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.
This beautiful Crown was issued in 2011 for Queen Elizabeth II’s 85th birthday. You have
the conjoined busts of H. M. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip on the reverse and H.
M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
It is full crownsized and has been gold plated before striking to make it even more beautiful.
It says it all really with the inscription ‘Royal Birthday Commemoration’ ‘2011’ and ‘One
Crown’. It is in Proof condition and comes in a protective capsule to protect the coin.
We have just 10 sets of Pope John Paul II Somalia Crowns. There are three Prooflike pieces in each set and with the increase in the metal prices; the planchets alone are worth a bunch. As we need the space, and we do not want to count them again, we will be offering them at a discounted price.
Only a few lucky collectors will get to bag this bargain, so make sure you are one of them!
In 1986 on the 23rd of July Prince Andrew married Miss Sarah Ferguson, a marriage that was not to
last, unfortunately. Two South Atlantic islands, St. Helena and Ascension Island, combined to honour
this event and by combining they made a rather interesting piece.
You have the couple on one side with Prince Andrew in military uniform, a few years earlier he served
as a helicopter pilot in the Falkland Islands. The other side has Prince Andrew’s Mother, better known as
H.M. Queen Elizabeth II.
These are cupronickel crownsized 50 Pence pieces and are in Uncirculated condition. They are now
33 years old and being sold for about the same price that they sold for 30 years ago! Your gain!
From Thailand we offer a commemorative coin which is 23 years old. The 20 Baht of 1995
