These sets were made up by the same man who made up the sets of 501 different world coins. This time he made up sets of 300 different world coins, all the coins are at least 42 years old, some much older. There are Uncirculated coins, used coins, some coins that are very old, but all 300 coins are different and should please everyone. He even put a couple of the old large British Pennies in the sack to balance it out. Remember that no coin is newer than 42 years old and in many cases, much older. You get 300 different world coins for only £85.00, that works out to less than 30 pence a coin. It would be impossible to put together a similar collection today at anything near this price. We have less than 100 collections in stock; get them while you can…

Shillings with the Scottish reverse were first made in 1937, to honour Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, George VI’s wife. They were last made in 1966, because we were going decimal. The coins on offer are dated 1963 and in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, remember it is almost the last date that a Scottish Shilling was struck. Nice gifts to anyone with Scottish blood in them. Brilliant Uncirculated and dated 1963.
Well not actually coins that sailed on The Titanic, as those are all at the bottom of the ocean, but rather two coins that were issued in 1912 and could have been used by people who sailed on The Titanic. The two coins are the Sterling Silver Threepence and the bronze Penny of 1912. They were both issued under King George V, who had been King for just 2 years at the time. Both coins are in Very Good condition and you get both Titanic 1912 coins for a very reasonable price.
Trade Tokens were privately issued in the 1600’s. A Farthing in those days would get you a boat ride across the Thames, if the Thames wasn't close by, it could probably buy you a pint of gin. Cheers! These copper Trade Tokens are over 300 years old, they were of low value at the time so they were not all that well-struck most are Very Good or Fine condition. Here we present a Trade Token issued in Dublin, Ireland by Mic Wilson, offered in Fine condition.
During World War II, despite all the fighting, the people still needed coins in their everyday life. Gresham’s Law is that bad money drives good money out of circulation. Basically that when you issue coins in a base metal, those struck in a precious or semi precious metal will disappear as a means of conserving assets. So in the Netherlands, coins that were originally struck in silver and copper, metals that were useful in the War, were replaced by coins struck in Zinc. This is a grey metal but it was all that was available. We have three different denominations 1 Cent, 10 Cents and 25 Cents. The 25 Cents has sailing ship on it. We offer the denomination type set of 3 coins: 2 different 1 cent coins, 3 different 10 cent coins and 2 different 25 Cents. All coins are in Very Fine condition but they are struck in Zinc not one of the most attractive metals.
During World War II Romania issued this silver 500 Lei for just one year 1944. Well in fact the last coins they issued was in 1947. King Mihai I is on the obverse with the crowned coat of arms on the reverse. It is most unusual to have silver coins struck during the War. These large silver coins are in Extremely Fine condition but someone has wiped them so there are faint hairlines showing. They still look nice, but the average collector wouldn’t see the difference. World War II, silver, only issued for one year and in nice condition, what more could you want?
Coins of Spain issued during the Civil War are known as Republic issues 1931-1939. We have come across a wonderful group of Brilliant Uncirculated 25 Centimos of 1938. These Spanish coins were only struck for one year and issued with a hole in the centre to distinguish it from the higher denomination. Chain links on one side and the value on the other side. The current catalogue value is $25.00 in mint state 63 condition and these coins are that grade or higher. They are real Brilliant Uncirculated coins and over 80 years old.
Why are these two coins scarce? Because they no longer make small coins for circulation, they use banknotes. These two coins were issued in 1971 and the English version of their name is Saint Thomas & Prince Islands. Both the 10 Centavos and the 20 Centavos are one year only type coins. And now 48 years old. They are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and coins that you just don’t see any more. Scarce coins from a country that no longer makes small coins. If you don’t have them then this is your chance to get two scarce coins.
The Portuguese explorer Tristão da Cunha was born in 1460 and died in 1540. At one time he was King Manuel I’s ambassador to the Vatican under Pope Leo X. But he is best known for his antics in the Middle East and India. When in his wanderings he found a group of islands in the South Atlantic, although the weather was too rough to get off his ship, he claimed them and named one after himself. Now that island Tristan da Cunha has issued a crown to honour their discoverer. It is diamond shaped and has H.M. Queen Elizabeth II on one side and Tristão on the other side with sailing ship and wheel. This is heavily silver plated and struck in Proof condition. It also comes in a diamond shaped protective capsule. If you name an island after yourself, why not have a coin made for you?
This handsome crownsized piece was made to honour the Detroit, Michigan Police Department in the United States. You have the Detroit Police Department logo on one side in green, red, white and blue on a silver coloured background on one side. The other side has Saint Michael the patron saint of law enforcement standing proud. Crownsized, Proof condition and in a protective capsule. Detroit is known as the motor city so this piece has a car on it. I respect the Police, in most countries, and feel that this is rather important in many ways.
This medal says it all, ‘Grateful Nation – Never Forget – POW –MIA’ which stands for Prisoner of War (POW) and Missing in Action (MIA). The bold head of a Bald Eagle in white, gold and yellow is set against a red, white and blue American Flag. The other side also has the head of an eagle and five symbols for the five branches of the American armed services. This piece is outstanding in that the colours are bright and vibrant and really knock you out. The sentiment is even more important, these are the service people who have helped defend us and we cannot forget them. One of the nicest pieces we have offered, but supplies are limited.
