Hungary, Charles I Silver Grade II

Born Karoly Robert, but known as Charles Robert or Charles I, he was born in 1288 and died in 1342. He was invited to Hungary by a Croatian Lord in 1300 and when Andrew III died the next year, Charles was crowned King. He had to fight many battles to keep his crown and believed in absolute power for the King. These Silver Dinars have the portrait of the King on one side and the coat of arms on the other side. Remember that these Silver coins are about 700 years old and supplies, are of course limited. We can offer them in two grades, Grade I and Grade II. Here we present Grade II, in this coin the shield is quite visible, but the portrait is a little weak.

British West Africa 1/10th Penny 1933 Uncirculated

The smallest coin issued by British West Africa under Kings George V and George VI is the 1/10th Penny. It is about the size of the old sixpence, struck in cupro-nickel and with a hole in the middle. The hole was so the locals could carry the coins on a string as they didn’t have pockets. Uncirculated condition and generally difficult to find.

Picture of India, Ancient India Elephant

India, Ancient India Elephant

We were offered a group of ancient Indian copper coins recently; they were issued between 59- 131 AD. They have an elephant on one side and some circles on the other side. They were very crudely struck; after all they were a very low denomination at the time. They are from Satavahanas, Pulomavi in India. We went through 2,000 coins in the hoard and picked out the best ones available. We went for the best elephants that we could find, in fact we bought only 10% of the hoard, and these were the only ones that we thought were of sufficient quality for our customers. A very old coin but it won’t cost you the earth. As the elephant is now endangered, we think this ancient coin is very appropriate.
