One the most popular series that we offer are the King George III crownsized Patinas. After all none of these were issued at the time and if you want something of George III from that country, these are all you have!

They are full crownsized (38mm) struck in Prooflike cupronickel and have the George III bust as used on the Bank of England Dollar of 1804 on the obverse and the elephant on the reverse, alovely design.

These are, of course, retro-dated to 1808. You won’t find better value anywhere.

Picture of Canada, George V Large & Small Cents

Canada, George V Large & Small Cents

Governments worldwide are issuing more and more paper money; they call it QE or Quantitative Easing. We call it making our money worth less and less and if you really need an example, how about Germany in the early 1920s? At that time money became of so little value that someone saw a basket of banknotes, they left the notes and stole the basket! In Canada, during the reign of King George V, we have an excellent example of what inflation can do. We have the Canadian Large Cent of King George V, issued 1911-1920. Then in 1920 they reduced the size greatly and kept this smaller size until 1936. We offer the Large and Small-sized 'Penny' or One Cent coins of King George V, so you can show your friends what inflation can do to coins. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen here… Large size cent issued from 1911-1920 and the small cent issued from 1920-1936

Picture of Cuba, 1 Peso 1984 (Castillo el Morro) CN

Cuba, 1 Peso 1984 (Castillo el Morro) CN

One of the many series that Cuba has issued over the years is a series of one Peso coins depicting different Castles. The one on offer is for Castle Morro and it was struck in 1984. It is low mintage and in Uncirculated condition. Unfortunately, we cannot sell them to any American collectors, as it is illegal at this time to export them to America. You have the Castle on one side with a key below the castle, the other side has the arms of Cuba and the denomination. Not an easy coin to find, it is now over 30 years old and you won’t find them in America.
