St. Helena, 1st Crown (25 Pence) 1973 Silver

In 1973 the Royal Mint issued the first-ever Silver Proof Crown for the island of St. Helena. St. Helena is best known as the island where Napoleon lived in exile and where he died. It was very popular with sailing ships as a place to replenish both the fuel and their supplies. This first Sterling Silver Proof Crown has one of those sailing ships on it and of course the Queen on the obverse. Each crown comes in the official Royal Mint case and is now almost 50 years old.

George V, Penny 1936 Brilliant Uncirculated

1936 was the year that Great Britain had three different Kings, George V, Edward VIII, and George VI. This is the old large-size penny that was struck in 1936 and they are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. They are about as nice as you will ever see them. Most of the coins were struck while Edward VIII was King but all the coins carried the portrait of King George V. New coins were not issued until after the new Monarch’s Coronation. These coins are in beautiful condition and come with a fascinating history, get them while you can.
