Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (NHS) 1998 Silver Proof Piedfort

In 1998 the Royal Mint issued a special 50 Pence honouring the National Health Service (NHS). They made some special coins for very special collectors. They were struck in Proof Sterling Silver and were twice the normal thickness or Piedforts. We have just bought 10 of these important type coins. With what some of the prices that are being asked for ‘common’ current coins, we think this is good value.

Elizabeth II, 7-coin Silver Proof Set in presentation case 1996

1996 was a very interesting year in recent British history: England hosted the European Football Championships (We can’t wait for that to happen again), Charles & Diana finally completed their divorce, Nelson Mandela visited the UK, and the Royal Mint did something they had never done before. They issued a Proof Set of the then-current 1996 coins but, every coin was struck in Proof Sterling Silver. You have the 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p 50p and £1 all struck in Proof Sterling Silver. The whole set comes in a purple plush presentation case with the certificate and is a rather handsome set. One of the marketing company’s is asking £450.00 for this Silver Proof Set. We think this is a fantastic set and, as such, it is much underappreciated. But maybe not if you pay what some of the marketing companies are asking you for it… A nice set sold at a great price!

Picture of Elizabeth II, Welsh Dragon Piedfort Silver Pound, 2000

Elizabeth II, Welsh Dragon Piedfort Silver Pound, 2000

2000 Welsh Dragon Piedfort Silver Pound. In 2000 the Royal Mint issued a Pound coin with the Welsh dragon on it. It is a very simple yet handsome design and one that would make anyone wish they were Welsh, just so they could claim the dragon. It is the Rank-Broadley bust of the Queen on the obverse. These are the Very Special coins struck in Proof Sterling Silver and double thickness Piedfort. A beautiful design in gleaming Piedfort Proof Sterling Silver.

1758_Shilling_Obv

George II, Shilling 1758 Very Fine

King George II ruled from 1727-1760 and he was, of course, the son of King George I. There are two different busts of the King used on his coinage, the Young Head which was used from 1728-1745 and the Old Head which was used from 1746-1758. It's the older bust Shilling that we are offering here. The coins were all struck in 1758, all struck in Sterling Silver and have a mature bust of the King wearing a laurel wreath on one side, and the crowned set of four shields on the other side. They represented England, Ireland, Scotland and France (!). You see, the British Monarchy still claimed part of France even back in those days... The Shilling is a nice sized coin and we can offer it in Very Fine, remember that these coins are now 263 years old!

Picture of George III, Wales Patina Silver

George III, Wales Patina Silver

This Wales crownsized Patina retro-pattern is based on the portrait of King George III that the Bank of England used on their emergency coinage in the early 1800s. In fact I think this portrait is as good as that one. These Patina pieces are struck in Proof Sterling Silver. I don’t know what the mintages are, but I believe they are rather small. We bought this lot just recently from a dealer, but we don’t know where he got them from. You have the bust of King George III on one side and the symbol of which country it represents on the reverse. All are in Proof Sterling Silver.

Picture of George IV, Crown Fine

George IV, Crown Fine

During the short reign of King George IV this Sterling Silver Crown or Five Shilling piece was only struck for two years 1821 and 1822. You have the portrait of King George IV on the obverse with St. George and the dragon on the reverse. There was another design crown issued in 1826 but that is very rare. This is a rather handsome and, we believe, underappreciated coin and one that over the past few years has been harder and harder to get. In fact, the few coins that we can offer you have taken us two years to put together. The coins on offer are in Fine condition. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were only struck for two years.

Picture of George IV, Silver Crown Fine

George IV, Silver Crown Fine

In the reign of King George IV, he only issued crowns for circulation for two years 1821 and 1822. These are difficult to get as it was such a short mintage. We have a small supply of this Sterling Silver Crown and we have them in Fine condition. Dates are of our choice, but if you order more than one coin, we will try and give you one of each date. A short series and not an easy one to find.
