Edward VIII 1936 Wreath Set Milled

The Patina series had a ‘Wreath Crown’ but dated 1937 and the mintage was 975 pieces, we quickly sold out. Last year was the 80th anniversary of The Year of Three Kings, so we are proud to offer this 1936 Patina with a much lower mintage of just 100 pieces in each metal. This crownsized beauty was struck in eight different metals and with two edges, plain and milled; here we offer you the milled-edged variant. We bought almost the entire mintage, except for four sets which went to the INA archives and to auction. The pieces are beautiful full crownsized Proofs, struck in Sterling Silver, Golden Alloy, Copper, Gold-coated Copper, Aluminium, Polished Steel, Pewter and Nickel Silver.

New Zealand Victoria Silver Patina

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.

Romanian Basketball Copper Piedfort

This pattern Crown was issued by the Romanian Mint for the Olympics held in Atlanta, Georgia in 1996. What is most fascinating is the mintage, Just 125 pieces were ever made. This makes it one of the lowest mintage and scarcest Olympic coins ever made. It honours the Olympic sport of basketball. It shows two players jumping for a ball. The other side has the arms of Romania and the date 1996. This piece is struck in copper, but it is double the normal thickness or a piedfort. A piedfort crown is a rather large coin and it is in proof condition. We bought a large proportion of the mintage and over the years they are starting to run out. Especially now that we are getting interest from the former Soviet countries. The people have money and want to collect their own coinage. Remember there were only 125 pieces ever made in copper piedfort.

Commonwealth Halfcrown Replica

Whenever we have a Commonwealth coin on our Rare Coin listing there are always multiple orders for it. After it all it was a very interesting period of our history. So when we were offered these beautiful replica Commonwealth Halfcrown dated ‘1652’ we jumped at the chance. The reverse has two sets of shields conjoined that look like a pair of old fashioned trousers. The obverse has the Commonwealth shield in a wreath. They are retro dated 1652 and are struck in Proof condition and come in a capsule. You can tell it was made to look like the Shilling because there is ‘II*VI’ above the shields. That stood for Two Shillings and Sixpence. Beautiful pieces and make a good space holder until you are able to get the real thing. We are sure you will love them.
