USA Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar Various Dates Silver Fine

In 1916 the United States Mint changed over from the Barber Quarter to the Liberty Standing Quarter. Unfortunately the designer used a more European model of Liberty with one of her breasts exposed. It caused a scandal and uproar. After all, you couldn’t have bare breasts being shown on your coins. After all, no one had ever seen a bare breast, unless they were feeding their child or you had seen classical sculpture or painting or you had … So in 1917 this design was changed and the offending breast was covered up. The Standing Liberty Quarter was issued until 1930. All of our coins are of the non offending kind, mainly because they are better value. All coins are in Fine condition and it is one of America’s most beautiful silver coins. Dates will be of our choice, but all coins are nice examples in Fine condition and struck in .900 fine Silver.

US Indian Head Cent

Traditionally people referred to this coin an Indian Head Cent, but today with political correctness, we should be calling it the Native American Cent. This coin was issued in America from 1864-1909, the coins on offer are all the later dates and in Very Good condition. This coin was replaced by the Lincoln cent in 1909. Dates will be of our choice, but there are no rare dates represented.

5 US State Quarters in case

The United States issued a set of 50 different quarters (25c) to honour each of their 50 states. The coins are legal tender and were actually meant to be used in everyday usage. We bought a most unusual group of these coins recently. There are five different coins all in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and housed in a plastic holder showing both obverse and reverse. There is no logic as to which coins are in each holder, just that there are five different and all are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We bought them right and we are going to sell them right. The series started in 1999 and ended in 2008. Supplies are limited and the holder on its own usually sells for £2.95.

1919: the last Sterling Silver Threepence

In 1919 the Royal Mint issued the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence for circulation. The next year, 1920, they reduced the silver content in our coins from 925 fine silver to 500 fine silver. King George V was on the Throne and World War I was just over, the economy needed the extra income from less silver in our coinage. We can offer the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence in Fine condition for just £8.50. It shows what inflation does to our money, today there is no silver in our coins just cupro-nickel and even the smallest coins are only copper plated steel.
