The Australian mint issued just 1,000 pieces each of these three small silver dollars for the World Money Fair in Berlin in 2016. Each coin has an animal on them and a letter in colour. H. M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of each coin. We have offered these three as a set in the card holder of issue, but now all we have is the coins on their own. You have ‘W’ with a wombat, ‘F’ with a fruit bat and ‘M’ with a bid. Each piece comes in the capsule, they are Brilliant Uncirculated condition, weigh 11.66 grams of 999 fine silver. Here we presnt the 'F' with a fruit bat.

Since Australia went over to the Decimal system 40 years ago, their pre-decimal series is now complete and finished. 91 years ago, in 1927, the first florin was issued. This commemorative was for the new Parliament Building. Struck in Sterling silver we are offering this florin in Very Fine condition.
Australia WMF Silver Dollar Set of 3 Special. In 2016 for the World Money Fair held in Berlin, Alphabet Coins Germany, the Australian Mint issued a special set of 3 small Dollar Coins in Silver. Each is struck in Frosted Uncirculated, which we call reverse Proof and weighs 11.66 grams. Only 1,000 sets were made for the World Money Fair, one coin with a yellow W, one with an orange M and one with a red F. The set comes in a full-colour information card that depicts Australian birds and animals. The Queen is on the obverse of each coin and it is a rather handsome and low mintage set. I don’t even think they were offered in Australia, but only for sale at the Fair in Berlin. I would guess that this set should sell for about £105-£125, but we bought them right and are going to sell them right. Our price is just £49.50 for the set of three in the colour folder, but supplies are very limited. That works out to less than £17 each, try buying a silver coin today for that price.
Billion is a mixture of base metal and silver, usually of a low silver content. These 1/8th Tical or 1 Fuang coins were issued about 1847. They are small and uniface, that means they have a design on one side only. The design is Hamza Bird. They look nice and silvery but they are only part silver. 170 years old and in Extremely Fine condition. An unusual coin from a difficult country, one that you don’t often see. They catalogue $27.50/£22.00 in Extremely Fine but our price is much more reasonable.
These beautiful Canadian Maple Leafs have just come in, these have the Maple Leaf privy mark on them. They have redesigned them with raised obverse and reverse to make the design stand out even more. They are Choice Brilliant Uncirculated and have a most unusual portrait of the Queen on the obverse. They look like the Australian reverse proofs and are just beautiful. We think you will love them…
In 1949 Newfoundland officially became part of the Canadian confederacy. Until the reign of King George VI they still issued their own coinage, but the largest coin the 50 Cents was last issued under King George V. We believe that this is the first time that we have had the King George V 50 Cents silver to offer you. A lucky buy has allowed us to offer them to you. Remember this is a country that no longer issues its own coinage. At the time this 50 Cents was the largest denomination coin issued by Newfoundland. The coins on offer are in Very Good condition and dates will be of our choice.
Before Nova Scotia became part of the Canadian Confederation, she issued some coins in her own name. The coin on offer is the large copper One Cent coin of Queen Victoria. There were never many coins issued by Nova Scotia. So if you collect a coin of a country then this is the coin you will need for your collection. You have the bust of Queen Victoria on one side and the name and the value on the other side. These One Cent coins were only issued between 1861 and 1864. They are in Very Good –Fine condition and we are sure you will be pleased with them. But supplies are limited.
These polymer £5 notes were issued by the Clydesdale Bank in 2016 (P235b) The previous year the Forth Railway Bridge which is illustrated on the back was inscribed as a World Heritage Site. The front has a portrait of Sir William Arrol, the engineer responsible for the construction of the bridge which was finished in 1890. The first notes the bank issued in 2016 had the prefix W/HS (World Heritage Site).
Whenever we have a Commonwealth coin on our Rare Coin listing there are always multiple orders for it. After it all it was a very interesting period of our history. So when we were offered these beautiful replica Commonwealth Halfcrown dated ‘1652’ we jumped at the chance. The reverse has two sets of shields conjoined that look like a pair of old fashioned trousers. The obverse has the Commonwealth shield in a wreath. They are retro dated 1652 and are struck in Proof condition and come in a capsule. You can tell it was made to look like the Shilling because there is ‘II*VI’ above the shields. That stood for Two Shillings and Sixpence. Beautiful pieces and make a good space holder until you are able to get the real thing. We are sure you will love them.
Only 450 were made of this Victoria Cyprus in Proof condition. You have the Old Head of Queen Victoria on one side and the crowned arms of Cyprus on the other side with the retro date of 1901. These are Double Florin sized and were minted in goldine, but only 450..

The envelope is blue with a small red crown. All three pieces are yours to keep, yours to give away or even to try and resell them. They are original and authentic and all 3 pieces of the Duchess of Windsor’s stationary can be yours fro a very reasonable price!
This is one of the most fantastic Treasure Trove Hoards we have ever bought. On the 10th of May 1877 at Montrave, Fifeshire, Scotland a hoard of King Edward I Silver Pennies were found. The coins are about 700 years old and the treasure was found 141 years ago! They were declared and sent to the British Museum for cataloguing. This Treasure hoard was found on the land belonging to Mr. Allan Gilmour of Lundin and Montrave. Now for the first time in 141 years, collectors have the chance to own a specimen from this incredible hoard. We are offering these Treasure Coins with a certificate at the same price I would charge for a normal Edward I Penny. But we do retain the right to raise the prices, as supplies run short. British Treasure over 700 years old and untouched for 141 years. Supplies are limited.
The Britannia silver series is usually only available in Proof condition, except for the one ounce silver. But in 2006 the Royal Mint issued the 1/10th Silver Britannia in Uncirculated condition. As far as I know, this is the only year that they issued this coin in Uncirculated condition. So it is a Very Important type coin. I have selected this coin as my ‘Special Offer of the Issue’. First because it was only issued for one year and secondly and most importantly because I can sell it for such a cheap price. Each coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and struck in Sterling Silver, they only ever issued this coin in Uncirculated for one year. So it is a Very Important type coin. You can have this 1/10th Britannia only issued in 2006 for just £7.95. At this prices it really is the Special Offer of the Issue!
In 1953 Queen Elizabeth II had her Coronation, while she had been Queen for almost a year, this made it Official. It is Royal Mint policy only to issue coins for a new Monarch only after their Coronation. So, although Elizabeth became our Queen in 1952, no coins were issued until after her Coronation in 1953. The 1953 coins are one year only coins, as the next year they changed the legend slightly. In the Coronation Proof Set you have the Crown, Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, brass Threepence, Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing. The Proof Set comes in a maroon case, but because of the padding used in the cases, the insides are sometimes a bit spotty. The bronze coins may have toned or mellowed but the coins are all in Proof condition, as issued.
In 1982 they issued the first 20 pence coin. But in Victorian times they issued a Double Florin in Sterling Silver which was almost crown sized, but had the same exact face value as our current 20p. I have found some stamped covers celebrating the first day of the New 20 Pence coin. They have the Royal Mint special cancellation and are numbered out of a total printing of only 800 covers. I decided to make it even more interesting and have combined the cover with a Brilliant Uncirculated Millennium 20 Pence coin. But please remember we have very few covers and they were posted 37 years ago!
This is the complete date set of Queen Elizabeth II Florins. You get every date from 1953 to 1967 the last Florin ever issued for circulation. That includes the one year type 1953, the scarce and rare dates 1954, 1958 and 1959. All coins are in selected circulated condition and remember the newest coin is now over 50 years old. If previous demand is anything to go by, this set of Florins will fly out. After all the Florin is the most difficult denomination to get.
The 1964 Halfcrown has always been one of the most difficult to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Even at the time of issue, it was not an easy coin to find in top grade. If you are missing this coin or you know someone born or married in 1964 then this coin would make a great gift. Supplies are limited, don’t miss out.
In the United States collecting rolls of coins has always been an important part of the hobby. We don’t know if people, collect, hoard or buy to give away as gifts. In any case collecting coins by the roll is very important. So we sent to one of our suppliers in America and bought a number of their square plastic tubes for coins. The square ones will not roll all over the place. When we describe a roll it refers to the packaging and not the number in the roll. This particular role has 18 Florins. All coins are Queen Elizabeth II, the last year of issue of our Pre-Decimal coins. Start a new hobby, collect Brilliant Uncirculated rolls of British coins!
The 2016 Silver Britannia’s are certainly something Special. Firstly the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II has changed and she is now more mature. Also the quality of the silver being used is also different. While you still get one ounce of pure silver, they are now struck in four nines silver i.e. 999.9 and not 925 or Sterling Silver. This was done to placate the buyers in the Far East who want only pure silver coins with a pebble-dash surface. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Add one or more to your collection for a great price! The limit is 3 coins per collector at this price.
