Tristan da Cunha, 25 Pence (Queen Mother 80th Anniversary Crown) 1980 Unc

This Crown or 25 Pence piece was issued in 1980 for the Queen Mother’s 80th Birthday. It was issued by Tristan da Cunha a very small island in the South Atlantic Ocean. There are only about 300 people on the island, the only way to travel there is by ship from Cape Town, and you need to be able to climb back up a rope ladder to be allowed off the ship. In case the ship needs to leave quickly. You have a beautiful portrait of the Queen Mother with a tiara-like crown on one side and her daughter Queen Elizabeth II on the other side. These crowns are now 42 years old and still in Uncirculated condition. Today it would be almost impossible to find them in any quantity. With our recent move, a part bag was found which we put away in 1980. This crown is from a very remote and almost impossible to get to island. These crowns are now 42 years old and Uncirculated condition.

Elizabeth II, Complete Date Set of Sixpences

The complete collection of Queen Elizabeth II Sixpences from the Coronation year 1953 until they ceased striking Sixpences for everyday usage in 1967. The Sixpence or Tanner, as it was called, was one of the most liked coins of its day. In fact, it was so well-liked that it was still legal tender till well after decimalization came into effect! You'll get all the dates: 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958. 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967. All the scarce and rare dates are included. All coins are struck in cupro-nickel and are in selected circulated condition. There are 15 different dates and you get all 15 of them. Remember that a Sixpence is usually carried by the bride for good luck. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a sixpence in your shoe! Sixpences make wonderful gifts and are an important part of British history!

United States of America, 1997 Mini Set of 3 coins

In 1997 the Royal Mint and the United States Mint got together and both issued Mint Sets to their collectors. We don’t know exactly what happened, but… The Royal Mint sold their left over American Mint Sets to a foreign exchange trader on condition that they break them up. Not to sell them as Mint Sets but just as regular coins. We ended up buying 250 each of the 1997 United States 5 Cents (Jefferson), 25 Cents (Washington) and 50 Cents (Kennedy). We have always felt that they are better struck than the usual circulation coins. But they said no, well they are the best struck coins that we have seen, that were not proofs. Now many years later, We are going to give up trying to prove something we still believe in. So we are selling a mini set of 1995 5c, 25c & 50c as Choice Brilliant Uncirculated coins. They are nice and at £3.95 for the three coins, sold at a very reasonable price...
