Everyone has heard of Alexander the Great but most collectors only dream of owning a coin in his name. We have a small group of silver tetradrachms that were struck in his name by the Ptolemaic dynasty in the 3rd Century B.C. On one side you have the head of Herakles wearing a lion’s skin headdress and on the other Alexander’s name ‘AΛEΞANΔPOY’ in Greek script with the seated Zeus holding an eagle and sceptre. These particular coins also have a countermark of an anchor that would have allowed them to circulate in Seleukid lands, three kingdoms for the price of one! They are struck on a large flan, grade About Very Fine with some discolouration from their time spent in the ground, don’t miss out on owning an Alexander the Great Tetradrachm struck in the 3rd Century.
If you are looking for a British coin with Prince Philip – look no further than the £5 and £10 coins issued for their Platinum Wedding in 2007. We are sure that some companies will be issuing medals and coins with Prince Philip’s portrait. We have the Official issues from the Royal Mint which have a very realistic portrait of the Queen and Prince Philip in their older years. These coins are struck in Sterling Silver by the Royal Mint and were issued in 2017. Each coin has been carefully slabbed and graded by the Numismatic Grading Company, a company the Royal Mint has appointed. This keeps finger prints away from coins and also guarantees them. We can offer you this £10 coin, which contains five ounces of silver and was issued at £420 for just £295 again in gleaming Proof condition, saving £125.00!
The Royal Mint has now issued the 2022 coin in their Silver Myths and Legend Series. It is Maid Marian, it has a face value of £2, contains one ounce of pure Silver and is in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition. So now you can either add Maid Marian to your Robin Hood coin or if you haven’t bought Robin you can have him too. We don’t know how many others will be made but we sure hope Friar Tuck will be coming along shortly. Both of these coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and the Maid Marian is an early strike. That means the dies were new and the coins are just that better strike. Most collectors wouldn’t notice the difference, but as we bought them early we know ours are early strikes.
We have obtained some early strikes in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition of the 2022 Silver Britiannia. Each £2 coin contains an ounce of 999 fine silver and is one of the first struck from new fresh dies. In America they charge extra for first strikes, we do NOT charge anything extra for early strikes.
