Elizabeth II, Silver Proof Pound, 1983

The non-gold pound coin was first issued in 1983. What many collectors don’t realise is that the Arnold Machin bust of the Queen was struck for only two years, 1983 and 1984. Thus not only was it the first issue but also the shortest and most difficult to get. The Royal Mint issued special editions for collectors in Proof Sterling Silver in both the normal thickness and in double thickness or Piedfort. Offered here is the 1983 issue in Proof. It comes in Sterling Silver and in a protective capsule. A very short mintage and now getting rather difficult to get.

Picture of Canada, George V Large & Small Cents

Canada, George V Large & Small Cents

Governments worldwide are issuing more and more paper money; they call it QE or Quantitative Easing. We call it making our money worth less and less and if you really need an example, how about Germany in the early 1920s? At that time money became of so little value that someone saw a basket of banknotes, they left the notes and stole the basket! In Canada, during the reign of King George V, we have an excellent example of what inflation can do. We have the Canadian Large Cent of King George V, issued 1911-1920. Then in 1920 they reduced the size greatly and kept this smaller size until 1936. We offer the Large and Small-sized 'Penny' or One Cent coins of King George V, so you can show your friends what inflation can do to coins. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen here… Large size cent issued from 1911-1920 and the small cent issued from 1920-1936
