Russia, wire money, Silver 1689-1725

The value was standardized by the Reform Act of 1535. You have a horseman on the reverse and a legend in old Russian on the reverse. They are tiny silver coins with the denomination of Polushka and they were literally made from a piece of silver wire. They date from about 1700 and are a most unusual coin to have in your collection. Hundreds of years old and something your friends would probably never seen before. An actual coin struck from a piece of wire although it is silver wire

Pair of Victoria Club High Value Gambling Chips

This is a pair of very high-value gambling chips from the Victoria Club in Nottingham, England. There are only two chips, but one is for £100 and the other is for £500. To get either of these two, you had to be a high roller. The £100 chip is golden yellow with four security multi-coloured bands around the rim. The £500 chip is pink again with the four security multi-coloured bands around the rim. Remember that these are the actual chips that were used by high rollers. The £500 chip actually cost you £500, admittedly that was when they were current. Both chips have the most impressive building on the back. So if you don’t want to pay £600 for the pair, how about £14.95 At this price, they are a bargain and think how much fun you can have showing them to your friends. Just tell them that you forgot to cash them in…

Canada, Edward VII Large Cent

The Canadian large Cent was only made for three Monarchs, Queen Victoria, Edward VII and George V. After that they went down to a small cent and a few years ago, they stopped making cents completely. We have always had difficulty finding the Edward VII Canadian large cents, but then a parcel came in. The coins are in Very Good – Fine condition and dates will vary, but remember that this series was only made from 1902-1910.
