1901 Queen Victoria Silver Halfcrown

1901 Queen Victoria Silver Halfcrown Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A collectable grade silver Halfcrown of Queen Victoria dated 1901. The obverse features the third older style ‘Old Head’. This veiled and crowned portrait of the Queen, facing left, is the work of the engraver Sir Thomas Brock. It was adopted in 1893 for British gold and silver coinage. The reverse shows a spade-shaped shield of royal arms, representing England, Scotland and Ireland, surmounted by a crown. This is enclosed within a beaded ring which is filled with ribbons and roses. A tiny Saint George, mounted on a horse which rears over a dragon appears below. The denomination appears in the legend. This is also the work of Brock. Victoria died on 22 January 1901 after more than 63 years on the throne. Though this coin bears a 1901 date, it was likely struck in the previous year. Spink 3938.
