Bag of 10 South African Farthings

We don’t know where it came from we don’t know when we bought it or even how much we paid for it, but all that said it is there. It contains George VI and Queen Elizabeth II Farthings and has never been sorted for better Dates or varieties. It is just how we bought them… We are going to have one of the staff members who doesn’t handle the coins, to just count them out into packages of 10 coins, come what may. We have had a quick look and they look much nicer than we would have expected let’s call them selected circulated. So you get a bag of 10 South African Farthings totally unchecked. After all the South African Farthing is not a coin you will see everyday.

Vatican, 2 Lire (Holy Year) 1958 Brilliant Unc_obv

Vatican, 2 Lire (Holy Year) 1958 Brilliant Unc

Citta del Vaticano, or Vatican City, issued its own coins up until 2002 when it adopted the Euro. These Aluminium 2 Lire coins (KM.50) were issued in the name of Pope Pius XII in 1958 and were the last of their type issued since he died in October 1958. The coins are low mintage with only 30,000 being struck. They have the crowned shield on the obverse and on the reverse the figure of Fortitude standing with a lion at his feet. Even better, they come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now nearly 65 years old and rather difficult to find.

Sweden, World War II & Later Coin Set_obv

Sweden, World War II & Later Coin Set

In 1942, during World War II Sweden change the metal content of its smallest coins. That is the 1, 2 and 5 Ore were now made in steel? During the War you used whatever metal was most readily available and of the least use elsewhere. They liked this new coinage so well that they carried on making them until 1950. So some of the coins will be struck during the War and some shortly afterwards. We think it is a most interesting set and that they carried on using them after the War. The set of three coins are in Very Fine condition and now at least 70 years old.
