I keep up with the 20th C. Halfcrowns, was looking at the census reports and this coin stood out:


I have been trying to find photos of the 1959 proof halfcrown and note that the
1955 proof showed up as part of a set several years ago but can't find track of that one - does anybody else like these coins?

Well, just Love coins, period.

    That looks very underwhelming, both as a DCAM and as a 68

    I believe that was PCGS of Europe so sometimes their pics are not flattering and I agree the image is perhaps less than inspiring. I have seen very few "off year" QE II halfcrowns and recall this coin in hand being superb. Actually looking for some assisting information.
    BTW, will put the rarity of these up against virtually any US coin.

    Great looking coin- I suspect it will be the only one I will ever see...

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.
