Admiral Gardner 20 Cash

These are fantastic Treasure coins. They were struck in Birmingham for the East India Company and sent to India by ship. Unfortunately, the ship they were on, The Admiral Gardner, sunk on the Goodwin Sands. About 25 years ago it was discovered and salvaged. The coins are copper and dated 1808. Over the last 200 years, many of them corroded especially the 20 (XX) Cash pieces, the smaller 10 (X) Cash coins tend to have weathered the sands better. The 20 Cash seems to be alright on one side and very worn on the other side. British / India Treasure coins at a most reasonable price and with a history that is both tragic and fascinating.

Aurelian Billon Antoninianus _obv

Aurelian Billon Antoninianus GVF

After a long and successful career in the army Aurelian was declared emperor by his troops on the death of Claudius II Gothicus in A.D. 270. His reputation alone defeated his rival Quintillus who committed suicide after his troops deserted. His short, violent five year reign saw the defeat of the rebellious ‘Palmyrene Empire’ in the East and the breakaway ‘Gallic Empire’ in the west, restoring the fractured Roman Empire to its largest size in 15 years. He also began the construction of a great defensive wall around the city of Rome, large sections of which are still standing today. As was common at the time, he died at the hands of his own men in A.D. 275. We offer Billon Antoninianus of Aurelian in Good Very Fine condition showing his radiate bust on the obverse and with various reverses. As always with coins of this period some will have weaker reverses, the first to order will get the best!
