South Africa, Edward VIII Patina

This handsome Patina piece shows Edward VIII with the crowned arms of South Africa and the retro date of 1937 on the other side. This is a magnificent bronze piece in Proof condition. The mintage for this was only 550 pieces and most of these are off the market. The coinage of South Africa has been bringing crazy high prices at auction and we feel that our price for this piece is very reasonable. Remember there were only a maximum of 550 pieces struck.

Picture of Gallienus Gazelle Bronze Antoninianus Very Fine

Gallienus Gazelle Bronze Antoninianus Very Fine

Gallienus ruled as sole emperor from A.D. 260-268 during one of the most difficult times in the history of the empire. Not only was the empire facing natural disasters and invasions on all sides but he had to face at least eight rebellions from his own governors and generals! He issued a fantastic group of bronze Antoninianus coins to honour the Gods, asking for their protection against these troubles. Though made in Europe, these coins were used in Britain and are a large part of the Mildenhall Hoard in the British Museum. Depicted on these coins are a variety of animals, some real and some mythical, each linked to one of the Roman deities. This series is known as the 'Gallienus Zoo Coins' and make a great set to try to complete. From this series, we offer here the Gazelle, identified as different to the antelope by the numbers ‘XI’ or ‘XII’ underneath and the straight horns. These are designed to honour Diana, the sister of Apollo and the goddess of the hunt. This is likely to bring luck to hunting and like her brother, for plagues and disease. The coins are at least Very Fine but because of the chaos at the time remember they may be a little weakly struck. As always the first to order will get the best. This is the last to complete the set we have available!

New Guinea, Edward VIII Brass

The Edward VIII pieces from New Guinea feature their magnificent bird, the Bird of Paradise. It was about the time of his reign that they discovered in the middle of Papua New Guinea over one million people that they didn’t know existed. It is a rather mysterious and exciting country and one that is unknown to most of us. We can offer the crownsized Edward VIII medallic patterns from New Guinea. They are one of the most beautiful of the series and not the easiest to find. Available in Uncirculated Brass.
