In the early reign of King George V the coins were struck in Sterling Silver

Halfcrown. Condition of all coins available is Fine or better.
Following on with the handsome Queen Victoria Jubilee Head series, we can offer
you the New Zealand piece. Remember that Coincraft bought all 80 Sterling Silver Proof
striking of this Patina issue, so if you want one, Coincraft has them.
On one side you have a fantastic rendition of the Jubilee Head portrait of Queen Victoria,
the only difference is that the retro date 1887 is at the end of the legend. The reverse has an
outline map of New Zealand in reverse Proof along with a three masted sailing ship.
They are full crownsized and struck in Proof Sterling Silver, they look fantastic, the mintage
is very low and the price is fantastic. If we sound enthusiastic, that is because we are. We thought
they were so nice that we bought the entire mintage.
Every time we have these Benham ‘Silk’ Concord First Day Covers, they always
sell out very quickly. Each features a beautiful full colour picture
of a Concorde with a foreign stamp and a British stamp.
We are going to put together small collections of three (3) different Benham ‘Silk’
Concorde covers. As usual this is a very popular
theme and demand will be high, so if you want a set of three different, please get
in quickly to avoid disappointment. They are beautiful and we don’t know if we can get
any more, ever…Covers supplied will not necessarily be those illustrated.
