One of our dealers managed to get us two different 25 Centavo coins issued in Spain during
their Civil War. One is dated 1927 and has a crown and a hammer on it. The second
is dated 1934 and has Espana holding an olive branch.
Both coins were struck with a hole in the middle and are in Very Fine condition. The
Spanish Civil War, as are all civil wars, had brother fighting brother. It was the Communists
fighting the Capitalists and in this case the Capitalists came out on top. This pair of coins is
getting increasingly difficult to find. We think they are fantastic but that they do represent a
bloody and turbulent time in Spain’s history.
I thought that they had started the new Silver Krugerrand in 2018, but I have been told off. They made
them in 2017, but this issue sold out and is now very difficult to find. But I finally found a small
group of the 2017 South Africa Silver Krugerrand in Choice Uncirculated condition in Germany.
I bought all they had, they are beautiful and the start of a whole new series, we also have 2018 and
2019 issues for sale, but the 2017 issue is the one that everyone wants. Get them while you can. Note
the 50th Anniversary of the Kruger on the coin.
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!
We have just had in our supply of the NEW 2019 South Africa Silver
Krugerrand. It now appears that they are going to make them every year,
which is great for collectors. Another series to collect, beautiful quality and
reasonable prices, what more can you ask for?
Each piece contains one ounce of pure Silver and is in Choice Brilliant
Uncirculated condition. If you bought last year’s issue, then you will want to
add this one to your collection too. Best to get in at the beginning, when prices
are cheapest. The longer a series goes on, the more difficult the earlier issues
are to get.
This Prooflike Uncirculated Crown from St. Helena and Ascension Island was issued
in 1994. It celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Allies landing on Normandy Beach
in World War II.
On one side you have the beach landing and on the other H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. The
face value is 50 Pence and it is now 25 years old. A beautiful and inexpensive crown to
honour World War II.
This handsome Silver Proof crown or 100 Lei was issued by Romania for the
Winter Olympics held in Nagano Japan in 1998. It was the 18th Winter Olympics.
The crown depicts a man and a woman ice dancing, with date and number of the
Olympiad on one side. The other side has the Olympic flame and the arms of
Each Sterling Silver Proof 100 Lei comes in a protective capsule and is gleaming
Proof condition. We believe it to be a relatively low mintage coin, as the Winter
Olympics do not have as much interest as the Summer Olympics.
As some mints are charging up to £88 for a silver proof crown, our price for this coin is most reasonable.
