SKU: FUS2050

The Ike Dollar was made for two purposes, one to honour the late President and World War II General, Dwight David Eisenhower and two to help out the Las Vegas casinos. The helping out Las Vegas was so they would have a large dollar size coins for use in their slot machines.
The coins on offer are all 1978, struck at the San Francisco Mint and all carry the ‘S’ mintmark. You have the large portrait of Ike on one side and an American Bald Eagle landing on the Moon on other side.
They are struck in Proof cupro-nickel and are large and beautiful. It is the largest dollar coin struck for actual circulation since the 1930’s. We used to charge £19.95 for this coin, but a fortunate purchase allows us to offer them for just £14.50, a saving of £5.45.

Russian 1989 Rouble

This coin was issued under Russia when it was the USSR, it is the largest denomination that was actually used every day as money. It is dated 1989 and it is dated both on the reverse and on the edge of the coin. You have the hammer and sickle on one side and the denomination on the other side. The current catalogue price is $30.00 in mint state 60 and there is no price for this coin in mint state 63, which they are. It is a scarce coin, in much better condition than they usually come. We bought them right, so we are going to sell them right. Uncirculated it catalogues at £22.70. A tough coin to get, especially so choice.

Maria Theresa Thaler BU

Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful coins ever struck. It was struck at the Austrian Mint from 1780 until now. The fact is they still strike them today with the 1780 date on them. They are large silver coins that contain about 3/4 of an ounce of pure silver and they are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We have not had these for years, but a lucky buy has put them back into stock. But not at our original price of £28.50. A beautiful large silver coin, considered one of the most beautiful ever struck and at a £10.00 savings.

Wartime Churchill Crown

Over the years there have been a number of different countries that had made crownsized coins to honour Winston Churchill. But this is the first time that we've seen this Crown from Tristan da Cunha. It was issued in 2010 and shows him as Wartime Prime Minister. You have his portrait on one side with airplanes flying behind him and the British flag in red, white and blue. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse and the crown is proof and comes in a protective capsule. We were only able to buy 150 of these, once they are gone, they are gone.
