George III, 1813 Military Guinea Paperweight

In 1813 they struck the last Guinea ever, it was shortly to be replaced by the Sovereign. They were struck to pay English troops advancing into France and thus called The Military Guinea. This is a beautiful Proof rendition of that last ever ‘Military’ Guinea of 1813. You have the bust of King George III on the obverse wearing a laurel wreath the reverse has a crowned coat of arms. It has been gold plated and comes in a protective capsule. This is the first time that we have been able to offer these large paperweights. They were made years ago and ‘lost’ in our friend’s warehouse until now. They will never be made again and we think they are fantastic.

United States of America, Trump RWB Silver Coloured Medal

We are not going political; we just buy and sell numismatic items. So when we noticed that a number of different crownsized pieces were being struck with the portrait of the American President, Donald Trump, we thought that you might just be interested in them. The quality is good and the prices are right, so we went ahead and bought some of each of the four different types we have seen. The other thing that we have seen is prices from reasonable to outrageous for the same items. No political comments one way or the other, just a dealer buying and selling what might prove to be interesting items and maybe they will cause a discussion or two.

Picture of Italy, 1 Lire 1940 Extremely Fine

Italy, 1 Lire 1940 Extremely Fine

It happened in 1940 that Mussolini declared war on Great Britain; he sided with Hitler and the Japanese and decided he was going to win and take us over. We guess he didn’t win. On this large nickel coin, you have the head of Victor Emanuele III and on the other side, you have an eagle with his wings full spread and an axe behind him. You just don’t get many coins from Italy issued during World War II, especially from the year they declared war on us. We shan’t make jokes about the Italian armed forces, after all, a lot of people died in the battles with them. The coin is large and in Extremely Fine condition and we think it was a fantastic find. We are going to use them in our World War II Remembered Collection that will be coming out later this year. This coin is too important to wait for it, you can own it now.
