Canada, 1967 Goose Dollar

In 1967 Canada issued its last coins for circulation that were struck in Silver. We gave up silver in 1946, the United States gave it up in 1964 but Canada carried on until 1967. So this is the last Silver Dollar issued for circulation in Canada and perhaps in the world. You have H.M. the Queen on one side and a Canadian Goose on the reverse. All of these dollars are struck in 800 fine silver and in Uncirculated condition. It has been a while since we last had these, but then again you have to remember that they are 52 years old. Beautiful coins and now getting more difficult to get, our supply is limited.

Tristan da Cunha, EL2 VICT TO FDS 7 HEAD PACK

Tristan da Cunha is one of three Atlantic Ocean island nations, ruled by a common British Governor; the other two are St. Helena and Ascension Island. In 1979 the Queen Elizabeth II ship visited the island, it was the inaugural visit and as far as we know their only visit. Tristan issued a special souvenir sheet of five stamps all depicting ships and it comes in a full colour booklet filled with information. But there is something even more important. On the back cover there are the actual signatures of the leaders of the seven families that live on Tristan da Cunha. Oh, didn’t we tell you that only about 275 people live there. This is a unique souvenir sheet of mint stamps, informative booklet and signatures of the seven families, which we find fascinating.

South Africa, 5 Shillings (Crown) 1952. Choice UNC

Silver crown issued in 1952 to mark the 300th Anniversary of the founding of Cape Town.

Nigeria, 1959 1/2d

This bronze Halfpenny from the Federation of Nigeria is a one year type coin, the last coin of Nigeria with the legend Queen Elizabeth the Second. The coins are Brilliant Uncirculated but have mellowed just a bit over the past 59 years. They have a hole in them, so the locals could carry them on a string. These coins are much more difficult to find than the catalogue indicates, in fact we cannot remember the last time we had some. Priced at less than catalogue and a difficult coin to find.
