1973  50 Pence EEC Ring of Hands Proof_rev

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (EEC Ring of Hands) 1973 Proof

There has been all this noise about the Brexit coin released recently by the Royal Mint. We are now going to offer you the first Real Brexit Coin. Namely the old large sized 50 Pence that was issued in 1973, some 47 years ago when we joined the European Union. You cannot leave unless you are already a member! This coin is the old large style 50 Pence and it depicted 9 hands of the European Community holding each other in a circle. Far fewer members, far easier to get things done. This original First Real Brexit Coin was struck in cupro-nickel in both Uncirculated and Proof condition. They are a lot more difficult to find than the new Brexit coin and are of course 47 years old and to be honest perhaps cheaper.

Aurelian Billon Antoninianus _obv

Aurelian Billon Antoninianus GVF

After a long and successful career in the army Aurelian was declared emperor by his troops on the death of Claudius II Gothicus in A.D. 270. His reputation alone defeated his rival Quintillus who committed suicide after his troops deserted. His short, violent five year reign saw the defeat of the rebellious ‘Palmyrene Empire’ in the East and the breakaway ‘Gallic Empire’ in the west, restoring the fractured Roman Empire to its largest size in 15 years. He also began the construction of a great defensive wall around the city of Rome, large sections of which are still standing today. As was common at the time, he died at the hands of his own men in A.D. 275. We offer Billon Antoninianus of Aurelian in Good Very Fine condition showing his radiate bust on the obverse and with various reverses. As always with coins of this period some will have weaker reverses, the first to order will get the best!

Picture of Edward VII Small Coronation Medallion EF

Edward VII Small Coronation Medallion EF

In 1902 Edward VII was finally crowned King, after the death of his Mother, Queen Victoria. He had waited a long time for this to happen and it almost didn’t as he had an appendicitis attack and the Coronation had to be postponed. In those days, people died of appendicitis. The Royal Mint issued a rather handsome small Official Silver medallion to honour the Coronation in 1902. It had King Edward VII’s bust on one side and his Queen, Alexandra’s bust on the other side. They are in a very contemporary design and are struck in Sterling Silver. He was a very popular King and these sold quite quickly from the Royal Mint. We can offer them in Extremely Fine. Remember that they are now 116 years old!

Picture of Victoria, Double Florin 1887-1890 Extremely Fine

Victoria, Double Florin 1887-1890 Extremely Fine

When Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee in 1887, she not only allowed them to change her portrait but also to issue a new denomination. That was the Double Florin which was equivalent to Four Shillings. It was almost crownsized and struck in Sterling Silver. Today we have an equivalent coin, but we call it a 20 Pence. Shows what time and inflation will do to money. The Double Florin was also known as the Bar-Maids ruin. After she had had a few drinks, the bar-maid would often give change for a Crown and not a Double Florin. That Shilling difference was a lot of money and came directly from the Bar-Maids wages. This Double Florin was only made from 1887-1890. In the past we have offered the Queen Victoria Double Florin in Fine and even in Very Fine, now we can offer them in Extremely Fine condition. These are super coins and most are dated 1887, remember they are struck in Sterling Silver and they have the Jubilee Head portrait of the Queen.
