India, Ancient India Elephant

We were offered a group of ancient Indian copper coins recently; they were issued between 59- 131 AD. They have an elephant on one side and some circles on the other side. They were very crudely struck; after all they were a very low denomination at the time. They are from Satavahanas, Pulomavi in India. We went through 2,000 coins in the hoard and picked out the best ones available. We went for the best elephants that we could find, in fact we bought only 10% of the hoard, and these were the only ones that we thought were of sufficient quality for our customers. A very old coin but it won’t cost you the earth. As the elephant is now endangered, we think this ancient coin is very appropriate.

Sweden, 1984 Mint Set

This set was made up by the Swedish Mint in 1984; it contains all six coins issued for circulation. But the coins are in Prooflike Uncirculated and far better than the normal coins would look like. The set comes in a blue and gold hard plastic case, showing both sides of the coins. The set contains the 5, 10, 25 & 50 Ore as well as the 1 & 5 Kronor coins all in Prooflike Uncirculated condition. The set is now 35 years old and I would guess not all that easy to find. The set is sealed by the Swedish Royal Mint.

United States of America, Buffalo Nickel, 1913 - 1938. In circulated condition.

US Buffalo Nickel, 1913. In circulated condition. First struck in 1913 and now 104 years old, this popular design was part of an attempt to make the US coinage more attractive. This five Cent coin features the head of a Native Indian on one side and an American Bison on the reverse. They quickly proved popular with the American public and despite concerns about how quickly the coins became worn in circulation, continued to be minted until 1938 when they were replaced by the Jefferson Nickel. All coins have a full date. Most coins are dated in the 1930’s. Dates of our choice.
