Set of 3 60th Anniversary End of WWII Silver Crowns from Ascencion, St Helena & Falklands

Here are three different silver proof crowns issued in 2005 for the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II. Each coin has H.M. the Queen on them, so they were official sanctioned by the Palace. It is just that none of them are listed in the catalogues as yet. They were part of the large lot of silver proof crowns that we recently purchased. Only 29 pieces of each in the hoard, so they must be rare. They have red, white and blue banners on the reverse depicting people who were happy that the War was over. You have the Falkland Islands showing a family waving flags, St. Helena with a child hugging her returning serviceman father and Ascension Islands with children dancing in a circle. As there are only 29 pieces of each we are only going to offer the collection as a collection of three different silver proof crowns. Today the Royal Mint charges in excess of £80 each for similar crowns, so our price of £115 for the set of three is less than half the price that you might expect to pay. But please remember only 29 sets available.

Victoria, Penny (Young Head) Copper Fine

The copper Penny of Queen Victoria was issued between 1839 and 1860. It was a nice chunky copper coin, that was replaced by the thinner bronze Penny in 1860. We have this coin available in Fine, a grade that is better than they usually come. Because this coin was of such small value it tends to come up for sale in very used well circulated quality. These copper pennies are above average quality.

Elizabeth II, 10 pence 1968 Unc

One of the most interesting coins of the Decimal series is the 10 Pence pieces, especially the old large-sized coins. The first Decimal 10p was introduced in 1968, replacing the two shilling coin in preparation for decimalisation in 1971. It features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin on the obverse. Today you get the small-sized 10 Pence in your change, as this large-sized coin has not been made for over 16 years.
