1937-1946 Half Crowns


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I was out on Holiday a couple of weeks back and while there, I found a nice antique shop in which I spend quite some time going over some older world coins. Where I live, antique shops tend not to have old coins and local coin shops just aren't really a thing.

I got back with a nice little bag filled with goodies, and among them are two half crowns in pretty good condition from 1940 and 1941. Though I had no intention of starting to collect them, I noticed that there's a nice small date run that I can look out for, being from 1937-1946.

My question is though - what is a decent place to source such coins? Unfortunately it'll be very tough for me to find them in a shop here, so I'll most likely have to resort to buying them online. I am not a big fan of Ebay for a variety of reasons and my usual dealers don't sell this type of older coins, so was hoping perhaps someone on the forum here has a recommendation of a place that I could check.


Appreciate any information shared!

I'm sure many members here have a pile of predecimal and would be happy to look through and find coins for your date run. I would offer to look right now except my collection is not to hand. But I certainly have half crowns in good condition from all those years and could work out a good deal for you

Thank you @arphethean, I do appreciate it. I'm a little apprehensive at the moment with ordering things from the UK into Ireland. On two recent occasions, items were held by Irish customs (Even though properly declared by UK sender) and then after about a week it would be sent back to the sender. Though in both occasions the items were indeed returned, it's a bit stressful to go through. However, if you did not have any issues with sending items to Ireland (or EU in general) recently, we can definitely discuss!
