Tristan da Cunha, Sir Walter Raleigh Diamond Shaped Coin

Sir Walter Raleigh is famous for many things, as a great sailor and explorer, he discovered tobacco in America and brought it back here and even had something to do with potatoes. He tried to find the lost city of Gold in South America but failed. He was a great favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, but when he married one of her maids in waiting, without the Queen’s approval, he was put into the Tower of London. He got out and after Elizabeth died, he got into trouble, time and time again, and it was not long before he was placed back in the Tower again. This diamond-shaped crownsized coin was issued by Tristan da Cunha to honour the great explorer Sir Walter Raleigh. His portrait is on one side and Queen Elizabeth II is on the other. It is heavily silver plated, in Proof condition and in a protective capsule. It even has an ancient sailing ship on it, if you collect ships…

Monaco, 1994 Ecu Cupro-Nickel

As many of you who collect Euros know, anything from Monaco is rare and expensive. The same holds true for the Pattern Ecu pieces of 1994. At that time everyone thought the new coinage was going to be called Ecus and not Euros. These were privately issued and highly collected. We have bought out the last of the group that was struck in 1994 and our prices are far more reasonable. These pieces can never be struck again. They have the famous Montgolfier’s balloon taking off over a country house with air balloons and sailing ships over a map of Europe
