We bought part of a hoard of choice Persian Silver coins, ones that we had never seen before. The description that we were given when we bought the lot was ‘Persia, Silver 1/8 Qirans (Krans), AH1271-AH1342, 1854-1924, Known as ‘Shahi-e-safid’ or ‘White Sahi’ to distinguish them from the copper Sahis, they were struck not for circulation but as gifts for the New Year celebrations. Mint state or there about’.
They are beautiful little silver coins and in choice condition, they are also priced at a level that we think you will appreciate.

Trans-Dniester Republic, set of 4 coins

The autonomous region called the Trans-Dniester Republic issued a most unusual set of coins in 2014. They are made of a composite material, are semi-transparant and have a textured surface. This was originally part of the Russian Federation but is now ‘independent’. They are a plastic type material but with a hardness that produces a stone like sound when rubbed. They were issued by the Trans-Dniester Republic Bank and there are 4 denominations. 1 Rouble circular, 3 Roubles square with rounded corners, 5 Roubles pentagon shaped with rounded corners and 10 Roubles hexagonal with the rounded corners. They have the rounded corners for ease of use and for ease of machine readability at high speeds. These were an experiment and who knows if they will continue to issue them. But we thought that they were very interesting and rather well priced so we obtained 100 sets of them. Supplies are limited.

India Uncut Sheet 10 Rupees x 4

This Indian banknote is a real treasure, the paper is from World War II, the only time the Germans bombed Scotland! The Bank of England had printed the watermarked paper for King George VI banknotes of India. The paper would be over printed in India and used as money. The watermark shows the portrait of King George VI with the words ‘Reserve Bank of India’ and the denomination ‘Ten Rupees’. These banknote sheets were on the treasure ship for more than 50+ years. We bought the treasure ship that contained all the sheets. There was a great write up in IBNS Journal a few years back. We have had them cut into collectable sheets of four notes, which is a great size for display. Hold a light behind the sheet to see it in all its glory. India, World War II and treasure, what more could you want? We have seen the uncut sheet of 4 Indian banknotes bring £60-£65 each at auction. They probably bought them from us and then put them into auction... You can have them at our price and not the auction price.

Tristan da Cunha, Crown (Lawrence of Arabia) 2010 gold-plated

This Crown was issued in 2010 and it honoured the famous adventurer T. E. Lawrence known as Lawrence of Arabia. They even made a film about him and it won lots of Academy Awards. The gold-plated crown shows Lawrence with a camel behind him. The obverse has a portrait H. M. Queen Elizabeth II. It was issued by Tristan da Cunha and the British Flag is coloured in red, white, and blue. We only managed to get 100 of these and Lawrence is so popular that they might not last long on our website.
