Edward II, Penny (Long Cross) London/Canterbury Fine

Edward II also called Edward of Caernarfon, was King of England from 1307 until he was deposed in January 1327. Following the death of his father Edward “Longshanks”, Edward succeeded to the throne in 1307. The “Long Cross Penny” was the largest coin of the period and those of Edward II closely resemble those of his father. He adopted the same bust and legend. It takes a trained eye to spot differences in the lettering and the King's crown to spot a genuine Edward II. The pennies on offer here come in “Fine”. They are from London or Canterbury Mints, depending on availability. You have the crowned bust of the King on one side, under the name of Edward I. On the reverse you have CIVI TAS LONDON or CIVI TAS CANTOR, meaning “City of London (or Canterbury)”. This is the first time we have accumulated enough Edward II Pennies to offer you in almost three years, so get one while you can.

Russia, 5 Roubles (St. Petersburg Palace) 1990 Unc

Russia, 5 Roubles 1990, St. Petersburg Palace, Uncirculated. Russian commemoratives in Uncirculated condition are more difficult to find for collectors than Proofs. The Proofs were exported as a source of hard currency and therefore were put away, the Uncirculated coins were meant to circulate and most of them did just that. We have a number of the Russian 5 rouble commemorative coins, issued in 1990 featuring St. Petersburg Palace, issued under the USSR in Uncirculated condition. I ask you to seriously consider these. They are more difficult to find than the Proof coins and is now over 27 years old.

Russia (USSR), 5 Roubles (Archangel Michael Cathedral) 1991 Unc

It is most unusual to have a Russian commemorative 5 Rouble in Uncirculated condition, as most of the coins we see are in Proof. This is a coin that was actually struck for circulation and real usage, not one for collectors only. It is a 5 Rouble issued under the USSR or Russia, in 1991 for the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael in Moscow. You have the Cathedral on one side and the hammer and sickle with CCCP or USSR, as we know it, on the other side. These 5 Roubles are almost crownsized and when they were issued you were not allowed to take them out of the country.
