China, 4 Scarce China Coins

4 Chinese coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Krause now list them at some very high prices in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We have had them a long time, so we can sell them to you at a reasonable price. 1 Fen 1983 ($15), 2 Fen 1987 ($8), 5 Fen 1990 ($12) and 1 Jiao 1996 ($4.50). All are struck in aluminium and all are Brilliant Uncirculated. Total catalogue value is $39.50 (£30). Our price is very attractive; if we don’t sell them all, we will take them to Hong Kong and sell them.

Constantinople Commemorative Coin

This is a very interesting Ancient Roman commemorative coin of Constantine the Great. It was issued to commemorate the founding of Constantinople. You have the bust of Constantine the Great on one side and a standing goddess with wings on the other. Roman commemorative coins tend to be scarce and expensive. This is one of only two commemoratives that is both reasonable and available. They are struck in copper and we have them in Fine, they represent a very important historic event.

Diana Medallion in Colour

Unfortunately we were only able to get 100 of this fantastic Diana Princess of Wales medallion. It is a medal although one side does say ‘Five Pounds’. You have Diana on one side with a close up view and the other side has her picture in full colour. It is fully crownsized, struck in a gold looking metal, in Proof condition in a protective capsule. But please remember that we were only allocated 100 pieces. So once they are gone, they are gone.

E7 Cyprus Patina Crowned COPPER

This is the Rare Patina version of the Edward VII Cyprus issue, the type with the crowned bust. The mintage of these pieces totalled only 150 examples! This is the Key to the series…! On one side you have the crowned bust of Edward VII and on the other the arms of Cyprus. These full Double Florin sized pieces were struck in three metals Proof Sterling Silver, Proof Copper and Proof Goldine. Remember only 150 of each were ever struck. We are offering them individually and as a set, here we are offering the the Patina version in Proof Copper.

Edward VIII Cover & MR

In 1996 when the Post Office went on strike, Coincraft was the only company in the world to legally issue stamps. We issued six different postage stamps, with a face value of 1p, 10p, 25p, 50p, £1 & £5. Each stamps depicting the coins of Edward VIII, that would have been issued had Edward not abdicated. The stamps were printed by The House of Questa, the same firm that used to print stamps for the Post Office. We have just 100 of the covers, cancelled with the date of the strike 6.8.96 and containing one of the crownsized Edward VIII Great Britain medallic replica. We thought that we were out of stock years ago, but a visit to one of our vault rooms proved me wrong. A fantastic item and priced to tempt and delight you.

Edward VIII GB 1936 Silver

These full crownsized pieces were issued to show what Edward VIII’s coinage might have looked like, had he not abdicated. The reverses look very similar to the one used on the George VI crown, which makes sense. There are two types. We are offering the type with a full legend. The mintage is just 750 in Proof Sterling Silver, which we think is rather small. Add this to your British collection, after all they are much less expensive than the original, which sold for over £60,000 years ago…
