Constantine The Great, Centenionalis Mint State_obv

Constantine The Great, Centenionalis Mint State

Josh bought an incredible group of Roman bronze coins. What is outstanding about this group is their condition. They are in a splendid mint state, really outstanding condition. Josh has been selling Fine and Very Fine examples in the past but these coins are Mint State, even he was amazed! Even if you don’t collect Roman coins, at our special price and the fantastic condition the coins are in, you shouldn't really miss out on the offer. Each coin comes with a history of that Emperor and a certificate of authenticity. We have three different Emperors on offer, here we present Constantine the Great. These bronze coins are about 1,700 years old and in Mint condition! The quality is most impressive, as are our prices all things considered. The denomination is Centenionalis, we sometimes call them ‘Cent’ for short. Please don’t miss out on this Special Offer, we highly recommend it and supplies are limited...

Andrew Bailey Historical £50 B404 Unc_obv

Andrew Bailey Historical £50 B404 Unc

Given we now have a new polymer £50 in circulation, we thought that now might be a good time to look back at the paper issues of the £50 first introduced in 1994. The design was chosen to mark the 300th Anniversary of the bank’s founding in 1694. The portrait of the first Governor of the Bank of England, Sir John Houblon, appears on the back. His tenure is remembered today in the uniform of the bank’s gatekeepers which was based on the livery of Sir John Houblon’s own staff. A vignette of an early gatekeeper and a view of the façade of Houblon’s house in Threadneedle Street also features. The Houblon £50 on offer have with the signature of Andrew Bailey who, it so happens, is the current Bank of England Governor (B404)
