Coincraft Newsletter No. 1

Hello and welcome to our first newsletter,

You are receiving this because you have registered on our website. We want to stay in touch with our customers and offer you a better service and some very special offers as a Coincraft customer.
The first exciting news is that we have recently re-launched our website, the address is the same: www.coincraft.com but the layout has changed, new features are available and, most importantly, thousands of new items have been added and we are uploading loads of new items every week.
We welcome your feedback on your experience with Coincraft so please visit the new site and if you have any comments, please send an email to webadmin@coincraft.com. Also, if there are items that you are looking for but you can't find them on the website then please email us and let us know what you are looking for and we will try to help you.
In each Newsletter we aim to update you on new items added to the website and to present you with a special offer unique to Coincraft customers.

Special Offer
Victoria, Farthing, 1890. Brilliant Uncirculated. £45.00  (UFA90)
 
This issue's special offer is a fantastic 1890 Farthing in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The current catalogue price for this coin is £100 in Uncirculated. Ours have the occasional toning spot but other than that they are in a Brilliant Uncirculated condition, just the same as the day they were stuck. We know that because they came to us in a sealed mint bag, so they have never seen the light of day until now.
We are not asking £100 for them even though they are Brilliant Uncirculated - so worth more than the catalogue price. We are only asking £45 each and this is exclusive to Coincraft customers, while stocks last.
Recently Added to the Website

Another wonderful item on the website is a Silver Drachm of Alexander the Great. The obverse shows the head of Herakles wearing a lion-skin head-dress and on the reverse is Zeus enthroned holding an eagle and sceptre.
Oberammergau, Notgeld, set of 3 notes, 1921. UNC. £4.25 (WGE8629)
 
A large selection of German Notgeld including sets of 25pf, 50pf and 75pf notes issued in 1921 by the town of Oberammergau. Oberammergau is a town in the Bavarian Alps. This set of notes has views of various local buildings on one side and on the other they have depictions of the crucifixion of Christ from the Passion Play which has been performed as a tradition since 1634 by the inhabitants of the town.
And Just for a Little Fun ...
Solomon Islands Pizza $5 Silver Crown. £34.50 (FSO8101)
 
Firstly, it is not made of pizza but of 999 fine Silver and was issued by the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. It weighs 20 grams, is a $5.00 coin with Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and the mintage is a very small 1,500 coins and it was issued in 2015.
What they have done is printed a full-colour picture of a pizza on it and impregnated the smell of pizza in the picture. They guarantee approximately 60 rubbings per coin for you to smell the pizza. The box it comes in even looks like a pizza box, in red, white and green, the colours of Italy. Everyone who has seen it loves them, once they get over the disbelief that it actually smells of cooked pizza dough, fresh herbs and melted cheese.
One Million Pound Note. £10.95. (BZB4321)
 
Become an instant millionaire with our wonderful Million Pound Notes! The Million Pound Note featured in the 1954 Gregory Peck film of the same name. He had the use of a Million Pound note for 1 month and as no-one could change it, people were more than willing to extend him credit.

These Million Pound notes are a limited edition, taken from the original props used for the film. They measure approx 8” x 5” and comes in a special window envelope. With a story card included.

Or even a Million Dollar Note! These Million Dollar notes are a lot of fun. They are a private issue with an illustration of the Statue of Liberty on the front.

USA, Private Issue, Million Dollar Note. Uncirculated. £2.95 (WUS9975)
