George V, Sixpence circulated, 1926

In 1926 a Princess, now Queen Elizabeth II was born. Her grandfather King George V was on the throne at the time. The Sixpence was still being struck in silver. John Logie Baird demonstrated TV and the country had a terrible General Strike. For some reason the coins of 1926 are not easy to get. So we were very happy when we were offered a small group of the 1926 Silver Sixpence, a most useful and collected denomination. The coins are used, but in selected circulated condition. Honour our great Monarch, add a silver sixpence of her birth year to your collection. After all Queen Elizabeth II is the longest serving Monarch that this great nation has ever had.

Russia_Scarce_1989_Rouble_Choice_Obv

Russia (USSR), 1989 Rouble

This coin was issued under the USSR, it is the largest denomination that was actually used every day as money. It is dated 1989 and it is dated both on the reverse and on the edge of the coin. You have the hammer and sickle on one side and the denomination on the other side. The current catalogue price is $30.00 in mint state 60 and there is no price for this coin in mint state 63, which they are. It is a scarce coin, in much better condition than they usually come. We bought them right, so we are going to sell them right. Uncirculated it catalogues at £22.70. A tough coin to get, especially so choice.

Monaco, 1994 Ecu Cupro-Nickel

As many of you who collect Euros know, anything from Monaco is rare and expensive. The same holds true for the Pattern Ecu pieces of 1994. At that time everyone thought the new coinage was going to be called Ecus and not Euros. These were privately issued and highly collected. We have bought out the last of the group that was struck in 1994 and our prices are far more reasonable. These pieces can never be struck again. They have the famous Montgolfier’s balloon taking off over a country house with air balloons and sailing ships over a map of Europe

Picture of Canada, George V Large & Small Cents

Canada, George V Large & Small Cents

Governments worldwide are issuing more and more paper money; they call it QE or Quantitative Easing. We call it making our money worth less and less and if you really need an example, how about Germany in the early 1920s? At that time money became of so little value that someone saw a basket of banknotes, they left the notes and stole the basket! In Canada, during the reign of King George V, we have an excellent example of what inflation can do. We have the Canadian Large Cent of King George V, issued 1911-1920. Then in 1920 they reduced the size greatly and kept this smaller size until 1936. We offer the Large and Small-sized 'Penny' or One Cent coins of King George V, so you can show your friends what inflation can do to coins. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen here… Large size cent issued from 1911-1920 and the small cent issued from 1920-1936
