The hoard of Edward I Silver Pennies was found at Montrave, Fifeshire in Scotland in 1877. It was found on the land belonging to Mr. Allan Gilmour of Lundin and
Montrave. It was fully declared and sat in the British Museum for 40-50 years while they examined it. We bought a large part of the hoard from one of the heirs
of the man who found them in 1877.
We are offering you the chance on the Rarer Mints. They are priced right to make you happy, and if you come from one of these places, so much the better. Each coin
comes with a certificate certifying that your coin comes from the Montrave Treasure Hoard and which town it was minted in. Of course the Key coin is from Berwick-on-Tweed. Here we present the coin Minted in Bristol.
We have just 10 sets of Pope John Paul II Somalia Crowns. There are three Prooflike
pieces in each set and with the increase in the metal prices; the planchets alone are worth a bunch.
As we need the space, and we do not want to count them again, we will be offering them at a discounted price.
Only a few lucky collectors will get to bag this bargain, so make sure you are one of them!
The brass threepence was first issued under King George VI and there are a number
of difficult or Scarce dates. 1950 is one of those. It was issued after the end
of World War II and towards the end of the King’s reign.
The coins are in Fine condition and if you know someone born in 1950 this coin
would make an excellent gift. The bare head of the King on one side and the thrift
plant on the other side.
In 1887 Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee 1837-1887, so for the first time in 50 years she allowed the design of the coinage to be changed. The Sixpence had a shield on the reverse, which didn’t work at all. Crooks were gold plating them and passing them off as Half Sovereigns. So later in the year they changed the reverse and added a value within the wreath. We have a nice group of choice examples of both types of Jubilee Sixpences with the wreath reverse and the shield reverse. The coins are in Choice Uncirculated condition and are getting more and more difficult to find.
