Anne, Shilling Very Good

Queen Anne was the last monarch of the Stuart dynasty. Following 17 pregnancies, only one survived infancy and none were able to succeed her. She was also the first sovereign of the Kingdom of Great Britain, following the Union of England and Scotland in 1707. Before the Union, England, Scotland, Ireland and France (yes France, not Wales!), the shillings of Anne had reverses with shields depicting each of the four countries. After the Union the shield designs were changed - two shields showed the conjoined designs of England and Scotland. The Union represented a new dawn in British history, and one that is still argued over ‘til this very day. We're delighted to offer you a small group of inexpensive Shillings from Queen Anne from both the London and Edinburgh mint, the choice will be ours. They were well circulated but clearly show the queen and date, but details will be worn, dates will be of our choice but are between 1707 and 1711.

Gordian III Nicaea Bronze AE18/19 Very Fine_obv

Gordian III Nicaea Bronze AE18/19 Very Fine

Born in 225 A.D, Gordian III became Roman Emperor at the age of 13, reigning from 238 to 244 AD. His ascension followed the chaotic Year of the Six Emperors. Despite his youth, Gordian III faced major challenges such as the Sassanian Empire’s incursions. Tragically, Gordian III died under suspicious circumstances at the age of 19, sparking speculation about possible foul play in the imperial court. These coins were struck in the ancient Bithynian city of Nicaea (now İznik, Turkey) which is famous for the council of Nicaea in 325 A.D by Constantine I which formed the basis for Christianity today. The coins have the legends in Greek with the bust of Gordian III on the obverse and three to four army standards on the reverse with the legend N-I-K-AI-EWN (Nicaea) between the standards.

St George & The Dragon Uniface Crown

These are crownsized blanks ready to be struck for a Commonwealth crown. You have St.George and the dragon on one side and blank reverse within a circle of stars.

We don’t who they were prepared for and which country was going to use them but think they are rather interesting and reasonably priced.
