1977 Jubilee Lundy Set

In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee, 1952-1977. She actually visited the small island of Lundy as part of her year-long celebration. Today it is a wildlife reserve with very few actual people living there. The first coins said to be struck on Lundy were in the reign of King Charles I.

You get a local souvenir sheet of 6 stamps issued for local usage and a Puffin and Half Puffin based on the famous 1928 token issue of Martin Coles Harman. The Government objected to these penny and half penny sized tokens at the time and actually took Mr. Harman to court. The House of Lords found him guilty in 1931, and he was fined £5 with fifteen guineas expenses. The coins were withdrawn and became collectors' items.

The stamps are in mint unused condition and the copper tokens are in choice Proof condition. The whole thing is in a descriptive folder and only 1,977 of these sets were ever issued. They are exclusive to Coincraft, but there are just 1,977 souvenir sheets and tokens ever to be issued.

In 1965 the Franklin mint issued a double pair of these tokens dated 1965. Today they are highly collected, as so few Lundy pieces are available to collectors.

Floating Display Case

We bought these some time ago, but due to lack of space, we asked the dealer we bought them from to store them for us. He recently asked if we still wanted them? As we had already paid for them, we said yes and now you can own one of these fantastic display pieces at a lot less than is being asked elsewhere. You can take one or more coins or any other collectable, put it in this frame and it will appear to be floating in space. When we first saw it, it blew us away. This is the answer to displaying your coins or other collectables without damaging them. Using it is quite simple: you open the case, position your items where you want them, close the case and there they are – floating in space. If you want to replace the items, all you have to do is open the case, take the items out and replace them with a new coin. These were originally made to sell for £19.95, but the manufacturer never got around to advertising them. We bought them right, as is our plan, if we buy right we sell right. The outer case measures 13 x13 cm and the inner surface measures 10 x10 cm. Once you have seen one you will want to buy some. Remember, they are not just for coins you can display stamps, buttons, curios just about anything that you want.
