George VI, Cupro-nickel English & Scottish Shillings Set

In 1947 the Royal Mint took out all Silver from our coinage and used cupronickel instead. They still made two types of Shillings each year, with an English reverse and a Scottish reverse. This short series 1947-1951 has some very interesting aspects about them. The 1947 and 1948 issue had one legend, and then when India got independence they had to change the legend again. NO Shillings were struck for circulation in 1952 as the King died and Princess Elizabeth became our Queen. Normally we sell the two sets, English and Scottish in Sandhill Holders, but as Sandhill is no longer making cases, that is now impossible. Our normal price on the two sets in selected circulated condition is £29.95; there are a total of ten coins in the set. We have had the two sets sorted into snap lock plastic bags, one for English Shillings and one for Scottish Shillings. We are going to offer them for just £9.50 for both sets. That will save you £20.45. You don’t get the Sandhill Cases but you do save £20.45!

Elizabeth II, EEC 50 Pence Proof, 1973 (in Royal Mint Case)

There has been all this noise about the Brexit coin released recently by the Royal Mint. We are now going to offer you the first Real Brexit Coin. Namely the old large sized 50 Pence that was issued in 1973, some 47 years ago when we joined the European Union. You cannot leave unless you are already a member! This coin is the old large style 50 Pence and it depicted 9 hands of the European Community holding each other in a circle. Far fewer members, far easier to get things done. This original First Real Brexit Coin was struck in cupro-nickel in both Uncirculated and Proof condition. Here we offer the Proof coin in a Royal Mint case. They are a lot more difficult to find than the new Brexit coin and are of course 47 years old and to be honest perhaps cheaper.

Solomon Islands, Pizza Coin

This is pure silver (999 fine) coin of the Solomon Islands with the Queen’s portrait on the obverse. But the reverse is printed in full colour to look like a pizza. You scratch the picture and it smells like a pizza. Better yet the box it comes in what looks like a pizza box. You can sure have a lot of fun with these. We've just found what remains of the original stock we've purchased. There are not many left, and these are getting harder and harder to find. So if you want to acquire this pure silver crown with a secret ingredient, the time is now!
