This coin is from one of the most fantastic Treasure Trove Hoards we have ever bought. On the 10th of May 1877 at Montrave, Fifeshire, Scotland a hoard of King Edward I Silver Pennies was found. The coins are about 700 years old and the treasure was found 141 years ago! They were declared and sent to the British Museum for cataloguing. This Treasure hoard was found on the land belonging to Mr Allan Gilmour of Lundin and Montrave. Now for the first time in 141 years, collectors have the chance to own a specimen from this incredible hoard. We are offering this Edward I London Penny with a certificate at the same price we would charge for a normal Edward I Penny. But we do retain the right to raise the prices, as supplies run short. Supplies are limited.
In 2019 The Royal Mint allowed British Gold Sovereigns to be struck in India, with an ‘I’ mint mark. The last Monarch to allow this was King George V in 1918. The Mint has packaged them with a certificate calling them Bullion but they are certainly Specimens that look much like proofs. They are housed in nice official display cases. The coin is sealed in a card which is also its guarantee from the Royal Mint that it is genuine and of the same standard as a British Sovereign. It is the first time that we have seen them in the Royal Mint package, the coins were made in India. You have a current gold coin with the Queen’s portrait with the Indian mint mark. We have never seen them like this before. We bought all that the dealer had for sale, it was a good price, so you have a good price, that way everyone is happy.
Here is a fantastic Special Offer for you on the difficult to find 2019 Royal Mint Gold Proof Sovereign. These coins are complete in their original, never opened, Royal Mint case of issue with the certificate of authenticity from the Royal Mint.
Fantastic Collection of the last 5 Crowns Ever In 1981 the Royal Mint issued its last British Crown ever. They are issuing crown-sized coins today, but they have a nominal face value of £5 and they are certainly NOT crowns. The last Five Crowns ever were, Churchill Crown 1965, Silver Wedding Crown 1972, Silver Jubilee Crown 1977, Queen Mother’s 80th Birthday Crown and Charles & Diana’s Wedding Crown 1981. Remember the first crown-sized coin of five shillings was issued in 1551 by King Edward VI and the last one was in 1981. We have had a fantastic package made to display the last five crowns and it is exclusive to Coincraft. These sets make excellent gifts for family, friends and business associates. One marketing company is selling the 1977 Crown on its own for £9.95, so our price of just £24.95 for all five crowns is very reasonable.
We all admired the excellent award-winning movie, ‘The King’s Speech’ in 2010 which showed King George VI’s determination and strength. Now you can own original coins from the reign of George VI issued from 1937-1952, a Coronation Stamp issued in 1937 and a banknote issued just after World War II. You’ll receive the coins that were actually used during George VI’s reign: the bronze Farthing, Halfpenny and Penny, plus the brass Threepence, Silver Threepence and cupronickel Sixpence, Shilling, Florin and Half Crown. These are original, genuine coins and were actually used as money in the reign of King George VI. You also get an Uncirculated British Armed Forces 2nd series Pound issued by Command of the Army Council in 1948. To top it off, you get a Mint stamp issued in 1937 for George VI’s Coronation, issued and overprinted for use in British Morocco. This collection is exclusive to Coincraft. The entire collection comes in a presentation wallet loaded with interesting and historic information.
In 1947 the Royal Mint took out all Silver from our coinage and used cupronickel instead. They still made two types of Shillings each year, with an English reverse and a Scottish reverse. This short series 1947-1951 has some very interesting aspects about them. The 1947 and 1948 issue had one legend, and then when India got independence they had to change the legend again. NO Shillings were struck for circulation in 1952 as the King died and Princess Elizabeth became our Queen. Normally we sell the two sets, English and Scottish in Sandhill Holders, but as Sandhill is no longer making cases, that is now impossible. Our normal price on the two sets in selected circulated condition is £29.95; there are a total of ten coins in the set. We have had the two sets sorted into snap lock plastic bags, one for English Shillings and one for Scottish Shillings. We are going to offer them for just £9.50 for both sets. That will save you £20.45. You don’t get the Sandhill Cases but you do save £20.45!
The set Includes the old large bronze Pennies of Queen Victoria, Edward VII, George V, George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II. In September 2015 Queen Elizabeth II replaced Queen Victoria as our longest serving Monarch. The bronze Penny was first issued under Queen Victoria and was last issued under Queen Elizabeth II. Get all five Pennies one of each Monarch for just £7.50. How do we do it? We are Britain's Coin Shop, we have the largest inventory of British Coins in the United Kingdom. We work on a mark-up, not on a dream price. With Coincraft you get good value for your money.
One of our competitors is offering a set of World War I Pennies 1914-1918. Yes, their set comes in a smart case, but they are charging £79.50 for the collection... Also, the coins they illustrated were cleaned, they probably think that improves their appearance, but it actually depreciates their worth. Our coins are average circulated just as theirs are, but ours are natural, we have not cleaned them. We do not supply a case, on the other hand, our set is priced at £10.00 and theirs is priced at £79.50. We will not name the other company, we don't want to shame them any more than their price of £79.50 shames them already...
