India, East India Company Treasure Coin 1808 Very Good

In 1808 the East India Company had some copper coins struck in Birmingham for use in India. The denomination was Ten Cash which was marked on the coin as X Cash. They were placed in wooden barrels and put on a ship called The Admiral Gardner to sail them to India. This is when the tragedy happened, the ship with all hands on board was sunk in the Goodwin Sands. It lay undiscovered for about 200 years until it was discovered by a crew of treasure hunters and brought up to the surface. Of course, after about 200 years under the sand and sea, the coins had some damage to them. I have graded these coins Grade B, which means that there is some damage to the edges what with all that has happened to them, they are still in very acceptable condition. We have graded them Very Good, Very Fine, and a very few in Extremely Fine. All the coins were professionally cleaned to preserve them. Each coin comes with a certificate of origin. British / Indian Treasure. These coins were purchased about 20 years ago when the Admiral Gardner was found.

Elizabeth II, Brass Threepence Set 1953-1967_obv

Elizabeth II, Brass Threepence Set 1953-1967

The Brass Threepence first came into being at the Coronation of King George VI, the current King's grandfather. His were made from 1937-1952. When he died in 1952 Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II. The Brass Threepence was made under Queen Elizabeth II from the Coronation year 1953 until 1967 when the denomination was no longer made for circulation. The Brass Threepence was an odd-shaped strange metal coin but it is one of the most loved of all our modern denominations. After almost a year of negotiations, we have managed to buy an incredible hoard of complete date sets of Queen Elizabeth II Brass Threepences 1953-1967. The sets include all dates including the scarcer ones. It has been some time since we last able to offer this collection and once these sets are gone, it could be quite sometime if ever. We have not wasted money on some fancy presentation because most of our collectors collect coins and not boxes. It also reduced the price we have to ask for these complete collections. You get 1953 (a one-year-only type coin), 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967. All coins are in selected circulated condition. For now, we are keeping our price for the whole collection at just under £13, but as we sell out, we tend to raise the price for the collections. Get them now at the best price!
