Pair of World War II Medals

The ‚War Medal’ has the crowned bust of King George VI and the green, black and orange ribbon. The second medal is The ‚Defence Medal’ with the bare head of the King and the red, white and blue ribbon. The colours on the Defence Medal ribbons mean quite a lot, we were told as follows: Green is for the green fields of England, Orange represents burning during the Blitz and Black for the German Swastika.

P S Beale £1 Britannia B268 Fine

PS Beale was Chief Cashier from 1949 until 1954. During that period only 3 denominations were issued – the 10 shillings, £1 and £5. The £1 note signed by Beale followed the Britannia design. A vignette of a seated Britannia appears on the front (B268) On the back, running along to top of the note is a view of the façade of The Bank of England Headquarters in Threadneedle Street. Below set in a bed of acanthus leaves we find the Pistrucci reverse of the gold sovereign- the £1 equivalent at the time. We offer the Beale Britannia £1 note here in Fine condition.

Elizabeth II, £5 Silver Proof Golden Jubilee, 2002

In 2002 the Royal Mint issued a crownsized £5.00 to honour the 50th anniversary of Elizabeth becoming Queen Elizabeth II. On one side you have the Queen on horseback and on the other you have a rather stunning portrait of the Queen in a very pensive pose. We have a small number of this handsome Silver Proof £5 complete in capsule. They are beautiful and do justice to our Monarch who has dedicated so much of her life to her country and her people. Don’t miss out, this is a handsome coin.
