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 VI 5 different 5 cents

Canada, George VI 5 different 5 cents

During the reign of King George VI Canada issued five different types of 5 Cent coins, commonly known as nickels. The first type was the round one with the beaver, the second type was 1942 in tombac with the beaver, the third type was the V for Victory in tombac, the fourth was V for Victory in steel and the last was the commemorative for Nickel 1781-1951 in nickel. We can offer a collection of all five types of George VI nickels in Fine or better condition. A wonderful little set and more and more difficult to put together these days. Our agent had to make two trips to Canada to get these sets.

Picture of Ireland, 1968 Mint Set

Ireland, 1968 Mint Set

One of our contacts found a hoard of 1968 Irish pre-Euro Mint Sets. Most of them went back to Ireland and the rest we were allowed to buy. The set comes in a green card holder inside a vinyl wallet. It contains Irish pre-euro coins in Uncirculated condition, but over the past 50 years the coins have mellowed a little. This 1968 Mint Set contains the 1d, 3d, 6d, Shilling and Florin. 1968 is an important set, it is the closest to the changeover to Euro coins. The set comes in a wallet and the coins are Uncirculated but may have mellowed over the years.
