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.
The Portrait £5 was so called because
it was the first £5 note issued by the
Bank of England to feature a portrait
of the reigning monarch. It was first
introduced in 1963 and the portrait on the front of the note was the young
Queen Elizabeth who had been crowned 10 years earlier in 1953. 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.
These are very attractive pieces produced with a gilded finish with black, red and turquoise enamel. At the centre is a diagram showing the atom being split into Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation. This medal was awarded to soldiers, policemen and many civilians who handled the fallout from this disaster. Complete with ribbon and suspension.
We all admired the excellent award winning movie, ‘The King’s Speech’ in 2010 which showed
King George VI’s determination and strength. Now you can own original coins from the reign of
George VI issued from 1937-1952, a Coronation Stamp issued in 1937 and a banknote issued just after
World War II.
You’ll receive the coins that were actually used during George VI’s reign: the bronze Farthing,
Halfpenny and Penny, plus the brass Threepence, Silver Threepence and cupronickel Sixpence, Shilling,
Florin and Half Crown. These are original, genuine coins and were actually used as money in the reign
of King George VI.
You also get an Uncirculated British Armed Forces 2nd series Pound issued by Command of the Army
Council in 1948. To top it off, you get a Mint stamp issued in 1937 for George VI’s Coronation, issued
and over printed for use in British Morocco. This collection is exclusive to Coincraft.
The entire collection comes in a presentation wallet loaded with interesting and historic information.
Many collectors have called
this silver Maria Theresa Thaler
the most beautiful coin in the world.
Personally I think the Edward VII Florin
in high grade is more attractive, but it is a personal choice.
This large sized silver crown has been struck for over
200 years, in fact it is still being struck today at the Austrian Mint.
These were bought about 10 years ago and are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition. For years Ethiopia would only accept Maria Theresa Thalers in exchange. The coins we offer are dated 1780 as are most MT Thalers, but they were struck about 10 years ago.
Beautiful coins and well worth having.
Thinking of starting an ancient Roman coin collection? We are offering a 'starter collection' containing three different genuine bronze coins of different Roman Emperors spanning a 72 year period from AD 306-378, this also makes the coins at least 1640 years old.
Each coin will be in nice collectable condition, clearly identifiable with a well defined portrait of the emperor who issued it. The coins you will receive are struck in bronze and are genuine ancient Roman coins which were minted and circulated across the Empire between AD 306-378 issued by the Emperors Constantine The Great, Constantius II and Valens. Each coin comes with an information sheet with a short history of each emperor.
