Henry_III_Silver_Penny_Canterbury_Mint_Obv

Henry III, Penny (Canterbury) Silver Very Fine

In the reign of King Henry III, the only coin that was made was a Silver Penny. Some of these coins were cut in half or in quarters to make Halfpennies and Farthings, but the Silver Penny was the only coin actually issued. The newest of these coins is almost 750 years old. You have the crowned facing portrait of Henry on the obverse and a cross on the reverse. These Silver Pennies we have on offer were struck in the city of Canterbury, which we think makes them even more interesting. Each coin was struck by hand one at a time. The coins on offer are in Very Fine condition, which is quite a high grade for this English Silver coin. Supplies are limited and we know you will love owning this 750-year-old Silver Penny.

£10 (Slabbed) 1st Britannia

Elizabeth II, £10 (Slabbed) 1st £10 Britannia 2013

In 2013 the Royal Mint issued its first-ever £10 Silver Britannia, a huge 5-ounce coin. Britannia is shown wearing a Corinthian Helmet holding an owl on her knee, it is the symbol of intelligence. She is sitting on a chair holding a trident, but there is one little problem. She is dressed or partially dressed in an old-fashioned way. That means that one of her breasts has been left exposed. The Ian Rank-Broadley bust of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse. The first release of this large silver coin was sold to a marketing company in the United States, which had them slabbed. This preserves the coin from getting fingerprints, authenticates the coin, and grades it. They graded the coins (£10 face value) as being Proof 69 out of 70 and better yet they are Ultra Cameo, which is about as good as you can get. The quality is outstanding. In the slab it is a large and handsome presentation piece, we can see them displayed in the slab on your mantlepiece. Anyone who sees it will be impressed, how could they not? A huge beautiful Britannia in silver in an impressive display case and the price is right. Originally sold by the Royal Mint at £420.00. Coincraft’s price is just £295.00 which saves you £125.00!
