2016 was the 80th anniversary of the Year of Three Kings. King George V died, his eldest son Edward became King Edward VIII, he abdicated in December and his younger brother became King George VI. The small island nation of Tristan da Cunha celebrated this historic event a few years early in 2012 with a most attractive and beautiful memento. They have a crown with Queen Elizabeth II on one side and the three Kings of 1936 on the other side, George V, Edward VIII and George VI. These crowns are plated with gold and some of them were also highlighted with Rhodium, one of the most expensive metals ever. We managed to buy a group from one of the dealers that originally bought these crowns and it is the first time that we have seen them, let alone be able to offer them to our collectors.

Each crown is in Proof condition and comes in a collector’s case to protect the coin, while still allowing you to view both sides without having to touch it.

10p 1968 Uncirculated

One of the most interesting coins of the Decimal series is the 10 Pence pieces, especially the old large sized coins. The first Decimal 10p was introduced in 1968, replacing the two shilling coin in preparation for decimalisation in 1971. It features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin on the obverse. Today you get the small sized 10 Pence in your change, as this large sized coin has not been made for over 16 years.

1998 Rank-Broadley 50p BU

1998 Rank-Broadley 50p Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1997 the Royal Mint reduced the size of the 50 Pence piece. In 1998 they introduced a new bust of the Queen for our coinage, it was done by Ian Rank-Broadley. This coin is difficult to get and many collectors are missing it from their collections. We have managed to find a small group in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and now offer them to you. Each coin has the new portrait of the Queen on one side and a seated Britannia on the other. It is the first coin of the new series with the Rank- Broadley bust of the Queen. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and quite difficult to get.
