Bhutan, 50 Ngultrum Unc (50th Anniversary), 1995

Way up high in the middle of the mountains that include Mount Everest, the small but exotic country of the Kingdom of Bhutan is situated. Intertwined dragons make up its coat of arms and the country is more interested in being happy than in anything else. How it got involved in the Royal Mint’s programme for the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations we will never know, but they sure did. On one side there is a portrait of the late leader of the United Nations, Dag Hammarskjold. The reverse has those intertwined dragons. This is full crownsized, in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and from a country that doesn’t issue a lot of coins, then again this crown was issued in 1995. We think that we are perhaps the only coin firm that has them for sale. We also think you will like our prices, after all, we did buy them some time ago…

Picture of United States of America, Trump 2nd Amendment Medal

United States of America, Trump 2nd Amendment Medal

This Donald Trump piece is rather controversial. The reverse shows two weapons one a rifle and the other what looks like a heavy gun. The legend reads ‘The 2nd Amendment will never be repealed- Donald J. Trump’. This refers to the 2nd Constitutional Amendment in the United States, which allows its citizens to carry arms. It is that law that allows Americans to arm themselves and protect their property. But there is a strong feeling against it, because of all the shootings that happen in the United States. On the obverse you have Trump facing left and the legend ‘Freedom – In God We Trust -2018’. The reverse has two guns. A most controversial piece, while we think that they should have the right to have guns, we think that perhaps some of the larger guns should not be so readily available to almost anyone. This piece is crownsized struck in a Prooflike goldine material and comes in a protective capsule. We will let you make up your own minds, but this piece is likely to cause some rather ‘interesting’ discussions.

Picture of Afghanistan, 50 Afghanis UN 50th

Afghanistan, 50 Afghanis UN 50th

This crown or 50 Afghanis was issued when the war there wasn’t of all that much interest to us. It was issued in 1995 for the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. You have a young man sitting contemplating with birds gathering around him. You have the arms of Afghanistan on the other side with the denomination. In 1995 the Royal Mint issued a collection of crowns for the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, they didn’t sell that well, so they didn’t make all that many of them. We were able to buy up all the remaining coins and all are in Uncirculated condition. A Scarce crown to find and at our price of just £8.95.
