Picture of Elizabeth II, Crown (Coronation) 1953 Choice BU

Elizabeth II, Crown (Coronation) 1953 Choice BU

This is the first Queen Elizabeth II Crown, this is the Coronation Crown, and this is the first coin to be issued for our Monarch. It shows the Queen riding on her horse and the design was much more unusual than anything issued before it. Despite being 65 years old and the first coin of our Monarch, the prices are still very reasonable, or at least our prices are. I have seen one of the marketing companies charging £30 for one and they don’t even give you the grade. We are offering these in Choice Uncirculated.
Kolophon Horseman Very Fine

Ionia, Kolophon, Ca. 330–285 B.C. AE14 'Apollo & Horseman' Very Fine

Pausanias tells us Kolophon was one of the earliest Greek settlements, founded on the Ionian coast about 1000 B.C. It was based eight miles from the sea and faced East, unlike most Ionian cities, to take advantage of the fertile plain of the Kaystros. This meant instead of trading with passing ships their main product was horses, which they were also experts at riding. They were so proud of this the reverse of their bronze coins shows a horseman galloping with a lance, while the obverse depicts their principle god, Apollo. The coins were made between Ca. 330-285 B.C. The city flourished until the end of this period when the old general of Alexander the Great, Lysimachos, forced nearly all the occupants to leave so he could bolster populations on the coast. This meant the quality of the coins plummeted until the Romans arrived 300 years later. This makes these the last of the beautiful classic coins from this city for a price we think you will agree is most pleasing. Here we offer this coin in Very Fine condition. Not many in stock...

Septimius Severus Silver Denarius Very Fine

Septimius Severus was Roman Emperor from AD 193-211. In AD 208 he travelled to Britain to strengthen Hadrian’s Wall and went on to invade Scotland that same year but his plans were cut short when he became ill and died in York in AD 211. We have a few silver denarius in Very Fine Condition minted during his reign. There are different types but all have his portrait on the obverse, and usually a standing or seated figure on the reverse. PHOTOGRAPH IS REPRESENTATIVE OF COIN SUPPLIED.
