History of the Coin:
The half crown was a denomination of British money, equivalent to two shillings and sixpence, or one-eighth of a pound. The half crown was first issued in 1549, in the reign of Edward VI. No half crowns were issued in the reign of
Mary, but from the reign of Elizabeth I half crowns were issued in every reign except Edward VIII, until the coins were discontinued in 1967.
These particular half crowns were the in celebration of Queen Victoria’s Jubilee (celebrating her 50 years as queen) and were minted between 1887-1892. They have the most detail of any coin I have come across since I have been ringing out coins and are truly stunning. The band of the coin has the royal crown, St. George slaying a dragon, and many other highly detailed and ornate design work on the ring. This heirloom quality sterling silver piece is very unique.
