In 2000 the African nation of The Republic of Somalia issued a series of crownsized 25 Shillings depicting Icons of the Millennium. One of the people so honoured was the late Pope John Paul II.
You have a bust of the Pope on one side with the arms of Somalia on the other side. These
crowns are struck in Prooflike cupronickel and are now 18 years old. We have what we believe
is the last supply around and they are priced to tempt and delight you.
The African nation of
Somalia issued a
group of crownsized
coins to honour famous
people. Not everyone of
them was a hero, but they
were famous and well known. For
this issue we can offer Winston Churchill our hero Prime Minister during the
Second World War, in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Struck in cupro-nickel you
have a portrait on one side and the arms of Somalia on the other side.
Each piece is full crownsized and Brilliant Uncirculated condition, getting harder
and harder to find.
When Nelson Mandela was finally released from Prison after many years hard labour, he shocked the world. He came out
in a suit and didn’t hate those who put him inside. Rather he realised that he could help his country go forward and regain
its place in the world. He was a hero and loved and admired by not only his own countrymen but by people all over the world. There was a Crown issued for Mandela as part of the ‘Icons of the 20th Century’ series; we are able to offer this piece to
add to your collection.
Supplies are running out and I don’t know where or when we will be able to get any more. A true gentleman, someone
who put his country before himself and someone I admire. Add the Crown to your collection today.
