We have just bought a nice group of high-grade King George VI Silver Shillings. These are the last Silver Shillings ever to be made for circulation. They were made between 1937 and 1946 and there are two reverses, one for England and one for Scotland. The Scottish issue (presented here) was made to honour the King’s wife, Elizabeth Bowes Lyon. The coins are in Extremely Fine or better condition, but as we bought them as a lot, we are going to sell them unchecked. Dates will be as they come out of the bag, but the quality will always be high and they are the last type of Shilling ever to be made in silver for general usage.
The island of Haiti has been in the news for all the wrong reasons, hurricane, famine and violence. It takes up half the island the other half is the Dominican Republic.

Not an easy coin to get as they have had so many problems of late.
Another fantastic piece for our growing band of collectors of military medals, or anyone who likes a bargain! We are delighted to be able to offer this Pakistani armed forces Medal from 1991. These are all original and genuine medals – NOT replicas or reproductions! This medal is in very nice collectable condition and comes mounted with the correct ribbon. Now we bought this piece at a very good price, and we are passing the savings on to you, our collectors! At this price they would make great gifts too!
In 1991 the USSR or CCCP as they spell it in Russian, issued a special commemorative One Rouble. It was to honour the 100th birthday of Sergey Prokofiev the Russian composer. You have the bust of Prokofiev on one side and the Russian arms with the Hammer and Sickle on the other side. Of course now Russia is no longer the USSR and thus the coins no longer carry this symbol. These 1 Roubles are in Uncirculated condition, which in many cases is rarer than the proofs. Now it is almost impossible to find USSR coins in Russia, it is something that they would prefer to forget.
The man who makes our sets of European coins pre the Euro, has come up with his best collection yet! He has put together a collection of 19 different pre-Euro Spanish coins. He said he was going to do it and to be honest we didn’t think that he could do it, especially at the price he quoted. He is as good as his word and here they are: 10 Centimos (1), 50 Centimos (1), 1 Peseta (5), 5 Pesetas (10). 10 Pesetas (1) and 25 Pesetas (1). A total of 19 different Spanish coins all in selected circulated condition.
