Afghanistan, 50 Afghanis UN 50th

This crown or 50 Afghanis was issued when the war there wasn’t of all that much interest to us. It was issued in 1995 for the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. You have a young man sitting contemplating with birds gathering around him. You have the arms of Afghanistan on the other side with the denomination. In 1995 the Royal Mint issued a collection of crowns for the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, they didn’t sell that well, so they didn’t make all that many of them. We were able to buy up all the remaining coins and all are in Uncirculated condition. A Scarce crown to find and at our price of just £8.95.

Picture of United States of America, Trump 2nd Amendment Medal

United States of America, Trump 2nd Amendment Medal

This Donald Trump piece is rather controversial. The reverse shows two weapons one a rifle and the other what looks like a heavy gun. The legend reads ‘The 2nd Amendment will never be repealed- Donald J. Trump’. This refers to the 2nd Constitutional Amendment in the United States, which allows its citizens to carry arms. It is that law that allows Americans to arm themselves and protect their property. But there is a strong feeling against it, because of all the shootings that happen in the United States. On the obverse you have Trump facing left and the legend ‘Freedom – In God We Trust -2018’. The reverse has two guns. A most controversial piece, while we think that they should have the right to have guns, we think that perhaps some of the larger guns should not be so readily available to almost anyone. This piece is crownsized struck in a Prooflike goldine material and comes in a protective capsule. We will let you make up your own minds, but this piece is likely to cause some rather ‘interesting’ discussions.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Sixpence Uncirculated, 1957

Elizabeth II, Sixpence Uncirculated, 1957

This is a strange coin; when I moved to London in 1968 this coin cost more in real terms than it does now. Everyone was trying to put together a set of pre-decimal coins in uncirculated condition and this is one of the coins that caused a little bit of trouble. Everyone puts away the first year of a new design and especially if it is a Coronation year (1953). The second year less are put away and as time goes on fewer and fewer are put away, until it gets very difficult to find uncirculated examples of some dates. We bought a small group of 1957 Queen Elizabeth II Sixpences in uncirculated condition. Not a rare coin, but one that is difficult to find if you need one. They are very inexpensive at just £3.95; they actually cost more in 1968 than I am charging now.
