Set of five: 1 Cent, 2 Cents, 10 Cents, ¼ Rupee and ½ Rupee.
Four of the coins are dated 1978 and have the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the 1 Cent is dated 1949 and has the portrait of
King George VI. A most unusual and difficult set to get these days.
In 1953 New Zealand issued their first coins for their new Queen, Elizabeth II. It wasn’t until 1955 that they noticed that the Queen was wearing a strapless gown. This caused quite an uproar and in 1956 they redesigned the portrait of H. M. The Queen wearing a dress with straps.
We offer the strapless set of New Zealand coins all 7 of them, 1/2d, 1d, 3d, 6d, 1/-, 2/- and 2/6 all in selected circulated condition. It is a variety that most collectors outside of New Zealand don’t even know about let alone have in their collections. Supplies are limited, remember you get all seven coins of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a strapless gown.
These Russian Silver coins of Peter the Great were actually made by rolling out a thin wire of silver and then hammering out the design on them by hand. The value was standardized by the Reform Act of 1535.
You have a horseman on the reverse and a legend in old Russian on the reverse. They are tiny silver coins with the denomination of Polushka and they were literally made from a piece of silver wire. They date from about 1700 and are a most unusual coin to have in your collection. Hundreds of years old and something your friends would probably never seen before. An actual coin struck from a piece of wire although it is silver wire
Founded in 709 B.C., the ancient city of Parion is the present day town of Kemer in Canakkale province of Turkey. It was a major coastal city and trading port with two harbours. Parion enjoyed strong relations with Thrace and Anatolia throughout history and it was the main customs station through which all goods bound for Constantinople (Istanbul) from Greece and the
Aegean had to pass. After being conquered by the Persian Empire in the 6th Century B.C. it passed to Lysimachus in the 4th Century B.C. and then the Attalids in the 3rd. From one tyrant to another! A local city-coinage system was introduced by the ancient Greeks and continued through to Roman times with later coins being issued in the name of the emperor.
The image of the Gorgoneion was used to ward off evil and for that reason was put on door frames, shields and, of course, on coins! We have recently bought a small collection of archaic Silver Drachm made in this city in the 5th Century B.C.. The obverse shows the facing head of a Gorgoneion with a protruding tongue and the reverse depicts a disorganized linear pattern
within an incuse square.
The coins are all in a Fine condition as they were used at the time and have survived from 2400 years ago! But they are a fascinating charm to ward off evil, then and now. Pick up this ancient coin for just £90, priced to please!
This is pure silver (999 fine) coin of the Solomon Islands with the Queen’s portrait on the obverse. But the reverse is printed in full colour to look like a pizza. You scratch the picture and it smells like a pizza. Better yet the box it comes in what looks like a pizza box. You can sure have a lot of fun with these.
We've just found what remains of the original stock we've purchased. There are not many left, and these are getting harder and harder to find. So if you want to acquire this pure silver crown with a secret ingredient, the time is now!
