UK KEVII (1902-10) ‘big’ silver; shillings, florins, half crowns, crowns
These are an interesting set of coins, there’s not too many to collect and a few are quite rare and reasonably expensive – nice coins to have! I reckon they look good, too…
The crown was only issued in the first year, 1902.
The key date for the other ‘large’ ( shilling and bigger ) silver coins appears to be 1905 ,with coins produced then commanding high and impressive premiums in all grades.
Half crowns in particular are pricey, but it seems that the asking price across the range of coin types is coming down; still, a low mintage of only 166,000 for a 1905 half crown means they will still cost a pretty penny, whatever happens!
