Bronze Antoninianus from the Normanby Hoard Very Fine

This hoard of 47,912 Third century A.D. bronze Antoniniani is one of the largest ever found in Britain. It was discovered by a metal detectorist in December 1985 in the parish of Normanby, about twelve miles north of Lincoln. The hoard was delivered to the British Museum for cleaning and study and was the subject of a Treasure Inquest on 19 May 1987, where it was found not to be Treasure Trove, in view of the low silver content of the coins, and consequently became the property of the land owner. The hoard was immediately sold by the owner to a coin dealer and has been gradually dispersed in the trade. We have been fortunate to acquire a small number of coins from this hoard. The coins were largely struck between A.D. 253 and 287 and are mostly of the emperors Gallienus, Claudius, Victorinus, and Tetricus I and II and grade Very Fine. The selection of coins from this hoard will be of our choice, but if you order more than one coin, we will try to provide you with different coins featuring the portraits of different emperors.

Picture of Victoria, Florin (Jubilee Head) Fine

Victoria, Florin (Jubilee Head) Fine

Queen Victoria finally consented to a change of the design of her portrait on the coinage of the United Kingdom in 1887. For the previous 50 years, all of her coins had the Young Head portrait, showing the Queen when she was a 17-year-old girl. The Florin as a coin had only been in existence since 1849. We can offer the Jubilee Head Sterling Silver Florins of Queen Victoria issued 1887-1892 in two different grades. Dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you. On one side you have the Jubilee Head bust of the Queen with a rather silly small-sized crown on her head. The other side has four coats of arms. All of these Jubilee Head Florins are struck in Sterling Silver and they are, despite what Victoria thought, rather attractive. We can offer them here in Fine, they are nice collectable examples.
