Spain, 25c (Civil War) 1937 GEF-UNC

Perhaps the man who made the Spanish Civil War famous in the West was Ernest Hemingway. He not only took part in the conflict, but also wrote about it and it was that writing that brought it to our attention. Today Spain is almost on the brink of another Civil War with parts of the country trying to split off and gain independence. This 25 Centavo was issued in 1937, it has a group of arrows tied in a bow on one side and arms of Spain on the other side. Today this coin is 84 years old and in a very high grade. I have graded them Good Extremely Fine , but some dealers would call them uncirculated. I prefer to grade the coin properly so you are happy when it arrives. Another interesting point, is that the coin has a hole in the middle and was actually struck in Vienna! High quality and low prices make an interesting coin even more interesting…

Gadhaiya Paisa

These Billon Silver coins were minted between A.D.1022 and A.D.1135, making them between 900 and1000 years old! They were created in India by those who fled the Islamic expansion and were based on Sassanian coins showing the side facing bust of the monarch on the obverse and a fire altar on the reverse. As time went by, they started to get less and less realistic as the reason for the designs were lost. This means that the coins we have from around 300 years later are very abstract! The stories of Sinbad the Sailor are based on the sea voyages that Arabic peoples made down across the Indian Ocean to Ceylon and these are the coins that the sailors would have found on their journeys. We offer you these Silver Billon coins called Gadhaiya Paisa that were the major trade coins of medieval India. The obverse shows a stylised head facing to the right with the reverse showing a fire altar made from abstract dots and lines. These are priced to please at £19.95.
