1746 George II Silver Halfcrown Lima

1745 George II Silver Halfcrown Lima Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A collectable silver Halfcrown of King George the Second, dated 1746. The obverse features the old mature bust of the king, wearing armour with the face of a lion on the shoulder epaulette. The word ‘LIMA’ appears below, indicating that this coin was struck from silver, captured from Spanish treasure ships. A galleon captured in 1744 netted £500,000 worth of silver which was subsequently transported to the Tower. The silver supposedly originated in Peru, hence the ‘LIMA’ inscription. The reverse of this coin shows crowned shields of royal arms, arranged in a cruciform pattern with a garter star at the centre. The shields represent Great Britain, France, Ireland and the House of Hanover. The angles are plain. A quality grade coin with an interesting story to add to any numismatic collection.
