In 1997 the Royal Mint and the United States Mint got together and both issued Mint Sets to their collectors. We don’t know exactly what happened, but… The Royal Mint sold their left over American Mint Sets to a foreign exchange trader on condition that they break them up. Not to sell them as Mint Sets but just as regular coins. We ended up buying 250 each of the 1997 United States 5 Cents (Jefferson), 25 Cents (Washington) and 50 Cents (Kennedy). We have always felt that they are better struck than the usual circulation coins. But they said no, well they are the best struck coins that we have seen, that were not proofs. Now many years later, We are going to give up trying to prove something we still believe in. So we are selling a mini set of 1995 5c, 25c & 50c as Choice Brilliant Uncirculated coins. They are nice and at £3.95 for the three coins, sold at a very reasonable price...
This is a set for banknote and coin collectors alike. These are miniature bars which represent American banknotes from the $1.00 to the $100.00. The set includes the $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills, a total of seven pieces. Each is a thick bar coated to look like gold and in a rectangular plastic display capsule. Some of them say gold and a weight, but these are only copies, they are NOT gold or the weight listed, they are a miniature replica set, a fun thing to have. They are fantastic and come in a large presentation case marked ‘Bullion Collection’. You get the entire collection of seven replica American banknotes in the handsome presentation case for just £24.50 that is less than £4 a bar. We are not sure if we could make them ourselfs at this price!
In November 1963 President John F. Kennedy was killed in Dallas, Texas. Most of us who are old enough to have been alive at the time remember exactly where we were when we first heard of the killing. Coincraft have issued a unique memento of this man and of his successes. We have kept the price very low in order to make this set accessible to as many collectors as possible. This set is to honour a great man and not to make a lot of money. This collection is only available from Coincraft and it makes an excellent gift to people who remember Kennedy and coin collectors all over the world. There are two unique Kennedy Half Dollars, both legal tender and both capable of being used as real money, rather than the non circulating legal tender coins that most mints issue today. The first is a one year type coin issued for America’s bi-centennial and it is in Proof condition, the finest quality available. The second coin is dated 2013 and was issued to honour the 50th anniversary of his death. The collection also includes a United States Kennedy stamp that has actually been used. The package includes details for what Kennedy did, such as founded the Peace Corps, launched the Moon race and fought for civil rights. There is also a fascinating list of the similarities between the killing of Kennedy and President Lincoln. The collection is priced at just £9.95 and is priced to be given as a gift.
The explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark decided to explore and map parts of America in 1804-6. They met the Lemhi Shoshone woman known as Sacagawea, who even though she had just had a child, agreed to help them. At one point a boat capsized and the journals and records fell into the water. It was Sacagawea who rescued these documents. The island nation of Fiji issued a commemorative Dollar to honour the trio in 2015. It has the 3 standing together and the reverse has the coat of arms of Fiji. It is gold plated copper and in choice Proof condition. The United States also issued a small sized dollar coin, but just to honour the Indian maiden Sacagawea. This is also struck in a yellow metal and in Proof condition. We are offering the Fiji and the American proof dollars as a pair, as it seems best that way. So you get the Proof dollar from Fiji and the proof dollar from the United States.
