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.

George III GB Incurrupta Patina Cupro-nickel

This is a Patina or retro-pattern to show what something might have looked like, had it been issued at the time. These are privately minted to the highest quality and are full crownsized 38mm. This is the George III pattern Crown issued with a large head of George III and an inscription that has caused it to be known as the Incorrupta Pattern. It is struck in Prooflike cupro-nickel to the highest standard. Because we bought these years ago, we can offer them at what seems almost a crazy low price. If they were made today, they would cost a heck of a lot more money.

George III Wales Patina Silver

This Wales crownsized Patina retro-pattern is based on the portrait of King George III that the Bank of England used on their emergency coinage in the early 1800’s. In fact I think this portrait is as good as that one. These Patina pieces are struck in Proof Sterling Silver. I don’t know what the mintages are, but I believe they are rather small. We bought this lot just recently from a dealer, but we don’t know where he got them from. You have the bust of King George III on one side and the symbol of which country it represents on the reverse. All are in Proof Sterling Silver.
