Alexander the Great Silver Tetradrachm 3rd Century B.C. Countermarked

Everyone has heard of Alexander the Great but most collectors only dream of owning a coin in his name. We have a small group of silver tetradrachms that were struck in his name by the Ptolemaic dynasty in the 3rd Century B.C. On one side you have the head of Herakles wearing a lion’s skin headdress and on the other Alexander’s name ‘AΛEΞANΔPOY’ in Greek script with the seated Zeus holding an eagle and sceptre. These particular coins also have a countermark of an anchor that would have allowed them to circulate in Seleukid lands, three kingdoms for the price of one! They are struck on a large flan, grade About Very Fine with some discolouration from their time spent in the ground, don’t miss out on owning an Alexander the Great Tetradrachm struck in the 3rd Century.

Picture of Elizabeth II, £5 (Platinum Wedding Anniversary) Piedfort 2017 Slabbed Proof 69

Elizabeth II, £5 (Platinum Wedding Anniversary) Piedfort 2017 Slabbed Proof 69

In 2017 the Queen and Prince Philip celebrated their Platinum Wedding Anniversary, 1947-2017. To honour this most important event the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 coin in Proof, Sterling Silver. For their VIP Collectors, they also issued this coin in double thickness Sterling Silver called a Piedfort. This coin has the Queen on horseback and was sold by the Mint at £155.00. The first 500 were sold to a marketing company in the United States. They had them protectively slabbed and graded, this one is 70 out of 70 just as perfect as you can get. The label records both the grade and the fact that it is one of the first 500 pieces struck. But what they haven’t played up is the reverse of the coin. It portrays the Queen and Prince Philip in a close-up conjoined portrait after 60 years of marriage. Royal Mint issue price £155.00 plus at least £15.00 extra for slabbing it, but instead of costing you £170.00, it can be yours for just £110.00! The portrait alone is worth the cost…

Elizabeth II, £2 (Maid Marian) 2022 1 Oz Silver Brilliant Unc

The Royal Mint has now issued the 2022 coin in their Silver Myths and Legend Series. It is Maid Marian, it has a face value of £2, contains one ounce of pure Silver and is in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition. So now you can either add Maid Marian to your Robin Hood coin or if you haven’t bought Robin you can have him too. We don’t know how many others will be made but we sure hope Friar Tuck will be coming along shortly. Both of these coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and the Maid Marian is an early strike. That means the dies were new and the coins are just that better strike. Most collectors wouldn’t notice the difference, but as we bought them early we know ours are early strikes.
