George III, Sixpence 1787 Extremely Fine

These George III Sterling Silver 1787 Sixpences were only struck for circulation for just one year, 1787. What is even more interesting is that they were struck for the Bank of England to give out to their favoured clients around Christmas. You have King George III in an armoured bust on the obverse and four crowns and four shields on the reverse. Today the Royal Mint is charging £95 in Fine. The reverse in some ways is even more interesting than the obverse. As you have the arms of England, Ireland, Scotland, Hanover and France. The coins on offer are very high grade and becoming very difficult to find these days. They are available in Extremely Fine. Remember that this coin is now over 230 years old and in very high quality.

Victoria, Groat, Silver, Very Good

Firstly a Groat is 4 old pence (4d) or 1/60th of a Pound. These have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on them and many were also struck for use in our overseas Colonies, but they were still legal tender and used in this country. You have the youthful portrait of Queen Victoria on one side and a rather beautiful rendition of Britannia seated on the reverse. One of the most underappreciated Victorian coins. They were issued from 1838-1861 and we have them available in Very Good. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and are at least 160 years old. Let’s face it many collectors don’t even know that a Groat was ever issued. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. Please do not ask for specific dates as they will no doubt be the rare dates.

Edward I, Treasure (London) Penny Fine

This is one of the most fantastic Treasure Trove Hoards we have ever bought. On the 10th of May 1877 at Montrave, Fifeshire, Scotland a hoard of King Edward I Silver Pennies was found. The coins are over 700 years old, and the treasure was found over 140 years ago! They were declared and sent to the British Museum for cataloging. This Treasure hoard was found on the land belonging to Mr. Allan Gilmour of Lundin and Montrave over 140 years ago, and collectors now have the chance to own a specimen from this incredible hoard. As supplies are running short we have increased the price of the coins slightly. But it's still British Treasure over 700 years old untouched for more than 140 years. Supplies are limited.
