You have ‘W’ with a wombat, ‘F’ with a fruit bat and ‘M’ with a bid. Each piece comes in the capsule, they are Brilliant Uncirculated condition, weigh 11.66 grams of 999 fine silver.

Since Australia went over to the Decimal system 40 years ago, their pre-decimal series is now complete and finished. 91 years ago, in 1927, the first florin was issued. This commemorative was for the new Parliament Building. Struck in Sterling silver we are offering this florin in Very Fine condition.
Australia WMF Silver Dollar Set of 3 Special. In 2016 for the World Money Fair held in Berlin, Alphabet Coins Germany, the Australian Mint issued a special set of 3 small Dollar Coins in Silver. Each is struck in Frosted Uncirculated, which we call reverse Proof and weighs 11.66 grams. Only 1,000 sets were made for the World Money Fair, one coin with a yellow W, one with an orange M and one with a red F. The set comes in a full-colour information card that depicts Australian birds and animals. The Queen is on the obverse of each coin and it is a rather handsome and low mintage set. I don’t even think they were offered in Australia, but only for sale at the Fair in Berlin. I would guess that this set should sell for about £105-£125, but we bought them right and are going to sell them right. Our price is just £49.50 for the set of three in the colour folder, but supplies are very limited. That works out to less than £17 each, try buying a silver coin today for that price.
Billion is a mixture of base metal and silver, usually of a low silver content. These 1/8th Tical or 1 Fuang coins were issued about 1847. They are small and uniface, that means they have a design on one side only. The design is Hamza Bird. They look nice and silvery but they are only part silver. 170 years old and in Extremely Fine condition. An unusual coin from a difficult country, one that you don’t often see. They catalogue $27.50/£22.00 in Extremely Fine but our price is much more reasonable.
These beautiful Canadian Maple Leafs have just come in, these have the Maple Leaf privy mark on them. They have redesigned them with raised obverse and reverse to make the design stand out even more. They are Choice Brilliant Uncirculated and have a most unusual portrait of the Queen on the obverse. They look like the Australian reverse proofs and are just beautiful. We think you will love them…
In 1949 Newfoundland officially became part of the Canadian confederacy. Until the reign of King George VI they still issued their own coinage, but the largest coin the 50 Cents was last issued under King George V. We believe that this is the first time that we have had the King George V 50 Cents silver to offer you. A lucky buy has allowed us to offer them to you. Remember this is a country that no longer issues its own coinage. At the time this 50 Cents was the largest denomination coin issued by Newfoundland. The coins on offer are in Very Good condition and dates will be of our choice.
Before Nova Scotia became part of the Canadian Confederation, she issued some coins in her own name. The coin on offer is the large copper One Cent coin of Queen Victoria. There were never many coins issued by Nova Scotia. So if you collect a coin of a country then this is the coin you will need for your collection. You have the bust of Queen Victoria on one side and the name and the value on the other side. These One Cent coins were only issued between 1861 and 1864. They are in Very Good –Fine condition and we are sure you will be pleased with them. But supplies are limited.
These polymer £5 notes were issued by the Clydesdale Bank in 2016 (P235b) The previous year the Forth Railway Bridge which is illustrated on the back was inscribed as a World Heritage Site. The front has a portrait of Sir William Arrol, the engineer responsible for the construction of the bridge which was finished in 1890. The first notes the bank issued in 2016 had the prefix W/HS (World Heritage Site).
Whenever we have a Commonwealth coin on our Rare Coin listing there are always multiple orders for it. After it all it was a very interesting period of our history. So when we were offered these beautiful replica Commonwealth Halfcrown dated ‘1652’ we jumped at the chance. The reverse has two sets of shields conjoined that look like a pair of old fashioned trousers. The obverse has the Commonwealth shield in a wreath. They are retro dated 1652 and are struck in Proof condition and come in a capsule. You can tell it was made to look like the Shilling because there is ‘II*VI’ above the shields. That stood for Two Shillings and Sixpence. Beautiful pieces and make a good space holder until you are able to get the real thing. We are sure you will love them.
When the Duchess of Windsor’s possessions were sold in New York City, years and years ago, We bought only two lots. They comprised pieces of her personal stationary which were unused. The Duchess, also known as Wallace Simpson, was married to Edward VIII, who became Duke of Windsor when he abdicated. You get a large sheet of note paper and a folded note paper, each embossed with a crown and the initials WW for Wallace Windsor, each has a red and white border and the paper is a light blue. The envelope is blue with a small red crown. All three pieces are yours to keep, yours to give away or even to try and resell them. They are original and authentic and all 3 pieces of the Duchess of Windsor’s stationary can be yours fro a very reasonable price!
This is one of the most fantastic Treasure Trove Hoards we have ever bought. On the 10th of May 1877 at Montrave, Fifeshire, Scotland a hoard of King Edward I Silver Pennies were found. The coins are about 700 years old and the treasure was found 141 years ago! They were declared and sent to the British Museum for cataloguing. This Treasure hoard was found on the land belonging to Mr. Allan Gilmour of Lundin and Montrave. Now for the first time in 141 years, collectors have the chance to own a specimen from this incredible hoard. We are offering these Treasure Coins with a certificate at the same price I would charge for a normal Edward I Penny. But we do retain the right to raise the prices, as supplies run short. British Treasure over 700 years old and untouched for 141 years. Supplies are limited.
In 1953 Queen Elizabeth II had her Coronation, while she had been Queen for almost a year, this made it Official. It is Royal Mint policy only to issue coins for a new Monarch only after their Coronation. So, although Elizabeth became our Queen in 1952, no coins were issued until after her Coronation in 1953. The 1953 coins are one year only coins, as the next year they changed the legend slightly. In the Coronation Proof Set you have the Crown, Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, brass Threepence, Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing. The Proof Set comes in a maroon case, but because of the padding used in the cases, the insides are sometimes a bit spotty. The bronze coins may have toned or mellowed but the coins are all in Proof condition, as issued.
The 1964 Halfcrown has always been one of the most difficult to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Even at the time of issue, it was not an easy coin to find in top grade. If you are missing this coin or you know someone born or married in 1964 then this coin would make a great gift. Supplies are limited, don’t miss out.
In the United States collecting rolls of coins has always been an important part of the hobby. We don’t know if people, collect, hoard or buy to give away as gifts. In any case collecting coins by the roll is very important. So we sent to one of our suppliers in America and bought a number of their square plastic tubes for coins. The square ones will not roll all over the place. When we describe a roll it refers to the packaging and not the number in the roll. This particular role has 18 Florins. All coins are Queen Elizabeth II, the last year of issue of our Pre-Decimal coins. Start a new hobby, collect Brilliant Uncirculated rolls of British coins!
The 2016 Silver Britannia’s are certainly something Special. Firstly the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II has changed and she is now more mature. Also the quality of the silver being used is also different. While you still get one ounce of pure silver, they are now struck in four nines silver i.e. 999.9 and not 925 or Sterling Silver. This was done to placate the buyers in the Far East who want only pure silver coins with a pebble-dash surface. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Add one or more to your collection for a great price! The limit is 3 coins per collector at this price.
Anice example of a pre-decimal Elizabeth II Sixpence in Uncirculated condition. The Sixpence was the only coin that did not have a decimal equivalent that was allowed to still be used when decimal coins came in. That was because it was the price of a phone call in a call box and decimal coins were causing too many problems at that time.
These French Silver 1 Franc coins were some of the last French coins to be struck in silver for regular usage. They have a woman sowing seeds, which is based on a famous painting by Millet. The coins on offer are at least Extremely Fine and many are in Uncirculated condition. We have graded them Extremely Fine but many of you will be getting even better examples. The lowest price we have ever sold them at.
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. The last we offer from this series is of 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!
We were told by the people who struck the Patina crownsized retro patterns that striking anything in Pewter was something they did not relish. It is hard to strike, it is messy to strike and they would rather use another metal. But these George III Ceylon Patina retro patterns are struck in Proof Pewter and we think they look great. Forget the work and the mess the finished product is great. Because they were struck in Pewter, the mintages are limited. Get them while you can…
In 1921 George V was our Monarch and he had celebrated the 10th anniversary of his Coronation (1911-1921). The smallest and most used coin of this year was the bronze Farthing. You have the bare head of King George V facing left on the obverse and the reverse has the seated figure of Britannia. For some reason, the 1921 in high grades is most difficult to get. After all, it is almost 100 years old. Available here in Brilliant Uncirculated. It has been a long time since we have seen such nice examples of this scarce date of Farthings. Treat yourself; after all, you deserve it…
