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.

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence Rank-Broadley Brilliant Uncirculated, 1998

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.

Elizabeth II, Coronation Crown, 1953 Unc

It is now 65 years since Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II. I have been privileged to visit Tree Tops where they have a plaque commemorating the place that Elizabeth first became Queen. This is the first Queen Elizabeth II Crown, this is the Coronation Crown, and this is the first coin to be issued for our Monarch. It shows the Queen riding on her horse and the design was much more unusual than anything issued before it. Despite being 65 years old and the first coin of our Monarch, the prices are still very reasonable, or at least our prices are. I have seen one of the marketing companies charging £30 for one and they don’t even give you the grade. We are offering these in Uncirculated.
