France, 3 Coin Set 1916 Extremely Fine

From the late 1800s until about 1920 the French issued a beautiful set of coins 1/2 Franc to the 2 Francs. It had a woman sowing grain and we guess was based on the paintings of Millet. We've managed to put together date sets of the three silver denominations, Half Franc, One Franc, and Two Francs. This set is dated 1916. All sets contain matching dates and the coins are in Extremely Fine or better condition. They are still toned, as we have not touched them. But we do believe these are some of the most attractive coins that France has issued in modern times. Supplies are extremely limited and we think they are beautiful.

Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Wedding Crown) 1972 Proof Sterling Silver

In 1972 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 25 Pence or Crown for the Queen & Prince Phillip’s 25th Wedding Anniversary. What most people don’t realise is that there were three different types issued. You have the base metal or cupronickel Crown that was issued in Uncirculated theoretically for circulation and the Sterling Silver Proof issued for collectors, but you also have a third type issued. This is the cupronickel Proof which came in the 1972 Proof Set. The type offered here is the Sterling Silver Proof. It is a simple design with EP for Elizabeth and Phillip on one side and the Queen’s portrait on the other side. It is also the first decimal crown or 25 Pence to be struck for the Queen.

501 Different World Coins

We never thought we would ever see these yellow bags of 501 different world coins again. Over 40 years ago we sold them and they sold quickly. Even then, to put 501 different world coins together was a most impressive task. Our friend David at Educational Coin Co. found 300 of these collections that he had put away over 40 years ago and had forgotten. You have to remember he has over 300 million coins and banknotes in stock. We have known him for a very long time and nothing surprises us about him or his company. These are the most fantastic world coin collections that you can ever find, after all 40+ years ago what was common is now very difficult to find. Most of the coins are circulated but many are Uncirculated condition. Just some of the coins included are: Timor, Cambodia, East Germany, Viet-Nam, French Polynesia, Qatar, French Somalia, Netherlands East Indies, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Hong Kong, St. Thomas & Prince, Ireland, South Arabia, San Marino, Uganda, Chile, Fiji, Malaya, Panama, East Africa, Kuwait, India, Mexico, Great Britain, and many many more. 501 different coins, some Uncirculated some circulated, but all put together over forty (40) years ago. We are going to offer the entire collection in the imprinted yellow bag imprinted ‘Seven-Seas Treasure Collection’ from all over the world and all through the ages’ for only £195; that is less than 40 pence a coin. We think these collections are fantastic; what was available more than 40 years ago is just not available now. Please do not miss out.

Elizabeth II, £1 (Welsh Pound) 2000 Proof Sterling Silver

In the year 2000 we saw something that most people will never see, not the change from one Century to another Century, but the change over from one Millennium to another Millennium. From dates that started 19—to ones that started 20—. The Royal Mint as usual issued a Sterling Silver version of the Pound coins for VIP collectors. It had a beautiful rendition of the Welsh Dragon and is one of the most beautiful of the Pound designs. Of course this size and composition of the Pound coin has already changed...
