Everyone has heard of Alexander the Great but never has it been easier to own a piece of his empire! Alexander was born in 356 BC and succeeded his father Philip II to the throne at the age of 20. He died in the Palace of Nebuchadnezzar II in Babylon at the age of 32, having created one of the largest empires of the ancient world. His campaigns are legendary! Then and now. We have a small group of his bronze coins in About Very Fine condition. On one side you have the head of Herakles wearing a lion’s skin headdress and on the other side Alexander’s name ‘AΛEΞANΔPOY’ in Greek script with Herakles bow and club on either side. This is because Alexander and his family claimed divine descent from Herakles. At only £95.00 this might be the easiest way to own a coin from one of the most famous of ancient people. The ideal coin to start an ancient coin collection, and a great present for an Alex you may know! Stock availability is limited...

Gallienus. A.D 153-268. Antoninianus Doe_obv

Gallienus. A.D 153-268. Antoninianus Doe

Gallienus ruled as sole emperor from A.D. 260-268 during one of the most difficult times in the history of the empire. Not only was the empire facing natural disasters and invasions on all sides but he had to face at least 8 rebellions from his own governors and generals! He issued a fantastic group of bronze Antoniniani coins to honour the Gods, asking for their protection against these troubles. We are offering the Doe looking behind her, designed to honour Diana, the sister of Apollo and the goddess of the hunt. This was likely to bring luck to hunting and like her brother, for plagues and disease. The coins are Very Fine but because of the chaos at the time remember they may be a little weakly struck. As always the first to order will get the best. We found the last of these coins from the only other time we ran them, once they are sold at this price, no more will be left...

Picture of Elizabeth II, Florin 1967 Brilliant Unc

Elizabeth II, Florin 1967 Brilliant Unc

Elizabeth II, The Last 1967 Florin. Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1967 the Royal Mint issued its last ever Florin for circulation. Although it had an exact decimal equivalent, the 10p, they decided to stop making them. As most collectors know the florin is the most difficult of the denominations to get. We can offer the last ever, the 1967 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for just £4.00. At one time a number of years ago, we had to pay that price to get them. But a fortunate find, in our basement, allows us to offer them to you. Limit of three coins per collector and well worth having.

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.
