trenches, or a family on the home front, a penny would have been able to buy a pint of milk, a loaf of bread or the stamp to post a letter.

Today you have the chance to own a special collection of five pennies dated from 1914-18, brought together in commemoration of all those who served or made the ultimate sacrifice during the Great War.

Five original coins – over 100 years old!

All of the coins in this set are over 100 years old – just think of the history that is carried in these old pieces of metal. These coins could have been used to buy a stamp to send a letter to a loved one back home, or the basic essentials for a family struggling to get by. 

Not only are these coins of huge historical value, but they are also of huge numismatic interest as sought-after collectables. Of special note is the 1918 penny; with The Royal Mint operating at full capacity, pennies at this time were struck by the Kings Norton and Heaton mints, and identified by the mintmark ‘KN’ or ‘H’.

Today you have the chance to own these fantastic pieces of history  - considering that the age and history of these coins, this is sure to attract huge levels of demand.
