This beautiful set of three famous paintings was issued by the Post Office almost 50 years ago. There are three stamps of 4d (Master Lambton) by Sir Thomas Lawrence, 9d (Mares & Foals) by George Stubbs and 1/6 (Children coming out of school) by L. S. Lowry in Mint unused condition. At the time the face value of 31 pence would have bought you 5 copies of the Sunday Times with colour supplement (today £12.50).
We bought the sets from someone who put them away in 1967. I am going to offer you a spectacular buy. I am going to offer the set of 3 Mint unused British Painting Stamps not for £12.50 a set, but rather 4 sets, a total of 12 Mint Stamps for just £4.50. These would make excellent gifts for anyone interested in art.
This year Australia has issued some wonderful new designs of Silver Kookaburras. We offer the three different sizes: 1 ounce of pure silver, 10 ounces of pure silver and 1 Kilo of pure Silver, the choice is yours. This year’s issue honours the 30th anniversary of the silver Kookaburra. On one side you have a cameo portrait of H. M. Queen Elizabeth II with a kookaburra with a larger kookaburra on the other side. They are struck at the Australian Mint in Perth, Western Australia. Each coin is struck in 999 fine silver and contains either 1 ounce, 10 ounces or 1 Kilo of fine Silver. They are in Prooflike Uncirculated condition, also known as reverse proofs. This is their 30th anniversary and they have outdone themselves in the new design. Be one of the first collectors to own one, I know you will love them.
Ian has bought a group of Queen Victoria Young Head Sovereigns the type with St. George slaying the dragon. Each coin weighs about 8 grams and is struck in solid 22ct Gold. The coins were struck from 1871-1887 and are all in Very Fine or even slightly better condition. So the newest of these gold sovereigns is now 133 years old! But it gets even better, all the coins that Ian bought were struck in Australia at both the Sydney and the Melbourne Mint. There is either a small ‘S’ or a small ‘M’ under St. George and the dragon on the little mound they are standing on. Here we present the Melbourne Sovereign with the 'M' Mark. Australian Sovereigns were struck in Australia because they found so much gold there.
These are really nice examples, over 133 years old, in Very Fine or slightly better condition, what more could you ask for? I hear you say... How about £30.00 off our normal price for a Queen Victoria Young Head Sovereign?! Now, that would be incredible! Supplies are of course, very limited, so get in quickly on this special offer!
Canada was the last country in the world to issue commemorative silver dollars that were actually used in everyday usage. Here we are offering a 1967 Canadian Dollar in Uncirculated condition featuring Charlottetown; these are full crownsized coins and struck in 800 fine Silver.
Before Canada became a Confederation, some parts issued their own currency and New Brunswick
was one of those. This is a copper Large Cent with the portrait of Queen Victoria on one side and a
crown within a wreath with the denomination and date on the other side.
This coin was only issued for two years 1861 and 1864, so it is an important type coin and difficult to
find. All coins are in Very Good-Fine condition and represent a different country for your collection.
These coins are now some 150 years old and only struck for two years.
The British Gold Sovereign was first issued under King George III as a replacement for the Guinea series. Each coin weighs just under 8 grams and is struck in 22ct Gold. Here we are offering the Jody Clark Sovereign Sovereign by type rather than by date.
