@wael4979 Nice! Is this a groat? It seems like it's in pretty good condition, so yes, pretty rare, I'd say!

Sorry, I did not see this request for info before.
This I believe is a Henry VI Groat, Rosette issue so dating 1430 to 1431, minted in London. Ref is Spink 1858.
Not particularly rare - Henry VI groats are not scarce surprisingly. My book (2018 issue) gives 60 in Fine and 200 in VF - I would put this better than Fine with a very nice portrait.

The rarest 50p coin the 2009 blue Peter Olympic coin only 19,700 sold. I was lazy and posted the change checker stock photo instead of my own example

I use to love watching Blue Peter when I was a kid and living in England. I'm nearly 63 now and living in Australia. Is Blue Peter still on TV now?

Thanks for sharing Rob.
I think I remember seeing that, just before I left the UK in 1969.

Recent addition and a coin I've been after for a long time - a 1927 threepence. Mintage: 15,022. Issued only in Proof Sets but this one appears to have got into circulation!

Not one of my rarest British coins, but definitely one of my prettiest. This lovely toner, sometimes categorized as a pattern, is a very proof-like 1848 "Godless" florin, ESC 801, which is the milled-edge variety. This type, without the usual "Dei Gratia" in the obverse legend, was issued again in 1849. After that, from 1851-1887, God was reinstated and all the legends appeared in the same lettering as the beloved Gothic Crown of 1847 and 1853. (Yes, some doubling can be seen on the obverse...not a plus, to my mind, and the only reason I could afford this coin some 35-40 years ago.)

That is incredible, Daltonista!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Vicki & I both appreciate the kind comments! (We've been together since 1983, I believe, and we'd all be blushing if I told you what a cheap young thing she was back then.)
