Victoria, Shilling 1887 Choice Uncirculated

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 shilling in choice uncirculated grade.

Picture of Romania, Wartime Silver 500 Lei

Romania, Wartime Silver 500 Lei

During World War II Romania issued this silver 500 Lei for just one year 1944. Well in fact the last coins they issued was in 1947. King Mihai I is on the obverse with the crowned coat of arms on the reverse. It is most unusual to have silver coins struck during the War. These large silver coins are in Extremely Fine condition but someone has wiped them so there are faint hairlines showing. They still look nice, but the average collector wouldn’t see the difference. World War II, silver, only issued for one year and in nice condition, what more could you want?

Picture of Elizabeth II, Red Leather Deluxe Proof Set Special, 1997

Elizabeth II, Red Leather Deluxe Proof Set Special, 1997

The 1997 Proof Set is a heck of a Proof Set. It contains 10 coins and boy are there some interesting ones included. Most importantly this is the Deluxe Set in the case of issue. You get the 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p large 50p, small 50p, English £1, £2 (the first of the bimetallic issue), £5 issued for the 50th wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip. It is a crowded set which also includes the Official Royal Mint dated medallion. We bought a nice group of these sets and we are going to offer them at what we think is a good price. Some dealers are breaking the sets up and charging far more for the single coin. You can own this 10 coin 1997 Proof Set for just £49.50, which I think is a bargain price.

Picture of George V, Rare Threepence, 1925

George V, Rare Threepence, 1925

We don’t know what happened in 1925, but almost all of the coins seem to be Rare and difficult to find. This is the early design of King George V Silver Threepences with the crowned value on the reverse. They are struck in 500 fine Silver and the coins on offer are in Fine or better condition. The only date of this type that is Rarer is the 1926 with the crowned value. You have the bare head of the King on one side and the Crowned value ‘3’ on the other side. This is an important and Rare date and the first time we have had enough to offer them, but supplies are still short and if you want one, please get in quickly…
