France, 3 Coin Set 1917 Extremely Fine

From the late 1800’s 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 1917. 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, 10 pence 1968 Uncirculated

One of the most interesting coins of the Decimal series is the 10 Pence pieces, especially the old large-sized coins. The first Decimal 10p was introduced in 1968, replacing the two shilling coin in preparation for decimalisation in 1971. It features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin on the obverse. Today you get the small-sized 10 Pence in your change, as this large-sized coin has not been made for over 16 years.
