When World War II was raging most people who could afford to put away silver
coins, after all silver had a value while the non silver coins did not. We
have purchased a group of fantastic Swedish Silver 1 Krona coins from 1939. Silver and in Uncirculated condition. Well worth
adding to your collection, after all they were part of World War II.
The autonomous region called the Trans-Dniester Republic issued a most unusual set of
coins in 2014. They are made of a composite material, are semi-transparant and have a textured
surface. This was originally part of the Russian Federation but is now ‘independent’.
They are a plastic type material but with a hardness that produces a stone like sound when
They were issued by the Trans-Dniester Republic Bank and there are 4 denominations. 1
Rouble circular, 3 Roubles square with rounded corners, 5 Roubles pentagon shaped with
rounded corners and 10 Roubles hexagonal with the rounded corners. They have the rounded
corners for ease of use and for ease of machine readability at high speeds.
These were an experiment and who knows if they will continue to issue them. But we thought
that they were very interesting and rather well priced so we obtained 100 sets of them. Supplies are limited.
In 2010 the world celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, one of our most important
victories during World War II. ‘TDC’ or Tristan da Cunha honoured this event by issuing a rather
attractive and important Crown.
You have H.M. the Queen on the obverse and a battle scene on the reverse. There are three airplanes
fighting it out in the sky over Britain, to the left is a full colour British Flag, enamelled. This crown sized
piece has been gold plated, struck in proof condition and then placed in a protective capsule to protect
the finish of the coin.
As our supply is not all that great, it could be the last time we can offer them. Beautiful and priced to
please most collectors, but supplies are limited.
