Elizabeth II, Mint Set (Churchill) 1965 Unc

In 1965 the Royal Mint issued only the second coin in its long history to honour a non-Royal. The first time was in 1658 for Oliver Cromwell. This is the complete set of coins issued in 1965, 1/2d, 1d, brass 3d, 6d, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Florin, Halfcrown and Churchill Crown. All coins are dated 1965 and all coins are in Uncirculated condition. Next year will be the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Winston Churchill and no doubt there will great interest from collectors and the public alike. The set comes in an early Sandhill display case, the case is not perfect, after all it is now 58 years old, but the coins are. We just found them in one of our vault rooms but less than 50 sets available.

United States of America, Standing Liberty Quarter Dollar Various Dates Silver Fine

In 1916 the United States Mint changed over from the Barber Quarter to the Liberty Standing Quarter. Unfortunately, the designer used a more European model of Liberty with one of her breasts exposed. It caused a scandal and uproar. After all, you couldn’t have bare breasts being shown on your coins. After all, no one had ever seen a bare breast, unless they were feeding their child or you had seen classical sculpture or painting or you had … So in 1917 this design was changed and the offending breast was covered up. The Standing Liberty Quarter was issued until 1930. All of our coins are of the non offending kind, mainly because they are better value. All coins are in Fine condition and it is one of America’s most beautiful silver coins. Dates will be of our choice, but all coins are nice examples in Fine condition and struck in .900 fine Silver.
