George V 1D H Mintmark 1918 Fine

It is strange but true; the Royal Mint did not strike a lot of the bronze coins that were issued in this country. In fact at one point they were using two private mints to strike coins for them. The Heaton Mint which has a mintmark ‘H’ as on this coin and the Kings Norton Mint which used a ‘KN’ mintmark. Interesting enough, both private mints have gone out of business. This Penny is dated 1918, which was during World War I and we guess the Royal Mint had too many other things on its plate. The mintmark is below Britannia to the left of the date. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and are rather difficult to find these days. The Royal Mint didn’t strike this 1918 Penny but the Mint Birmingham Ltd did. Why not add one to your collection?

George III Imitation Spade Half Guinea

Every week we have someone bring in a Guinea or Half Guinea token and we have to tell them that they are not real. It started in the 1800’s with a man called Kettle, who made gold looking brass copies of the King George III Spade Guinea and Half Guinea. The story is that an actress used to throw these to the audience at the end of her performance. The audience was to respond by throwing real Gold Guineas back. Is this true or not, we just don’t know. But over the years a vast number of imitations were made, none of which were meant to pass as real Gold coins. A number even had advertising on them and were obviously given out as a sort of store card. We have nice examples of the Guinea and Half Guinea from Victorian times and well over 100 years old. They have been gilded or even gold plated, but they are not real Gold. Wonderful conversation pieces and today they are getting more and more difficult to find in any sort of quantity. The designs may vary slightly.

France 1 Franc Ext Fine 1917

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.
