George VI, Festival of Britain Crown and Stamps (Original Box), 1951

George VI 1951, Festival of Britain Crown and Stamps. In 1951 this country was going off the rationing that had been in force since World War II. The country rejoiced and children could again have sweets and the family, meat. If they could afford it. The Government held a festival on the South Bank called the Festival of Britain. To honour the King, they issued only the second Crown from his reign. Unlike the Coronation issue which was in silver, this Festival of Britain Crown was struck in cupro-nickel. They are Uncirculated and came in a cardboard box which didn’t survive as well as the coin it was protecting. They also issued two stamps for the Festival. We are offering you the 1951 Festival of Britain Crown in the original box of issue plus both mint unused stamps issued for the Festival. Today they are 66 years old and well worth having…

Cuba, 1 Peso 1984 (Castillo el Morro) CN

One of the many series that Cuba has issued over the years is a series of one Peso coins depicting different Castles. The one on offer is for Castle Morro and it was struck in 1984. It is low mintage and in Uncirculated condition. Unfortunately, we cannot sell them to any American collectors, as it is illegal at this time to export them to America. You have the Castle on one side with a key below the castle, the other side has the arms of Cuba and the denomination. Not an easy coin to find, it is now over 30 years old and you won’t find them in America.
