Congo, 10 Francs, Warriors of The World English Archer

The Democratic Republic of the Congo issued a series of Proof Crowns or 10 Francs in 2010 to honour real and fantasy Warriors of the World. Here we offer the English Archer, famous for showing two fingers to the French. Each silver plated crown is struck in gleaming Proof condition and we think we bought most of the mintage.

Choice Antoninianus of Probus

Probus became emperor in AD 276 after overthrowing the emperor Florianus. A native of the city of Sirmium in what is now Serbia, he rose to prominence and proved himself a capable administrator and commander and is recognised as an emperor who contributed to the revival of the Roman Empire at a time of severe turmoil and crisis. In AD 277/8 his armies defeated the Goths, Alamanni, Longiones, Franks, and Burgundians. He realised that the best way to keep his soldiers out of trouble was to keep them busy so, with the frontiers of the empire stabilised, he set his men to the task of rebuilding the shattered infrastructure of key provinces that had crumbled under previous emperors by building roads, bridges and fortifications, draining marshes, digging canals and, interestingly, planting extensive vineyards. New plantations sprang up across Europe and there is mention in some records of Probus authorising the planting of vineyards in Britain too so we may still be enjoying the fruits of his labours today! These Antoninianus, or ‘Ants’ as we call them, are as good as they come, virtually as struck and with original lustre. There are a variety of reverse types most with standing figures but a limited number available in this grade.

Elizabeth II, (Slabbed) Churchill £5 Piedfort, 2015

In 2015 the Royal Mint issued a Silver Proof £5 to honour Sir Winston Churchill. For VIP collectors they even issued a piedfort or double the normal thickness of this crownsized coin in Proof Sterling Silver. We believe that when it was issued they sold it for £155.00. Someone in the United States bought a quantity and had them ‘slabbed’; that is graded and put into plastic holders to protect them. Well they came out Gem Proof grading 70 out a possible 70 points.

Elizabeth II, £10 (Slabbed) 1st Britannia, 2013

In 2013 the Royal Mint issued its first ever £10 Silver Britannia, a huge 5 ounce coin. Britannia is shown wearing a Corinthian Helmet holding an owl on her knee, it is the symbol of intelligence. She is sitting on a chair holding a trident, but there is one little problem. She is dressed or partially dressed in an old fashioned way. That means that one of her breasts has been left exposed. The Ian Rank-Broadley bust of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse. The first release of this large silver coin was sold to a marketing company in the United States, which had them slabbed. This preserves the coin from getting fingerprints, authenticates the coin and grades it. They graded the coins (£10 face value) as being Proof 69 out of 70 and better yet they are Ultra Cameo, which is about as good as you can get. The quality us outstanding. In the slab it is a large and handsome presentation piece, I can see them displayed in the slab on your mantle piece. Anyone who sees it will be impressed, how could they not? A huge beautiful Britannia in silver in an impressive display case and the price is right. Originally sold by the Royal Mint at £420.00. Coincraft’s price is just £295.00 which saves you £125.00!
