History Coins


From single coins, to multi-sets with beginner's book, to the ultimate present of gold, we have a gift for that special person at History Coins.

6oth Birthday This Year?

Do you have a 60th birthday this year or need a gift for someone who has? Give yourself or them a piece of history to commemorate your/their birth date by giving a coin from 1959. Choose from either a shiny halfpenny or a three pence (thrupenny bit) from the pre-decimal period in British numismatic history. For only £6 have your coin delivered for free to anywhere in the UK (international purchases will need to pay an additional charge for postage). This is a rarer date so there are few of them around, so stocks are limited. 

Please send me 1 1959 halfpenny at £6 (P&P FREE to UK)

Please send me 1 1959 threepence (3d) at £6 (P&P FREE to UK)

First Day Cover, Six Wives of Henry VIII with Medallion & Postmark from Hever Castle

Full set of stamps including Henry, with portrait of Anne Boleyn. Although it is unlikely that Henry wrote 'Greensleeves' for Anne, it has become a traditional Christmas tune, so I thought I would add this to the offerings.

The medallion is a copy of the commemorative issue marking Henry becoming the head of the Church of England. Comes with information sheet and certificate of authenticity.
A lovely piece of Post Office history.
£12 SOLD

Real Silver Sixpences for your Christmas Pudding or Bride's Shoe
