South Africa, 1952 Crown UNC

In 1952 King George VI passed away. South Africa issued as special commemorative crown before he died, their first commemorative. It was for the 300th Anniversary of the founding of South Africa. You have the bust of King George VI on one side and a three masted sailing ship ca 1652 on the other side. It is impossible to buy any of these coins in South Africa. The lower grades were melted when silver was high and the high grade examples have all been exported to collectors overseas. We were lucky enough to buy a small group in this country in uncirculated condition. Remember this is a silver crown, the last silver crown or otherwise of King George VI and the first commemorative crown of South Africa.

World War I Penny Collection 1914-1918

One of our competitors is offering a set of World War I Pennies 1914-1918. Yes, their set comes in a smart case, but they are charging £79.50 for the collection... Also, the coins they illustrated were cleaned, I guess they think that improves their appearance, but it actually depreciates their worth. Our coins are average circulated just as theirs are, but ours are natural, we have not cleaned them. We do not supply a case, on the other hand, our set is priced at £9.50 and theirs is priced at £79.50. We will not name the other company, but if you really must know, just call us and we will tell you. We did not want to shame them any more than their price of £79.50 shames them already. We have just 100 sets left and with all the interest in the First World War, as this year is the 101th anniversary of its end, they should sell quickly. Especially at nearly £70 less than the other company…
