1981 Gold Proof Sovereign

In 1981 the late Princess Diana married Prince Charles, so in the coin trade this coin has always been known as the Charles & Diana Sovereign. You have H.M. Queen Elizabeth II on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. Each coin is in gleaming Proof condition, the finest grade that you can get. They are struck by the Royal Mint in 22ct Gold and come in their original case. Unfortunately on some of the cases there was a label attached to the case and part of it might still be adhering, but the coins themselves are in perfect Proof condition. Today the Royal Mint is charging £425.00 for this 1981 Proof Sovereign in the original case.

Septimius Severus Silver Denarius Very Fine

Septimius Severus was Roman Emperor from AD 193-211. In AD 208 he travelled to Britain to strengthen Hadrian’s Wall and went on to invade Scotland that same year but his plans were cut short when he became ill and died in York in AD 211. We have recently bought a nice group of his silver denarius in Very Fine Condition. There are different types but all have his portrait on the obverse and usually a standing or seated figure on the reverse.

Septimius Severus Denarius Fine

In A.D. 208 Septimius Severus set off for Britannia to conquer the island but he would never see Rome again! The people and the landscape of Caledonia (Scotland) proved too much and Septimius Severus, exhausted by his efforts, fell ill and died in York in early A.D. 211. His dying words to his sons were ‘stay friends, be generous to the soldiers and no one else matters’. In his reign he had increased a soldiers pay from 375 to 500 silver Denari a year, a good wage in those days! This meant he created over 1000 different denarius reverse types. We offer you these silver Denari with the head of Septimius Severus on the obverse and various reverses from the Roman Emperor who died in York. Offered here in Fine grading.

The back of the note features a youthful looking Britannia seated. They measure 140x85mm and were legal tender until 31 August 1973. We offer them in Circulated Fine Condition.
