Picture of George VI Collection

George VI Collection

We all admired the excellent award-winning movie, ‘The King’s Speech’ in 2010 which showed King George VI’s determination and strength. Now you can own original coins from the reign of George VI issued from 1937-1952, a Coronation Stamp issued in 1937 and a banknote issued just after World War II. You’ll receive the coins that were actually used during George VI’s reign: the bronze Farthing, Halfpenny and Penny, plus the brass Threepence, Silver Threepence and cupronickel Sixpence, Shilling, Florin and Half Crown. These are original, genuine coins and were actually used as money in the reign of King George VI. You also get an Uncirculated British Armed Forces 2nd series Pound issued by Command of the Army Council in 1948. To top it off, you get a Mint stamp issued in 1937 for George VI’s Coronation, issued and overprinted for use in British Morocco. This collection is exclusive to Coincraft.

Provincial Bank Ireland £1 September 1926 DUBLIN P346b Unissued Hole Cancelled H Prefix

Provincial Bank Ireland £1 September 1926 DUBLIN P346b Unissued Hole Cancelled H Prefix

After 1929 The Provincial Bank of Ireland Limited had to change all its banknotes from payable in Dublin to payable in Belfast. This was because Ireland was now an independent nation and different from Northern Ireland which was a part of Great Britain. These crisp Uncirculated notes are dated 1926 and payable in Dublin so they had to be destroyed. They drilled holes in them to show they were no longer payable and legal tender. A few years ago a small group of them were found and they sold for over £100 each. We finally tracked down the owner and bought all that they had left. Remember these £1 notes are almost 100 years old and in crisp Uncirculated condition, they are just beautiful. The catalogue price is £75.00 but when Coincraft – Britain’s Coin Shop buys right, we sell right. So you can add one of these Rare Irish 1926 Pounds to your collection for just £39.50.

Falkand Islands, 50 Pence (History of British Coins Charles II Guinea) 2001_rev

Falkand Islands, 50 Pence (History of British Coins - Charles II Guinea) 2001

Charles II ruled from 1660-1685. This 2001 silver proof 50 Pence from the Falkland Islands has a replica of his Gold Guinea on it. Guinea is gold plated so that it can stand out. The mintage was very low and our collectors on the Falklands had never even seen one. But they not only issued it in Proof Sterling Silver but in Piedfort or double the normal thickness in Proof Sterling Silver. We bought them from the man who had them struck and all he could say was that the mintage was very low. Today a silver piedfort from the Royal Mint costs £155, these are much lower mintage and much lower price. Supplies are very limited!

Cilician Armenia, Levon I (1198-1219), AR Tram  Extremely Fine_obv

Cilician Armenia, Levon I (1198-1219), AR Tram Extremely Fine

On 6 January 1198, the Armenian Kingdom was formed when the then Prince Levon (The Lion) II was crowned as King Levon I, King of Cilician Armenia. He became known as ‘Levon the Magnificent’ due to his numerous contributions to political, military, and economic influence. His growing power made him a particularly important ally for the neighbouring crusader state of Antioch. The coinage of King Levon I set the standard for that of following Cilician rulers, comprising coins struck in silver, copper, and bronze and the odd, very rare, gold issue. On these silver Trams he is shown seated facing on an ornamented throne, holding a cross and fleur-de-lis with the legend ‘Levon King of the Armenians’ around. The reverse depicts a pair of lions standing back to back flanking a tall cross with the legend ‘By the Will of God’ in Armenian around. These are nice grade silver coins available in Extremely Fine condition, and are now over 800 years old, from a once-influential but now long-forgotten kingdom.
