It is stressed that the following prices are a guide to retail prices only, and are in UK pounds. They represent what you might have to pay a dealer, rather than what you might be able to sell them for.

I can take no personal responsibility for their accuracy, although every effort has been made to ensure that they have been copied correctly.

The information has generally been taken from the UK monthly magazine Coin News, and is reproduced by the kind permission of

Condition Grades

The headings F, VF, EF and Unc refer to the condition grades of the coins. A guide to evaluating grades is found on my UK Coin Values Index page.

Proof coins relatively often found are listed, but the absence of a mention does not mean that a proof of that year does not exist.


Half Groat or Silver Twopence

No values for twopence or half groat coins prior to those of Charles II are available

The lack of a value for a grade means either that the coin is rarely found in that grade or that its value is less than 1.

If you have a silver twopence coin with a date not listed, you may find it listed as part of a Maundy Set.
