India, East India Co. Treasure X Cash

These 10 and 20 cash coins were struck for the East India Company in Birmingham in 1808. Unfortunately the coins never made it to India; the ship carrying them sunk on the Goodwin Sands and lay undiscovered for almost 200 years. The coins struck were the 10 and the 20 Cash coins. Both denominations are copper and have the arms of the East India Company supported by two lions on one side. The other side has the denomination XX (20) Cash or X (10) Cash and the inscription is in the Arabic. Here we present the X coins, which are in Very Fine, but have seen some edge damage due to their being buried for almost 200 years. Own a piece of British / Indian Treasure coin for far less than you might expect to pay. These are a wonderful conversation piece as well as true treasure coins. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity...

Each proof crownsized medal comes in a clear presentation capsule, so you can see it without having to handle it.

Charles & Diana Formal Engagement Medal

We issued this medal was issued in 1981, and it was one of only two engagement medals that we issued at the time. The other one was one that we issued with informal portraits on it. The formal one has Prince Charles in a military uniform and Diana in cocktail dress. It is struck in Proof like cupro-nickel and the mintage was rather small. We just found 120 pieces in one of the vault rooms, having been put away for the past 38 years. I am going to offer them at what I think the original price was in 1981, but please remember that there are only 120 pieces available.
