Elizabeth II, £10 (Slabbed) 1st 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 us outstanding. In the slab it is a large and handsome presentation piece, I can see them displayed in the slab on your mantle piece. 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!

United States of America, 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 the 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.

United States of America, US Quarter Proof Set, 2003

This was issued as part of one of the most popular series of coins in the world, the United States Quarter set. Fifty quarters over 10 years, representing five States that joined the Union. The coins are in Proof condition in a double-sided display case, they are rather beautiful and interesting. Illinois with Lincoln, Alabama with Helen Keller, Maine with a lighthouse, Missouri with the arch and Arkansas wheat and a diamond. Washington is on the front of each coin with ‘In God We Trust’. This set is most interesting as most people don’t know a lot about the States represented.
