Admiral Gardner 20 Cash

These are fantastic Treasure coins. They were struck in Birmingham for the East India Company and sent to India by ship. Unfortunately the ship they were on, The Admiral Gardner, was sunk on the Goodwin Sands. About 25 years ago it was discovered and salvaged. The coins are copper and dated 1808. Over the last 200 years many of them corroded especially the 20 (XX) Cash pieces, the smaller 10 (X) Cash coins tend to have weathered the sands better. The 20 Cash seem to be alright on one side and very worn on the other side. British / India Treasure coins at a most reasonable price and with a history that is both tragic and fascinating.

George VI, Festival of Britain Crown and Stamps, 1951

George VI 1951, Festival of Britain Crown and Stamps. In 1951 this country was going off the rationing that had been in force since World War II. The country rejoiced and children could again have sweets and the family meat, if they could afford it. The Government held a festival on the South Bank called the Festival of Britain. To honour the King, they issued only the second Crown from his reign. Unlike the Coronation issue which was in silver, this Festival of Britain Crown was struck in cupro-nickel. They are Uncirculated and came in a cardboard box which didn’t survive as well as the coin it was protecting. They also issued two stamps for the Festival. I am offering you the 1951 Festival of Britain Crown in the original box of issue plus both mint unused stamps issued for the Festival. Today they are 66 years old and well worth having…
