These are very interesting pieces from the 3rd to 2nd Century B.C. We bought a dealers entire holding of these beautiful Ring Money. Some people say they could go back as far as 800 B.C. but we believe the dealer, who said ‘they are only 3rd-2nd Century B.C.’.
It’s thought they were used as a medium of exchange, before the actual issue of coinage in this area. Their size is approx 12-18mm and have been professionally conserved. Recently, we found out that Richard had bought them about five years ago, and complety forgot that we had them in the first place... Priced to please you!
This Scarce Crown or One Peso was issued by the Dominican Republic for the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, and was struck by our own Royal Mint.
It was issued in 1995 which is now some 25 years ago. You almost never see this crown, because the whole United Nations project was not a winner for the Mint.
It has doves of peace above a globe of the world with the United Nations emblem. The obverse has the arms of the Dominican Republic.
We could charge a lot of money for this Scarce Crown, but at Coincraft when we buy right, you buy right…
In 1995 the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £2 piece to mark the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. They used the iconic Dove of Peace and the inscription read ‘1945 In Peace Goodwill 1995’. They were struck in a brass coloured metal for general circulation.
You must remember that this was 25 years ago and we at that time used the older large sized Two Pound coin. You have the so-called Maklouf portrait of the Queen on one side and the Dove of Peace on the other side.
While it is relatively easy to find Prooflike Specimen coins from the bubble packs and Mint Sets, it is not so easy to find the coins that were actually struck for circulation. The coins on offer are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and the difficult ones, the ones issued for circulation.
Here is a fantastic Special Offer for you on the difficult to find 2019 Royal Mint Gold Proof Sovereign. These coins are complete in their original, never opened, Royal Mint case of issue with the certificate of authenticity from the Royal Mint. These are exactly as were advertised on their website, unfortunately, they have sold out and they are no longer available from the Royal Mint.
But they will sell you a Brilliant Uncirculated example of the 2019 Gold Sovereign in some sort of package for ‘only’ £500.00. How about a choice Proof example of the same year, complete in its original packaging for less than the price of an uncirculated example? Only at Coincraft – Britain’s Coin Shop!
We sell a 2019 Gold Proof Sovereign in the original Royal Mint package with the original Royal Mint certificate of authenticity for just £450. That’s right, a Proof for £50 less than they sell an Uncirculated coin.
In 1935 King George V reached his Silver Jubilee (1910-1935), a feat that not all that many of our Monarchs had or would reach. A handsome Penny featuring the bare head portrait of the King was issued for that year.
We have a nice group of these 1935 Pennies on offer, but supplies are limited. Grade offered is Uncirculated. The coins are handsome, and they were issued just a year before the death of King George V, which brought about great problems with royal succession.
