At that time everyone thought the new European currency was going to be called Ecus and not Euros and these coins were privately issued to show what the new designs might look like, they were highly collected. We have bought out the last of the group that was struck in 1992. These pieces can never be struck again.

One one side they have the Three Graces and on the other side they have a globe with a map of Europe with allegorical figures at the sides.

George III GB Incurrupta Patina Cupro-nickel

This is a Patina or retro-pattern to show what something might have looked like, had it been issued at the time. These are privately minted to the highest quality and are full crownsized 38mm. This is the George III pattern Crown issued with a large head of George III and an inscription that has caused it to be known as the Incorrupta Pattern. It is struck in Prooflike cupro-nickel to the highest standard. Because we bought these years ago, we can offer them at what seems almost a crazy low price. If they were made today, they would cost a heck of a lot more money.

British Trade Dollar 1998 Blank

The British Trade Dollar was originally made in the late 1800’s to compete with the Mexican 8 Reales which was being used heavily in commerce in the Far East. The Trade Dollar was made periodically until the 1930’s. About 20 years ago, someone asked the Royal Mint to make new dies with the then current date 1998. The Mint did make them and then some sort of problem occurred. The person who had the dies made, had the ‘coins’ struck elsewhere and with a full colour commemorative sticker on the back. At the time, we bought a couple of hundred of the Prooflike crownsized pieces with a blank reverse, figuring to use them sometime. Well we just found them the other day and I have decided to offer them with the blank reverse. You could add a sticker or even engrave something, it is up to you. These are the only examples around that we know of.
