George VI, Proposed Visit Crown, 1949

In 1949 it was proposed that King George VI would visit New Zealand, but it never happened! This was a bit of a problem as the New Zealand Government had gone to the trouble of issuing a Silver Crown! This is the ONLY New Zealand Crown for King George VI. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a Silver Fern on the other. Struck in 500 fine Silver in 1949, it has a mintage of only 200,000 pieces. We can offer the ONLY George VI Silver Crown of New Zealand in Good Extremely Fine condition. It is a very difficult crown to get and this one piece represents a complete type denomination of this Monarch for this country.

George V_Silver_Florin_obv

George V, Silver Florin 1st Type VG-F

As most collectors realize the Florin or Two Shillings is the most difficult denomination to find. The Sterling Silver coinage of King George V was only issued from 1911-1919, so they are even more difficult to find then most. The dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates you will be sent. The coins are in specially selected Very Good - Fine condition and are over 100 years old.

Queen Elizabeth II Ship Visit To Tristan Da Cunha FDC 7 Head Pack

Tristan da Cunha is one of three Atlantic Ocean island nations, ruled by a common British Governor; the other two are St. Helena and Ascension Island. The other two I have visited, but to visit Tristan on the RMS Ship, you have to be healthy enough to climb a rope ladder to get back on board, if the waves get too rough. Something I could not do. But in 1979 the Queen Elizabeth II ship did visit the island, it was the inaugural visit and as far as I know their only visit. Tristan issued a special souvenir sheet of five stamps all depicting ships and it comes in a full-colour booklet filled with information. But there is something even more important. On the back cover, there are the actual signatures of the leaders of the seven families that live on Tristan da Cunha. Oh, didn’t I tell you that only about 275 people live there? This is a unique souvenir sheet of mint stamps, informative booklets, and signatures of the seven families. We are selling it at a very reasonable price too...
