Japan Kanbun Era Cash Coin Very Fine

These 1 Mon cash coins from Japan were the first of a new type to be minted at Kameido, previously a town near Tokyo but now the name only refers to a district and a railway station within Tokyo. The coins themselves date from the Kanbun period between 1661 and 1673 and can be easily identified by the inscription on the reverse side just above the square hole. We have a limited number of these coins in Very Fine condition.

Celtic Bronze Ring Money

These are very interesting pieces from the 3rd to 2nd Century B.C. We bought a dealers entire holding of these beautiful Ring Money. Some people say they could go back as far as 800 B.C. but we believe the dealer, who said ‘they are only 3rd-2nd Century B.C.’. It’s thought they were used as a medium of exchange, before the actual issue of coinage in this area. Their size is approx 12-18mm and have been professionally conserved. PRICE IS FOR ONE PIECE ONLY

George III_Twopence_Cartwheel_1797_Fine_obv

George III, Twopence (Cartwheel) 1797 Fine

How Do You Know it is a Twopence? We were asked this question the other day and the simple answer is, if it weighs two ounces then it is Twopence, if it weighs an ounce then it is a Penny. These coins were only issued for one year: 1797. The public hated them because they weighed so much. This was one of the first coins to be struck under steam pressure on a Boulton and Watt's steam press. Because they are pure copper they nick and scratch very easily. You have the bust of King George III on one side and a seated Britannia on the other side. This product is offered in Fine condition. We give you the best example that we have in stock, but due to the softness of the metal there will be some dings. A great talking piece.

Maria Theresa Thaler (Re-strike) Brilliant Unc_obv

Austria, Maria Theresa Thaler (Re-strike) Brilliant Unc

Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful coins ever struck. It was struck at the Austrian Mint from 1780 until now. The fact is they still strike them today with the 1780 date on them. They are large silver coins that contain about 3/4 of an ounce of pure silver and they are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We have not had these for years, but a lucky buy has put them back into stock.
