British East Africa, George VI, Shilling 1948-52 Very Fine

The East Africa Protectorate (also known as British East Africa) was an area in the African Great Lakes stretching from Kenya on the Indian Ocean to Uganda in the west. The East Africa shilling was introduced in 1921 in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanganyika, and later extended to Somaliland and the British Colony of Aden on the Arabian Peninsula. One of the legacies of this decision is that many of these countries still use the shilling as their currency unit. We can now offer you one of these coins minted between 1948 and 1952, showing a crowned King George VI with no Emperor of India title in Very Fine.

United States of America, Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar Various Dates Silver Fine

In 1916 the United States Mint changed over from the Barber Quarter to the Liberty Standing Quarter. Unfortunately, the designer used a more European model of Liberty with one of her breasts exposed. It caused a scandal and uproar. After all, you couldn’t have bare breasts being shown on your coins. After all, no one had ever seen a bare breast, unless they were feeding their child or you had seen classical sculpture or painting or you had … So in 1917 this design was changed and the offending breast was covered up. The Standing Liberty Quarter was issued until 1930. All of our coins are of the non offending kind, mainly because they are better value. All coins are in Fine condition and it is one of America’s most beautiful silver coins. Dates will be of our choice, but all coins are nice examples in Fine condition and struck in .900 fine Silver.
