1954 Irish Half Crown 2/6 - Exceptional Condition

This is for a 1954 Irish Halfcrown (also known as a HALF DOLLAR, because the value was approximately equal to a US half dollar at the time), which features a Horse (a Hunter) and leat córóin, on the reverse and a Harp, éire and date on the obverse. Talk to any Irish child of the sixties and they will all have their favourite halfcrown story. This usually involves a favourite uncle and and the first time they ever got a present of a halfcrown! "First Communion Money" also featured halfcrowns - if you were lucky! They are substantial coins - larger than an American half dollar. This was "real money" as we called it!

The halfcrowns were demonetised on 31st December 1969 and then withdrawn from circulation in 1970 prior to decimalisation.

Coins and notes are normally shipped within 24 hours of receipt of payment by Priority Airmail external to Ireland and regular post in Ireland, and usually arrive in the US/Canada a 5 to 7 days later, in Ireland in 1 day, the UK in 2 days, and to the rest of Europe in 3 to 5 days.

Satisfaction is guaranteed with my no quibble money back 14 day return policy! There is no reserve, a low postage charge, and a reasonable price! Any questions? Please ask Thanks!

Don't miss out on this very unique opportunity.

A great addition to any collection.

PayPal payment only for buyers external to the Republic of Ireland. However, I will accept bank drafts or postal orders only from residents of the Republic of Ireland.
