Captain James Cook Proof Crown In Capsule

Captain James Cook on his three voyages to the South Pacific, mapped all of New Zealand, much of the East Coast of Australia, found the Sandwich Islands and South Georgia. He was also the first European to begin formal contact with the Hawaii Islands. Which was unfortunate, as when he returned there, there was a terrible fight and he was killed in 1779. This handsome silver plated diamond shaped coin from Tristan da Cunha honours this great explorer. You have Captain James Cook on one side with his sailing ship and a ships wheel behind him. The other side has H.M. the Queen. Each large sized diamond shaped crown comes in a unique heavy plastic capsule to protect the proof surface. A great man and a wonderful coin, what more could you ask for?

Australia Birth of Prince George Silver Proof Dollar

On the 22nd of July 2013 Prince George was born to Prince William and Princess Catherine. Australia issued a handsome Silver Proof Crown or Dollar to honour the event. You have the happy couple with the baby on one side and the delighted Grand Mother, Elizabeth II on the other side. Struck in 99.9 pure silver this crownsized coin weighs 31.135 grams or a full troy ounce of silver. The mintage was 10,000 pieces and each comes with a certificate of authenticity and a presentation case from the Perth Mint. As the Royal Mint charges about £80 for a crownsized coin in only Sterling Silver, this must be real value at only £49.50. After all this little infant will one day be our King.

Australia WMF Silver Dollar Set of 3 Special.

Australia WMF Silver Dollar Set of 3 Special. In 2016 for the World Money Fair held in Berlin, Alphabet Coins Germany, the Australian Mint issued a special set of 3 small Dollar Coins in Silver. Each is struck in Frosted Uncirculated, which we call reverse Proof and weighs 11.66 grams. Only 1,000 sets were made for the World Money Fair, one coin with a yellow W, one with a orange M and one with a red F. The set comes in a full colour information card that depicts Australian birds and animals. The Queen is on the obverse of each coin and it is a rather handsome and low mintage set. I don’t even think they were offered in Australia, but only for sale at the Fair in Berlin. I would guess that this set should sell for about £105-£125, but we bought them right and are going to sell them right. Our price is just £49.50 for the set of three in the colour folder, but supplies are very limited. That works out to less than £17 each, trybuying a silver coin today for that price.
