A rare chance to own the complete set of coins from one of the most notable dates in history
On the fateful day of April 10, 1912, the largest and largest and most luxurious ocean liner ever built left Southampton for New York - no one suspected as she set off from Southampton to New York the tragedy that would come to pass.
Accompanied by beautiful sunny days and light breezes Titanic was shown off in her entire splendour in her first three days at sea. However, four days into her voyage on a calm but moonless night at 11:40 p.m. April 14, 1912, she struck a massive iceberg, ripping through her hull. Just 37 seconds was the time it took between lookout Frederick Fleet’s cry to the bridge and the mighty Titanic’s fatal collision. In less than three short hours, the Titanic, deemed unsinkable, had slipped into the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic and disappeared beneath the silent waves forever.

The tales of tragedy, bravery, and survival have fascinated the world from the time of the Titanic’s sinking to today. Owning the coins of the era, is an affordable way to have an insight into the lives of the passengers of the ill-fated passenger liner.
It was coins of this type that would have been used to buy the tickets, to pay the crew, and even for the passengers to send a wireless telegram (12 shillings and sixpence for the first 10 words, and 9 pence per word thereafter). These are quite literally the coins which would have been used by the passengers.
This set includes the five silver coins (half crown, florin, shilling, sixpence, and threepence) and the three bronze coins (penny, half penny, and farthing). In addition, the rare Heaton "H" Penny is also included in this set. This was one of Britain’s most illustrious circulating coins that was not struck at the Royal Mint.
