Finland, 1st Free 25 Pennia Unc

Finland was under Russian rule from about 1809 on, and it was not until 1917 that it gained its independence. We have some of the first coins to be issued by Finland as a Free country. These 1917 25 Pennia look just like the coins issued by Russia for Finland, with one little change. If you look on the side with the double-headed eagle you will notice, for the first time, that the Russian crown is no longer evident between the eagles two heads. This removal of the crown celebrated Finland’s freedom and independence. These Silver 25 Pennia coins dated 1917 are in Uncirculated condition and are now 100 years old. A rather nice and historically important coin and in Uncirculated condition.

Finland, (Free of Russian Occupation) 25 Penna Unc

What most people don’t know is that Finland only became a free and independent country in 1917. Before then it was under the control of Russia. Here we present the 25 Penna issued by Finland as a free nation. The difference was, under Russian rule, it had a double-headed eagle with a crown on the coin. The same coin was then issued by a Free Finland without the crown on the double-headed eagle. The coin is struck in silver, it is over 100 years and it's in Extremely Fine or better condition. Finland was only able to gain its freedom because Russia itself was caught in the middle of a revolution. A fantastic high-grade silver coin issued after Finland became an independent nation. Add it to your collection!

Picture of Elizabeth II, Coranation Crown Choice BU, 1953

Elizabeth II, Coranation Crown Choice BU, 1953

This is the first Queen Elizabeth II Crown, this is the Coronation Crown, and this is the first coin to be issued for our Monarch. It shows the Queen riding on her horse and the design was much more unusual than anything issued before it. Despite being 65 years old and the first coin of our Monarch, the prices are still very reasonable, or at least our prices are. I have seen one of the marketing companies charging £30 for one and they don’t even give you the grade. We are offering these in Choice Uncirculated.
