A superb high grade silver Halfcrown of King George the Second dated 1745. This coin features the older mature bust of the king wearing armour, with a lions face on the shoulder epaulette. The word ‘LIMA’ below represents that the silver used to make this coin was captured from the Spanish by Admiral Anson during his world voyage in 1740-44. The coin also has the spelling of Georgivs with a ‘U’ instead of the usual ‘V’. The reverse typically shows the crowned cruciform shields of arms representing Great Britain, France and Ireland, with plain angles in-between, the edge has inscribed the regnal year of 'Decimo Nono'.
