The British History Coin Collection


The British History Coin Collection

Today you can own the EIGHT coins that no collection should be without. Included are coins with some of the most remarkable stories - rich in British history and with dates spanning over 100 years to tell the story of our heritage.

A fascinating collection- with many stories to tell

The British History Coin collection features coins such as the Victorian farthing whose story is entwined with the Penny Farthing bicycle, or the Festival of Britain Crown – one of only two crowns issued during the reign of King George VI.

You can also own an ORIGINAL first year of issue 50p from 1969, or a SILVER George VI Florin. The florin has a controversial and long history, first appearing in 1849 and is considered the first ever decimal denomination.

Also included is a lucky sixpence, known for keeping pilots safe during war, and numismatic first and lasts such as the special last round pound design or the first ever bimetallic coin and decimal crown.

Coins that would take years to source

Together these coins tell the stories of British history, and that’s what makes them so popular with collectors. This means that it could take years to source a full collection like this one, making the limited number of sets available in high demand.
