1935 Large Silver Medal Extremely Fine_obv

1935 Large Silver Medal Extremely Fine

In 1935, King George V celebrated his Silver Jubilee (1910-1935) and the Royal Mint struck silver commemorative medals in two sizes for the event. The medal has the conjoined busts of King George V and Queen Mary on the obverse and on the reverse Windsor Castle is depicted with the motto ‘Stet Fortuna Domus / May the Fortune of the House Endure’. This is available in a high grade of Extremely Fine-Uncirculated but with limited availability.
2nd Century A.D. Limes Denarius_obv

2nd Century A.D. Limes Denarius Fine

‘Limes Denarius’ is an intriguing mystery! They are a base metal or very low silver content Denarius mostly found in the border areas of the empire, especially in Europe. They are generally well made and would have fooled people at the time using plating or a silver wash. But no one knows who made them! One theory is that the state made them pay soldiers on the ‘Limes’ (border forts) of the empire so that if they were raided the enemy would not get lots of silver. Another is that the state could not afford the soldier's pay to go up over successive emperors so it ignored the people making counterfeits, especially on the fringes of the empire. Sadly, until someone studies this in more depth we will not know. We have just bought a small group of theses Limes Denarius showing multiple emperors from the 2nd Century A.D. on the obverse (mostly Marcus Aurelius) with various reverses. They grade Fine, showing a clear portrait and making a most interesting addition to any collection. Were they state-made or by the people who needed them? It is your mystery too now!
Alexander Jannaeus Prutah VF_obv

Alexander Jannaeus Prutah VF

Alexander Jannaeus was a member of the Hasmonean dynasty and ruled Judaea from 103-76 B.C., extending Judaea to its most dominant in antiquity. He did this through clever manoeuvring between the two Ptolemaic powers of Ptolemy IX and Cleopatra III, conquering more land while they fought amongst themselves. He then brutally suppressed a civil war, leaving him the master of Judaea. Interestingly after a period of peace, he left the kingdom to his wife (Salome Alexandra) when he died, not his sons! We have a little group of his bronze Prutah showing crossed cornucopiae on the obverse with ‘Yehonatan the High Priest and the Council of the Jews’ in Paleo-Hebrew within a wreath on the reverse. They are an attractive Very Fine and with not many available I suspect they will sell out fast.
Armenia, Levon I, Silver Tram 1198-1219 Very Fine_obv

Armenia, Levon I, Silver Tram 1198-1219 Very Fine

On 6 January 1198, the Armenian Kingdom was formed when the then Prince Levon (The Lion) II was crowned as King Levon I, King of Cilician Armenia. He became known as ‘Levon the Magnificent’ due to his numerous contributions to political, military, and economic influence. His growing power made him a particularly important ally for the neighbouring crusader state of Antioch. The coinage of King Levon I set the standard for that of following Cilician rulers, comprising coins struck in silver, copper, and bronze and the odd, very rare, gold issue. On these silver Trams, he is shown seated facing on an ornamented throne, holding a cross and fl eur-de-lis with the legend ‘Levon King of the Armenians’ around. The reverse depicts a pair of lions standing back to back flanking a tall cross with the legend ‘By the Will of God’ in Armenian around it. It is in Very Fine condition and is now over 800 years old from a once influential but now long-forgotten kingdom.

Edward IV Penny, Durham Under Bishop Booth, Fair_obv

Edward IV Penny, Durham Under Bishop Booth, Fair

Edward IV ascended the throne at age 18 and was King of England from 1461 to 1483, except for 7 months in 1470-71 when he temporarily lost the throne to Henry VI during the Wars of the Roses. You may know Edward IV was the grandfather of Henry VIII, after his eldest daughter, Elizabeth married Henry VII. However, you may not know that Edward IV is the 15th Great Grandfather to our current King Charles III! Edward IV struck coins at the Tower Mint in London, but he also gave rights to Archbishops to produce coins at mints right across the country – from Durham to Canterbury to Bristol and others in between. The coins we offer are Edward IV Pennies struck at Durham, struck under Bishop Lawrence Booth (1465-1470). Pennies of this period are notoriously difficult to find in decent grade, they were manufactured on small, irregular flans or from crude local dies.
Edward VII Sixpence Fine_obv

Edward VII Sixpence Fine

They struck coins for King Edward VII from 1902 until 1910, a rather short reign. But then again he had to wait for Queen Victoria to pass away and she lived quite a long time. All of his silver coins are struck in Sterling Silver and the most difficult denomination to get is the Sixpence.
Elizabeth II Memorial Quarter Sovereign 2022 BU_obv

Elizabeth II Memorial Quarter Sovereign 2022 BU

The Royal Mint introduced a new denomination of gold coin in 2009, the Quarter Sovereign. Most of these coins have only been issued in Proof but, in 2022, they issued a design that will be used for only one year and it would be the last one to feature the portrait of our late Queen Elizabeth II. They struck them in both Proof and Uncirculated condition and we have managed to obtain a small quantity of the Brilliant Uncirculated 2022 Quarter Sovereign. Each contains 1.997 grams of 22ct Gold. We don’t know the mintage yet, but I believe it to be rather small. One of the country’s largest gold wholesalers has none in stock but we have them for just £155 and at this price they will quickly sell out.
Elizabeth II, £20 Fine Silver, 2015 - Longest Reigning Monarch_obv

The coin comes sealed in the original Royal Mint packaging in Specimen BU condition.

 Gallienus Antoninianus Centaur with rudder GVF_obv

Gallienus Antoninianus Centaur with rudder GVF

Gallienus ruled as sole emperor from A.D. 260-268 during one of the most difficult times in the history of the empire. Not only was the empire facing natural disasters and invasions on all sides but he had to face at least 8 rebellions from his own governors and generals! He issued a fantastic group of bronze Antoniniani coins to honour the Gods, asking for their protection against these troubles. We have sold out of these coins before but we managed to buy a small group of the Centaur holding a globe and rudder. These are designed to honour Apollo, likely in response to plagues and disease, with the rudder and globe usually associated with Fortuna for luck. The coins are Good Very Fine. We only have a few at this price, it is very difficult to source these now!

Gambling Chips Jackpot Collection

Here is a fantastic offer for all your poker and gambling lovers, a selection of 20 different vintage gambling chips from around the world, together with a set of 12 Limited Edition US Gambling Hotshots Chips in a presentation folder each with a numbered certificate.

The pack of 20 different chips are from a range of casinos mostly in the USA and the UK, some with high roller denominations and some obscure ones that we can’t identify but you might be able to. Great collector’s items on their own or gifts for poker-mad friends and family but only 50 of these sets are available with the limited edition Poker Hotshots Presentation folder, so don’t miss out on this great offer. The chips illustrated here will not necessarily be the ones you will receive as they are picked at random from stock.
