Own 5 of the most infamous British coins in one complete set

British coinage has had its fair share of controversy, and now you can own five of the most infamous coins in one special limited edition set.

Spanning centuries of numismatic history, each set includes:

  • Henry III Long Cross Penny - 'The Clipped Coin'
  • George II Halfpenny - 'The Hangman's Wages'
  • George III Shilling - 'The King's Shilling'
  • Queen Victoria Florin - 'The Godless Florin'
  • Queen Victoria Double Florin - 'The Barmaid's Ruin'

As you can imagine, these coins are becoming increasingly difficult to source. Consequently, although the set has a strict edition limit of just 195, we have only a very limited number still available.

We can't guarantee when we will next have any of these sets available, so to secure your set whilst we still have some remaining simply click 'enquire now' and one of our team will be in touch to complete your order. 

Your set will arrive ready to display in a Deluxe Wooden Presentation Case, complete with your Certificate of Authenticity and an informative card explaining the despicable tale behind each coin. Each coin is also individually housed in a protective capsule.

Secure yours now with a down payment of £69.50

If you don’t want to miss out, you can secure yours with a down payment of JUST £69.50 followed by 9 further interest free payments – just tick the instalment option at checkout.
