Australia, George V Silver Set

Australia did not have its own silver coins until King Edward VII and then that was for only one year: 1910. It wasn’t until 1911 that silver coins were struck under King George V on a regular basis. It has taken us two years to put these type sets. As they are type sets, the dates within each set will vary, but they were all struck between 1911-1936 and they were all struck in good Silver. The coins are Threepence, Sixpence, Shilling, and Florin all George V and all silver. The coins will grade Very Good and are in collectable condition. Please remember that we have very limited stock available.

Canada, Newfoundland, George VI, 3 Coin Set

We have put together a nice three-coin type set of the King George VI coins from Newfoundland. Of course, Newfoundland is now part of Canada, but since the time of Queen Victoria, they have issued their own coinage. Because the population of Newfoundland is so small, the mintages on these coins are also rather small and it is a country that no longer issues its own coins. You get the bronze Penny plus the Silver 5 Cents and the 10 Cents of King George VI, all issued under the name of Newfoundland. The coins are in Fine or better condition and we think the three coins make a nice type collection of their coinage. They don’t make coins of Newfoundland any more, but we have the set for your collection. The history behind the coins is most interesting and so are the coins themselves.

Vatican, 2 Lire (Holy Year) 1958 Brilliant Unc_obv

Vatican, 2 Lire (Holy Year) 1958 Brilliant Unc

Citta del Vaticano, or Vatican City, issued its own coins up until 2002 when it adopted the Euro. These Aluminium 2 Lire coins (KM.50) were issued in the name of Pope Pius XII in 1958 and were the last of their type issued since he died in October 1958. The coins are low mintage with only 30,000 being struck. They have the crowned shield on the obverse and on the reverse the figure of Fortitude standing with a lion at his feet. Even better, they come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now nearly 65 years old and rather difficult to find.
