G E A Kentfield Historical £20 Enhanced B375 Unc

G E A Kentfield Historical £20 Enhanced B375 Unc

The Bank of England introduced a new Historical Series of banknotes in 1992. The distinguishing feature was the portraits of historical figures featured on the backs. On the back of the £20 note was a portrait of scientist Michael Faraday who is shown alongside a vignette of him giving the Christmas Lecture he gave at the Royal Institution in 1856 together with a vignette of a magneto-electric spark apparatus. We offer Crisp Uncirculated examples of the Faraday £20 with Graham Kentfield’s signature. (B375) This variety was introduced in 1994, with the small crown seen in earlier varieties replaced with the denomination symbols of £20. Crisp Uncirculated.

Crusader States_Antioch_Bohemond III_(1163 -1201)_Denier_obv

Crusader States, Antioch, Bohemond III (1163 -1201), Denier

The First Crusade was declared in 1095 by Pope Urban II and its objective was to provide military support to Byzantine Emperor Alexios I against the Seljuk Turks, as well as reclaiming the "Holy Land" from Muslim rule. The Crusades started around 1095 and continued for nearly 200 years, during that time four different Crusades were made to retake Jerusalem. The Crusades in the Middle East ended when the city of Acre fell in 1291. These silver deniers or pennies were issued in the name of King Bohemond III (1163-1201), who in the summer of 1191, alongside Guy de Lusignan met Richard of England (Lion Heart) during the siege of Acre. Richard was part of the Third Crusade (1189–1192), an attempt by three European monarchs (including Richard of England) to reconquer the Holy Land from Saladin. The coins on offer have a helmeted Crusader Knight on one side wearing chain-mail and were minted in Antioch (modern-day Turkey) which was captured in 1098 during the First Crusade. The legends read BOAMVNDVS on the obverse and ANTIOCHIA on the reverse and they grade Good Very Fine. These coins are from the 'Roupen' hoard and are now over 800 years old!

Picture of Elizabeth II, £2 Pair of Big Ben 2017 Silver Proofs Cased

Elizabeth II, £2 Pair of Big Ben 2017 Silver Proofs Cased

In 2017 the Royal Mint issued a £2 coin that contained one ounce of Pure Silver. We know because we sold the Uncirculated pieces. We thought that was all there was... But recently we bought from an overseas distributor, not one piece in Proof condition, but a pair of Proof pieces in their original Royal Mint case of issue. One coin is in Brilliant Proof and the other is in Reverse Proof condition. The mintage for the pair is only 800 pieces in each finish. We have never seen this set before and we're not even sure if it was ever even for sale in this country. Normally you would expect to pay £125-£150 for each of these two coins or £250-£300 for the pair. A fantastic chance to add this very low mintage pair of Silver Proofs to your collection at a much more interesting price. You get both silver Proof Big Ben £2 coins, one in Brilliant Proof, and the other in Reverse Proof. The pair is sold with its Royal Mint case for just £165.00
