George III, Cartwheel Twopence Paperweight

We have not had any of these huge King George III 1797 Cartwheel Twopence paperweights for years. They are huge, 12cm / 5 inches in diameter, and are struck in Proof copper. They come in a capsule and are heavy which is what you want from a paperweight. They will look great on your desk, at home or at work. When we originally had them, they sold out quickly. Our supplier told us that if he had to make them today, we would have to charge £79.50 for them! But as many of you know, Richard never lets what a supplier says stop him. He bought them all, so the supplier gave us a good deal! They make fantastic presents, especially at our original price of just £49.50! Get them while you can, once they are gone there will not be any more made, especially at our price of just £49.50 each for these Proof beauties.

Crusader States, Antioch, Bohemond III (1163 -1201), Denier

The First Crusade was declared in 1095 by Pope Urban II and its objective was to provide military support to Byzantine Emperor Alexios I against the Seljuk Turks, as well as reclaiming the "Holy Land" from Muslim rule. The Crusades started around 1095 and continued for nearly 200 years, during that time four different Crusades were made to retake Jerusalem. The Crusades in the Middle East ended when the city of Acre fell in 1291. These silver deniers or pennies were issued in the name of King Bohemond III (1163-1201), who in the summer of 1191, alongside Guy de Lusignan met Richard of England (Lion Heart) during the siege of Acre. Richard was part of the Third Crusade (1189–1192), an attempt by three European monarchs (including Richard of England) to reconquer the Holy Land from Saladin. The coins on offer have a helmeted Crusader Knight on one side wearing chain-mail and were minted in Antioch (modern-day Turkey) which was captured in 1098 during the First Crusade. The legends read BOAMVNDVS on the obverse and ANTIOCHIA on the reverse and they grade Good Very Fine. These coins are now over 800 years old!
