The Maldives, Scarce United Nations Crown

The Maldives, a nation of many islands, joined the Royal Mint’s series of crownsized coins to honour the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations in 1996. The Maldives are in jeopardy of disappearing due to the rising oceans, one day they might just not exist. You have the United Nations building in New York with the 50th Anniversary emblem on one side and the arms of the Maldives on the other side. Unfortunately this Royal Mint series really didn’t take off, so today these crownsized Rufiyaa coins are difficult to find. All our coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now some 22 years old.

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence Proof, 1973

In 1973 the Royal Mint issued its first ever commemorative 50 Pence, in fact it is the only large sized 50p that is a commemorative. It was for our joining the European Community, good for some bad for others, but still the first and only large sized 50p commemorative. It was issued in Proof cupronickel only, not silver, not gold, just the same metal as the regular circulating coins. Gosh in those days the Royal Mint wasn't trying to sell every metal in the world. We can offer this commemorative 50p from 1973 in Proof condition. They are now over 45 years old.

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence 50th Anniv of D-Day Uncirculated, 1994

DDAY50P 50th Anniv of D-Day Unc 50 Pence. In 1994 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 50 Pence for the 50th Anniversary of D-Day, one of the most important days in World War II. It was the older large sized 50 Pence and today it is very difficult to find, especially in Uncirculated condition. One of the marketing companies is selling this coin for £11.00, which I think is far too much. True it is difficult to find, but still £11.00 is a lot of money. We have some in stock and are offering it for £6.95, which I believe is a much more realistic and fairer price.
