Somalia, 25 Shillings Churchill Millennium Icon

The African nation of Somalia issued a group of crownsized coins to honour famous people. Not every one of them was a hero, but they were famous and well known. For this issue, we can offer Winston Churchill our hero Prime Minister during the Second World War, in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Struck in cupro-nickel you have a portrait on one side and the arms of Somalia on the other side. Each piece is full crownsized and Brilliant Uncirculated condition, getting harder and harder to find.

Picture of Elizabeth II, £5 Queen Mother 90th Birthday, 1990

Elizabeth II, £5 Queen Mother 90th Birthday, 1990

In 1990 the late Queen Mother celebrated her 90th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 piece to honour that event. They also issued a specimen example in an early type of bubble pack, not as fancy as the modern packaging, not as expensive as the modern ones either. You have a crowned cipher on the reverse with the dates 1900-1990 and H. M. the Queen on the obverse. These are still mint sealed, in a smaller package which is easier to store. We found 25 of them in one of the vault rooms and while they last, you can have one for a great price!

Tristan da Cunha, Wartime Churchill Crown

Over the years there have been a number of different countries that had made crownsized coins to honour Winston Churchill. But this is the first time that we've seen this Crown from Tristan da Cunha. It was issued in 2010 and shows him as Wartime Prime Minister. You have his portrait on one side with airplanes flying behind him and the British flag in red, white, and blue. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse and the crown is proof and comes in a protective capsule. We were only able to buy 150 of these, once they are gone, they are gone.

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

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…
