Billion Silver Tanka of Jaunpur

These billon or base metal silver coins were issued between 1458 and 1479. They were made for the independent kingdom in Northern India of Jaunpur Sutltanate. Today this area is known as Uttar Pradesh. It was ruled by Hussain Shah, the last ruler. During his reign he contributed to Hindustani classical music. His army was the biggest in India and he tried to conquer Delhi three times, but was defeated each time. In 1493 the Delhi sultanate re-conquered Jaunpur and Hussain fled to Bengal. They are listed as EWC 928. These 500 year old coins are called Tankas and are base silver or billon. They have inscriptions on both sides and have an interesting history. I think at just £18.00 they are both interesting and reasonably priced.

Lundy 1977 Puffin & 1/2 Puffin

In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee 1952-1977. She visited Lundy and a souvenir sheet was issued to honour that event. We have been offering that souvenir sheet with the two coin-tokens of a Puffin and a Half Puffin. Based on the first Lundy coin-tokens issued in 1929. At that time the Government took umbrage and the man who made them had to go to court. Many of our collectors want the coin-tokens, but do not want the souvenir sheet. They are struck in copper and are in brilliant Proof condition. Well worth adding to your collection, after all how many Lundy issues have there been?

George VI 1/4 Anna 1940 Unc

Of the four Monarchs who ruled over India in the 20th Century, one of the hardest to find in nice copper or bronze coins is the last one, King George VI. Don’t forget he only came to the throne in 1937 and India became Independent in 1948. During that time there was a World War and people had something else to do than collect coins. We have a nice group of King George VI 1/4 Annas on offer. These are the largest of his bronze coins issued. The coins on offer also have the first head on them and this design was only issued for three years, those from 1940 are on offer. They are not easy to find and the coins on offer are in Uncirculated condition with original lustre. You have the crowned bust of the Monarch on one side and the denomination and date on the other side.

Israel 5 Coin Older Mint Set Uncirculated.

Israel 5 Coin Older Mint Set Uncirculated. This is a most unusual set of coins, the legends are in Hebrew, Arabic and English and there are no dates in English on the coins. They were issued between 1960 and 1980 and all five coins are in Uncirculated condition. The designs are simple yet reflect things that are from that region. You have the 1, 5, 10 and 25 Agorot and the 1 Lira. The 1 Lira has a pomegranate on it, the 25 Agorot a three-string Lyre, the 10 a palm tree, the 5 another type of pomegranate and the 1 an oat sprig. A difficult set of coins to put together, especially in Uncirculated condition, because of inflation Israel has had to change its coinage many times. Five nice Uncirculated coins now at least 37 years old.
