2022 1oz Silver Proof City Views London 2022 1oz Silver Proof – City Views London - The City Views series from the Royal Mint was launched on 28 April 2022. It starts off with London and shows an image of London as it was just before the Great Fire of 1666, based on the 'The Long View of London' by Wenceslaus Hollar.
The 1806 Halfpenny - George III 1806 Halfpenny – George III - There had been a need for a circulation halfpenny since the reign of Charles II but due to the (relatively) high production costs mintage was sporadic. In 1797 the Royal Mint asked Matthew Boulton to produce copper coins at his Soho Mint in Birmingham and the Fourth Issue coinage included the halfpenny (and also twopence, penny and farthing).
1663 Shilling Charles II 1663 Shilling – Charles II (Milled, First Bust) - By 1663 the Royal Mint was ready to end hammered coinage and replace it with the milled coinage created by the machine of Peter (Pierre) Blondeau. This is a silver shilling of King Charles II, minted in 1663 at the Tower Mint in London.
