The Bank of Mozambique building is on the fronts. Illustrations on the back include the barrage

whopping US$100 but this set is available to our collectors at just £14.50.
In 1992 everyone thought that the new European currency was going to be called the
Ecu. So International Numismatic Agency (INA) made a private pattern Ecu to
show what a Northern Ireland issue might look like, if it were ever issued, in other
words a Patina.
It is crownsized and struck in Prooflike cupro-nickel. On one side a woman playing
the harp along with the denomination ‘Twenty-Five Ecu’ and the date 1992. The
other side has a globe showing Europe with Neptune and Britannia on either side of
the globe. The legend reads ‘Europe * Europa and N. Ireland’.
These are now 27 years old and it has been quite sometime since we last offered
them for sale. Just found a small group in one of vault rooms. If you collect Irish
coins, Euro or Ecu coins, then this is the piece for you…
Last year was the 80th anniversary of the Year of Three Kings, George V, Edward VIII and
George VI. ICB issued a beautiful Edward VIII collection, full crownsized in eight different
metals with a milled edge.
We bought the entire mintage, except for one set that is being put into auction. Other Edward
VIII issues are being sold on eBay for over £245 a collection. The metals they are struck in
are: Sterling Silver, Golden Alloy, Copper, Gold Plated Copper, Aluminium, Polished Steel,
Pewter and Nickel Silver.
A youthful portrait of the uncrowned King is on one side and a new version of St. George
slaying the dragon is on the other side. Only 100 collections made with the milled edge, that
is all, forever.
We were looking through some Sterling Silver Shilling that we bought from New Guinea and we
realised that we had two Kings represented, George V and George VI. Then we remembered
that we had some Pennies of King Edward VIII of New Guinea, the only coin struck for him.
So why not combine the three and you would have 3 Kings of New Guinea.
So here is what you will get a Sterling Silver Shilling of King George V of New Guinea,
all of these coins are struck with a hole in the middle for wearing around your neck. They are
in Very Fine condition. A Penny of King Edward VIII in Uncirculated condition. Finally a
Sterling Silver Shilling of King George VI also in Very Fine condition.
We can’t think of any other country that we could do this for, nor any other country so far
away and so exotic.
Just to show that we honour all American Presidents, this time we offer a Barack Obama
Presidential Round. It is in Proof condition and in a protective capsule. You have a full
colour photo of President Obama with the Capital Building behind him and the Statue of
Liberty and the American flag beside him. The reverse shows the seal of the American
Government and the legend ‘Make America Great Again’. Obama was the first President to
use this turn of phrase.
He was the 44th President of the United States and was very well liked by both the people
and the government. We think it is a rather handsome piece and he was President for eight years,
all the Constitution allows. Supplies are limited.
