St. Thomas & Prince Scarce Crown

In 1985St. Thomas & Prince issued a cupro-nickel crown or 100 Dobras to honour their 10th anniversary of Independence. It is a small and fascinating island, however, getting coins or banknotes from there is almost impossible. Two banknote dealers who went there were put in jail accused of money laundering. So this Crown is even more interesting and important. I think it is the first crown we have had from St. Thomas & Prince. You have an outline picture of the island on one side and the coat of arms on the reverse with two birds holding it up. A most unusual and difficult crown to find, in fact, most of this country's coins are difficult to obtain...

Solomon Islands Elizabeth II Collection

The Solomon Islands is a group of South Pacific islands, but their coins still carry the Queen’s portrait. The coins are dated between 1996-2012 and many of the coins are no longer available due to the high cost of minting them. You get 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Cents plus the 1 & 2 Dollars. Each coin has the Queen’s portrait and each coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Not an easy place to get coins from, in fact not an easy place to get to in any case. A friend went there and therefore we are able to offer you this fantastic set of 8 different Brilliant Uncirculated coins. But we don’t have all that many, so if you want one, please get in quickly…

Tristan da Cunha, Christopher Columbus

Columbus discovered more than just America, he discovered the Caribbean Islands as well. This beautiful diamond-shaped Crown from Tristan da Cunha does him great justice. Christopher with wide tricorn hat, sailing ship to his right and ships wheel above is on one side and H.M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the other side. Each coin is in Proof condition and is heavily silver plated to gleam. Then it is put into a diamond shaped plastic display case to help preserve it. Now you can own a most unusual and interesting coin of that great explorer Christopher Columbus for a very competitive price: we doubt that any would be issued today at such a reasonable price.

Tristan da Cunha, 70th Anniversary Battle of Britain Crown

In 2010 the world celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, one of our most important victories during World War II. ‘TDC’ or Tristan da Cunha honoured this event by issuing a rather attractive and important Crown. You have H.M. the Queen on the obverse and a battle scene on the reverse. There are three airplanes fighting it out in the sky over Britain, to the left is a full colour British Flag, enamelled. This crown sized piece has been gold plated, struck in proof condition and then placed in a protective capsule to protect the finish of the coin. As our supply is not all that great, it could be the last time we can offer them. Beautiful and priced to please most collectors, but supplies are limited.
