Maldives, 1/2 Larin 18-19th Century

Many of you have been to the Maldives on holiday, but I’ll bet you have never seen this coin. It is a 1/2 Larin issued at the end of the 1700’s beginning of the 1800’s. It has Arabic writing on both sides, they converted to Islam by the 13th Century. The condition is Good Very Fine and they are a wonderful small coin, one that we have never offered before. We would guess that most people who live in the Maldives have never even seen one, let alone owned one. Supplies are limited and it is the first time that we have been able to offer it for sale.

Admiral Gardner 20 Cash

These are fantastic Treasure coins. They were struck in Birmingham for the East India Company and sent to India by ship. Unfortunately, the ship they were on, The Admiral Gardner, sunk on the Goodwin Sands. About 25 years ago it was discovered and salvaged. The coins are copper and dated 1808. Over the last 200 years, many of them corroded especially the 20 (XX) Cash pieces, the smaller 10 (X) Cash coins tend to have weathered the sands better. The 20 Cash seems to be alright on one side and very worn on the other side. British / India Treasure coins at a most reasonable price and with a history that is both tragic and fascinating.

Victoria, Farthing (Old Head) VG-F

In our opinion, the Old Head or Widow Head but of Queen Victoria is the most underappreciated of the three different busts made during her reign. Here we offer the Old Head Farthing in VG-F. Dates will be of our choice.
