These Ten (X) Cash coins were struck in 1808 for the East India Company (EIC) for use in India. They were struck in Birmingham, England and then were to be sent by ship to India and this is where the problem started. The ship they were sent on sank on the Goodwin Sands, unfortunately all hands on board were lost and the ship stayed there until about 20 years ago when it was re-discovered.
We recently bought from one of the divers, his choice of Ten (X) Cash coins that he personally brought up with his own hands. Because they were submerged for almost 200 years most of the coins are in a remarkably high state of preservation.  Own a real piece of British / Indian Treasure coin for far less than you might expect to pay. These are a wonderful conversation piece as well as true treasure coins and a great item to show your friends.

Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Trans-Dniester Republic, set of 4 coins

The autonomous region called the Trans-Dniester Republic issued a most unusual set of coins in 2014. They are made of a composite material, are semi-transparant and have a textured surface. This was originally part of the Russian Federation but is now ‘independent’. They are a plastic type material but with a hardness that produces a stone like sound when rubbed. They were issued by the Trans-Dniester Republic Bank and there are 4 denominations. 1 Rouble circular, 3 Roubles square with rounded corners, 5 Roubles pentagon shaped with rounded corners and 10 Roubles hexagonal with the rounded corners. They have the rounded corners for ease of use and for ease of machine readability at high speeds. These were an experiment and who knows if they will continue to issue them. But we thought that they were very interesting and rather well priced so we obtained 100 sets of them. Supplies are limited.
