This Liberty Head Nickel was an American five cent coin, issued for circulation from 1883 until 1912. It replaced the copper nickel five cent coin with the Shield struck in the early 1880’s. Designed by Charles Barber it went into production in 1883. On the obverse is the classic head of Liberty, the reverse has a large roman numeral ‘V’ inside a wreath indicating the denomination of the coin and the word ‘cents’ below. In 1912 it was replaced by the Buffalo nickel.

US Morgan $ 'S' Mint Mark MS64

The United States Silver Dollar or Cartwheel as it is known, was the currency that they used in the old West. All those cowboy films you grew up with, the men went to the bar and spent Silver Dollars. The Morgan Silver Dollar was made between 1878 and 1904, and then they struck a somewhat similar coin in 1921. For our purposes the dates that count are 1878-1904. George T. Morgan who designed this Silver Dollar, was actually British, so it makes them a little closer to home. These are nice coins and ones that most collectors would be only too proud to own. The hoard that we bought, all grade MS64 (Mint State 64 out of 70) which are much nicer coins than we previously offered. The coins available all have the ‘S’ mint mark of San Francisco, California. Each coin is slabbed, that is sealed to protect it and graded so you know what you are getting. We do not like slabs, but as they usually cost £10-£20 to have done. We do not think it makes it worth any more to break open the slab. It also authenticates the coin and we don’t charge you any extra!

Himyarite Silver Coin

The Himyarite Kingdom was part of ancient Yemen, whose capital was Zatar. They were a trading nation between East Africa and the Roman or Mediterranean world. They were known for their trade in Frankincense and Myrrh and their geographical position made them very important for trade. This choice silver coin is a Scyphate Quinarius from the 1st or 2nd Century AD, so it is about 1800-1900 years old and was struck in Raidan. There is a portrait of a man on one side and a small portrait of a man on the other side. These coins are basically in as struck Mint condition, cup shaped. We did find a similar coin on an American dealers list about two years ago. It was priced at $195.00 (£150) and had sold quite quickly. Our coins are as nice or better, but our price is far more attractive.

USA Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar Various Dates Silver Fine

In 1916 the United States Mint changed over from the Barber Quarter to the Liberty Standing Quarter. Unfortunately the designer used a more European model of Liberty with one of her breasts exposed. It caused a scandal and uproar. After all, you couldn’t have bare breasts being shown on your coins. After all, no one had ever seen a bare breast, unless they were feeding their child or you had seen classical sculpture or painting or you had … So in 1917 this design was changed and the offending breast was covered up. The Standing Liberty Quarter was issued until 1930. All of our coins are of the non offending kind, mainly because they are better value. All coins are in Fine condition and it is one of America’s most beautiful silver coins. Dates will be of our choice, but all coins are nice examples in Fine condition and struck in .900 fine Silver.
