Queen Elizabeth II Ship Visit To Tristan Da Cunha FDC 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. The other two I have visited, but to visit Tristan on the RMS Ship, you have to be healthy enough to climb a rope ladder to get back on board, if the waves get too rough. Something I could not do. But in 1979 the Queen Elizabeth II ship did visit the island, it was the inaugural visit and as far as I 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 I tell you that only about 275 people live there? This is a unique souvenir sheet of mint stamps, informative booklets, and signatures of the seven families. We are selling it at a very reasonable price too...

Romania, 1996 Olympic Tennis Aluminium Piedfort

At this time of year tennis seems to be on many British people’s minds, what with Wimbledon and all. So I found a group of Rare patterns issued for tennis for the 1996 Olympics held in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States. They only made 125 pieces in each metal and thickness. So these are some of the rarest Olympic coins you will ever see. The type on offer here is the Aluminium Piedfort. Each coin is full crownsized and struck in proof condition. They are struck at one of the oldest mints in the world in Romania, which has been in business for centuries and the quality is outstanding. An outstanding feature is the denomination, 100 Lei, is on the edge, so as not to detract from the design of the coin.

Romania, Gymnast Olympics Copper Piedfort

One of the oldest mints in the world, the Romanian Mint made patterns for crowns they were going to issue for the Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, United States and Nagano, Japan. They were never issued and thus only the patterns exist. The mintage was only 125 pieces in each metal and size (i.e. single thickness or piedfort). So they are some of the RAREST Olympic coins around. We bought quite a lot of the mintage, but over the years we have sold out of many of them.

Romania, Ice Dance Copper

This is a RARE Piedfort Pattern made by the Romania Mint for the Winter Olympics held in Nagano Japan in 1998. It depicts a couple Ice Dancing on one side and the arms of Romania on the other side. This is a Piedfort, that means that it is double the normal thickness. So on a crown that is quite a huge piece. The total mintage is just 125, quite a Rare piece and no doubt very collectable in Japan. It was issued in 1989 and is a very unusual coin, in that the denomination is on the edge, so as not to spoil the design.
