Tristan da Cunha, Diamond Coronation Crown

The Portuguese explorer Tristão da Cunha was born in 1460 and died in 1540. At one time he was King Manuel I’s ambassador to the Vatican under Pope Leo X. But he is best known for his antics in the Middle East and India. When in his wanderings he found a group of islands in the South Atlantic, although the weather was too rough to get off his ship, he claimed them and named one after himself. Now that island Tristan da Cunha has issued a crown to honour their discoverer. It is diamond shaped and has H.M. Queen Elizabeth II on one side and Tristão on the other side with sailing ship and wheel. This is heavily silver plated and struck in Proof condition. It also comes in a diamond shaped protective capsule. If you name an island after yourself, why not have a coin made for you?

3 South Pacific Part Colour Coins

We bought 100 sets of these three coins, because we wanted to support these two countries in trying something new, part colouring their coins. They are commemorative coins with a partial colourizing. Solomon Islands $2, 2018 with Queen Elizabeth II for their 40th Anniversary of Independence. Papua New Guinea, 50T 2008 for 35th anniversary of Bank of Papua New Guinea, 50T 2015 XV Pacific Games Port Moresby. Most unusual and the first I have ever seen, I was only able to get 100 sets of three coins, so only 100 lucky collectors…
