1956 UK Half Crown Coin

Coins-World | AC Coin$🌎

Half Crown

Minted in 1956, this beautifully designed Half Crown coin was in circulation as part of the pound sterling in Britain.

The nicely done coin brings us an image of HM Queen Elizabeth II on her third year at the throne. It does not bear, curiously, the motto: " BRITT OHM" along the REGINA and other titles of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Composed of a cupro-nickel alloy, at a first glance it would siempre made of silver. The reverse depicts the Shield of Arms of the British crown and Her Majesty's monograma and title accordingly to left and right.

In my own words.

Freedom. "Never give up."

"In God we trust."

Coin looks nice. Just does not say what they stand for except the monarchy.

Perhaps, the most relevant issue on this half crown is the fact that the coin does not bear the "BRITT OMN" it used to bear by the previous monarch 's name and title. Thanks for your comments.

I write down the technical specifics in the collection area. While you question my ways the rest of the members do as they see fit with their own stuff. However, I am thankful you care so much about what I do.

Easy points... 2-blogs and 2-collections (same item) per day= 140 points minimum... By the end of the day you average 300+points. Just my observation. ; )
