Victoria, Old Head Shilling Fair, 1893-1901

The third and last design of the Victorian coinage was the Old Head type issued from 1893- 1901. You have the bust of Queen Victoria wearing a widow’s headdress and the other side has three shields in a circle. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and were made for every year from 1893-1901. Dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you. These coins were struck at the end of the longest reign of any British Monarch, although our own Queen is quickly getting close to over taking her. These Queens Shillings are available in different grades to fit more collector’s pockets. The grade offered here is Fair: a lot of wear and some of the lettering may be worn away.

India, East India Co. Treasure X Cash

These 10 and 20 cash coins were struck for the East India Company in Birmingham in 1808. Unfortunately the coins never made it to India; the ship carrying them sunk on the Goodwin Sands and lay undiscovered for almost 200 years. The coins struck were the 10 and the 20 Cash coins. Both denominations are copper and have the arms of the East India Company supported by two lions on one side. The other side has the denomination XX (20) Cash or X (10) Cash and the inscription is in the Arabic. Here we present the X coins, which are in Very Fine, but have seen some edge damage due to their being buried for almost 200 years. Own a piece of British / Indian Treasure coin for far less than you might expect to pay. These are a wonderful conversation piece as well as true treasure coins. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity...

Picture of British West Africa, 1/10thd 1926

British West Africa, 1/10thd 1926

In 1926 British West Africa still existed and in 1926 Princess Elizabeth was born. British West Africa struck a small coin with a star on it and a hole in the center. Not planed that way but what a wonderful coincident.A coin with a star to celebrate her birthday. The coin from the year of our Queen’s birth (1926) has a denomination of 1/10th of a Penny. The hole was so the natives who did not have pockets, could thread the coins on string and wear them around their necks. They wore their tributes to their future Queen. These coins are in Uncirculated condition but have toned down a bit over the past 95 years. They look great but are in short supply.
