Description

The very last year-date, of our very last predecimals

Predecimal coins were used in Britain for over 1,000 years! That incredible history came to an end fifty years ago: Britain changed from predecimal to decimal coinage in February 1971 but the very last ever predecimals were dated 1970. However, not ALL the pre-decimal coins of our Queen’s reign made it to 1970 – some stopped production EARLIER than that – some in preparation for the changeover and others because they were being dropped completely from the coinage line-up.

This incredible set has all 11 different pre-decimal coins of Her Majesty’s reign, and each one of them is the VERY LAST year-date!  Last ever: gold sovereign, crown, halfcrown, florin, shilling (English lions), shilling (Scottish lion), sixpence, threepence, penny, halfpenny and farthing.

And if that’s not enough, they are ALL in the highest quality issued for each coin!

And all of them are the last of their kind ever to feature the First Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Mary Gillick, giving them great significance to collectors.

For those who remember pre-decimal coinage – and even for those who don’t but who would like to share the beauty of their designs with family or friends – this is an exceptional set with EVERY coin in it the last of its kind, and the finest quality of its kind.

The very best of a thousand years of pre-decimal coinage!
