First coin of mine for 1891 is a Half Crown!





This is the first of my Jubilee Heads issued between 1887 and 1892. I don't like the portrait, Victoria looks chicken necked and the crown is too comically small.

It is easy to see why it lasted just 6 years before the Old head arrived and it was never used on the Bronze or on any colonial coins either.

Like most of my 19th century pieces, the coin is well worn and this one grades around gVG.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

My second is a Swiss 20 Rappen, surprisingly a coin you would still see today.



Quite nice but a little stained

Again some superlative British coins from you, love the Crowns as always and a nice Penny.

Loved that story about May Day too - great to get some context behind things being issued.

Before I posted a Turkish coin, which I took off as I realised the date was Year 13 not Year 16 (The Arabic symbols for 2, 3 and 6 are VERY similar to the non Arabic eye).

The coin will be coming back when we reach 1888 - so don't worry!

Here is a very tired 3 Pence dated 1891:
