I've just won this on eBay - the scarcest of the old 'round pounds' made for circulation - the 2011 Edinburgh 1 coin.
Very nice!

Gorgeous shilling

Had a huge buy up of Half Crowns!

Will just show a couple as the others will be revealed on the way back thread.





1912 VF - a less common year





1913 gF - A very scarce coin and 2nd rarest of the KGV coins besides proofs and 1930.

1911 - 1913 Half crowns are not that common, whereas 1914 - 1919 are more common.

I also bought 1916, 17, 25,26, 27 and 30
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

1930 Halfcrown - condition about fine



With 809k coins issued, 1930 is the scarcest year back to the early 1900s, excluding proofs.
Just 5x as many coins as the rare 1905 half crown. No King George VI or Elizabethan coin has a mintage that low.

A reasonable coin and defintely a not cheap one. But it fills a big gap!

1950 Shilling - Proof strike, toning

It has "fuzzies" on it from the case, if you get to wondering what are the little black squiggles.

Fuzzies or no fuzzies - that coin is beautiful.

You got yourself a gem there Paralyse.

Lovely 1836 .925 Silver Groat/Four pence William IV. Possible B/E Coin I much nicer in the hand Stunning lustre which has just caused that reflection that looks like someone painted it with emulsion lol.

Zookeeperz, I would say someone may have silver dipped or cleaned it with some emulsion a few years ago. The telltale gunk is at 3 oclock on the reverse.

Seems pointless as that groat is stunning and in at least EF and probably AU condition (By British standards!).

However there is a small chance its original luster - either way a stunning piece, most W4 silver I see is worn to death.

Here's a good WIV Half crown for you then. Even the weakness in the centre of the reverse I would suggest is weak strike rather than wear as the high points in the drapery still look near perfect:

Thanks @Princetane!

PaddyB, that gorgeous coin is provoking irrational emotions. I have a sudden desire to own one immediately!! But I can't right now, but now that's definitely going on the "list"...

This new arrival will be posted in the Go Back thread later but for now I'll show it here.

1923 Half Crown

I don't know the grading system very well for British coins but my US grade is AU53 or so. Beautiful mostly-full luster with some light rub on the high points.
