George V, Rocking Horse Commemorative Crown, 1935 Unc

We recently purchased a small group of the 1935 George V Silver Jubilee Crowns. This was the first-ever commemorative crown issued and it was for the King’s 25th anniversary or Silver Jubilee on the throne. You have the bust of the King on one side and a most unusual rendition of St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. In fact, our owner was the first person to call it ‘The Rocking Horse Crown’ as that was what it looked like. This crown was only struck in 1935 for King George V’s Diamond Jubilee. Although there was the Great Depression on, the public loved this Crown and the Royal Mint had to strike more of them than anticipated. Now over 80 years later it is still highly collected, but it is one of the best value Crowns around. We can offer you this 1935 Silver Jubilee Crown struck in Silver and in Uncirculated condition.

George V, Rocking Horse Crown, 1935 Choice Unc

In 1935 the Royal Mint issued its first ever-commemorative Crown. It was for the 25th Anniversary, the Jubilee, of King George V. He had reigned from 1910 until 1935 and the Mint wanted to honour him and his Jubilee. On the reverse is a very stylised St. George slaying the dragon. Years ago, when Richard first saw this coin he said: ‘it looks like a rocking horse’. The numismatic trade picked that up and from that day until now, it is known as the Rocking Horse Crown. It was only issued for one year and was struck in .500 fine Silver. It is an important coin, as the King died the very next year. We have just purchased a nice little group of these coins in high grade and offer them to you now. The group was rather small, so if you want one, I suggest that you get in quickly. They are available in Uncirculated condition.

Golden Jubilee Sierra Leone Coin Cover

It is now some 17 years since H. M. the Queen celebrated her 50th anniversary of being our Monarch. It was celebrated with this handsome First Day Cover and Crown and now you can add one to your collection. The cover shows the Queen in bright pink coat. The coin shows the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. The crown is from one of her most remote territories, Sierra Leone. The crown is struck in Proof cupro-nickel. I don’t know what the original issue price was, but I think that our price of just £9.50 is very reasonable considering that this crown and cover is now 17 years old.

The coin shows her crown sitting on a cushion with H. M. on the reverse. The crown is from one of her most remote territories, Saint Helena. The crown is struck in Proof cupro-nickel. I don’t know what the original issue price was, but I think that our price of just £9.50 is very reasonable considering that this crown and cover is now 17 years old.

Himyarite Kingdom (Modern day Yemen) Silver Coin

The Himyarite Kingdom was part of ancient Yemen, whose capital was Zatar. They were a trading nation between East Africa and the Roman or Mediterranean world. They were known for their trade-in Frankincense and Myrrh and their geographical position made them very important for trade. This choice silver coin is a Scyphate Quinarius from the 1st or 2nd Century AD, so it is about 1800-1900 years old and was struck in Raidan. There is a portrait of a man on one side and a small portrait of a man on the other side. These coins are basically in as struck Mint condition, cup-shaped. We did find a similar coin on an American dealer list about two years ago. It was priced at $195.00 (£150) and had sold quite quickly. Our coins are as nice or better, but our price is far more attractive.
