Tristan da Cunha, 70th Anniversary Battle of Britain Crown

In 2010 the world celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, one of our most important victories during World War II. ‘TDC’ or Tristan da Cunha honoured this event by issuing a rather attractive and important Crown. You have H.M. the Queen on the obverse and a battle scene on the reverse. There are three airplanes fighting it out in the sky over Britain, to the left is a full colour British Flag, enamelled. This crown sized piece has been gold plated, struck in proof condition and then placed in a protective capsule to protect the finish of the coin. As our supply is not all that great, it could be the last time we can offer them. Beautiful and priced to please most collectors, but supplies are limited.

St. Thomas & Prince Scarce Crown

In 1985St. Thomas & Prince issued a cupro-nickel crown or 100 Dobras to honour their 10th anniversary of Independence. It is a small and fascinating island, however, getting coins or banknotes from there is almost impossible. Two banknote dealers who went there were put in jail accused of money laundering. So this Crown is even more interesting and important. I think it is the first crown we have had from St. Thomas & Prince. You have an outline picture of the island on one side and the coat of arms on the reverse with two birds holding it up. A most unusual and difficult crown to find, in fact, most of this country's coins are difficult to obtain...
