New Stock July 2021

So the Euros are over and England once again lost on penalties... Well, life goes on. But one thing is certain this was a team that made history in the tournament, and we hope, a team that will continue making history in the next UEFA tournaments. They are a group to be proud of, no doubt. 

And we know a little bit about history ourselves since we sell numismatic items, many of which can certainly tell you something about the time period in which they were made. 

We have a few important historical items on this new upload, scroll down to see them all.

Constantius II Bronze Very Fine Soldier_obv

Constantius II Bronze Very Fine Soldier spearing fallen horseman

Continuing our series of the famous Constantinian Dynasty we offer Constantius II, the last surviving son of Constantine the Great. Constantius II was born in A.D. 317 and named after his grandfather, the Tetrach Constantius I, who came to Britain and died at York. After Constantine the Great died in A.D. 337 Constantius II shared the rule of the empire with his two brothers. After a 13 years of tension Constantius II emerged as the sole ruler of the Roman Empire. He was involved in many wars throughout his reign, putting down rebellions and defending the empire against invaders. He died in A.D. 361 on the way to fight another rival, who became his successor, Julian II. These bronze coins offered here in Very Fine have the reverse design of a Roman soldier spearing a fallen horseman with the obverse showing a profile bust of Constantius II. We have offered different types of Constantius II before, check your collection as we suspect you will not have this reverse from this interesting and successful ruler.

Edward VII, Type Set Farthing to Halfcrown

King Edward VII had one of the shortest reigns of modern times, 1901-1910. As was the tradition no coins were made until his Coronation in 1902. We can offer the Farthing, Halfpenny, Penny, Silver Threepence, Sixpence, Shilling, Florin and Halfcrown in Very Good condition. The dates may vary but all the silver coins are struck in Sterling Silver. The coins come in envelopes and all coins will be Very Good condition, but dates will vary within the set, that’s why they are called type sets!

Picture of Elizabeth II, £5 Platinum Wedding Piedfort 2017

Elizabeth II, £5 Platinum Wedding Piedfort 2017

In 2017 the Queen and Prince Philip celebrated their Platinum Wedding Anniversary, 1947-2017. To honour this most important event the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 coin in Proof, Sterling Silver. For their VIP Collectors, they also issued this coin in double thickness Sterling Silver called a Piedfort. This coin has the Queen on horseback and was sold by the Mint at £155.00. The first 500 were sold to a marketing company in the United States. They had them protectively slabbed and graded, this one is 70 out of 70 just as perfect as you can get. The label records both the grade and the fact that it is one of the first 500 pieces struck. But what they haven’t played up is the reverse of the coin. It portrays the Queen and Prince Philip in a close-up conjoined portrait after 60 years of marriage. Royal Mint issue price £155.00 plus at least £15.00 extra for slabbing it, but instead of costing you £170.00, it can be yours for just £110.00! The portrait alone is worth the cost…

 2018 50 Pence (Paddington Bear at the Palace) Silver Proof _obv

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (Paddington Bear at the Palace) 2018 Silver Proof

In 2018 the Royal Mint issued two 50 Pence pieces to honour Paddington Bear. We have been able to buy both of these coins in Proof Sterling Silver. This one is Paddington Bear at Buckingham Palace, where the Queen lives. Paddington is in full colour waving a British flag in front of Buckingham Palace. It is stuck in Proof Sterling Silver and comes in a heavy and fully clear Perspex display case inside a yellow presentation box. We believe the issue price was £67.50. This lot was bought right and we are going to sell it right, just £49.50 that is a saving of £18.00 on the Royal Mint issue price. And yes they are complete with all packaging, the certificate and leaflet. The only difference is that you save £18.00 a coin.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Half Sovereign 2007 BU

Elizabeth II, Half Sovereign 2007 BU

Of all the modern British gold on the market, the most underappreciated is the Queen Elizabeth II Half Sovereign in Uncirculated. Yes, we said Uncirculated and not Proof. The Proof coins were all saved by collectors, the Brilliant Uncirculated coins were just not put away. We have bought a nice group of Brilliant Uncirculated examples. Try and find them elsewhere and you will see what we mean about them being underappreciated and not saved for collectors. Each coin is struck in 22ct Gold by the Royal Mint and is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, but supplies are limited.
