Here’s the perfect addition to your world coin or World War II collection – an 11-piece coin, note and stamp set honoring Great Britain’s King George VI. George VI ascended the throne in 1936 after his brother, Edward VIII’s, abdication – at a time when the monarchy’s popularity needed a boost. George’s steadfast refusal to leave Buckingham Palace during the London Blitz of WWII, coupled with the royal family’s courage and self-sacrifice, brought a needed lift to their image. With this set, you’ll own:
- 9 different coins of Great Britain, all issued over 60 years ago and depicting King George VI on the obverse
- a 15 centimes stamp issued by Morocco to honor his coronation
- a £1 Military Note from 1948
This set comes displayed in a handsome and informative presentation folder. Order today, and own a fascinating set honoring the king – and father of Queen Elizabeth II – who rallied England during WWII.
