Florins Half Crowns Galore

Glorious Half Crowns and Florins

If you like coins as i do and  you remember LSD Coins pre decimal days then these were real treasures. Imagine sitting in an Auction Room when this little lot went down under the hammer for £110 to who but yours truly i was as pleased as punch, because the condition of each coin was superb right back to the 1887 half crown the 1930 wasn't bad either but all were good.

Keeping them for a couple of years turned out to be a good thing because when i resold the lot recently they fetched £310 mainly due to the rising Commodity prices in part due to Silver for which these coins contain a good percentage.

So to have owned a wonderful piece of past history in this form and then to have held cash in such a secure investment was also so good and a great learning exercise in times of insecurity low interest rates and uncertainty.
