Newfoundland was originally a part of Canada which issued its own coinage, now it is part of the Confederation of Canada and they use Canadian coins. This is the Silver Ten Cents issued under King George VI. It has the crowned Monarch on one side the value and date on the other side. I have many of the George VI 5 Cents, but the last time I ran the George VI 10 Cents they quickly sold out. With luck a dealer travelling in Canada came across a small group of this important silver ten cents. I say important because Newfoundland no longer issues its own coinage, and you would need one for your coin of a country collection. The coins are in Very Fine condition and struck in Silver, remember this country no longer issues its own coinage.
We have put together a nice three-coin type set of the King George VI coins from Newfoundland. Of course, Newfoundland is now part of Canada, but since the time of Queen Victoria, they have issued their own coinage. Because the population of Newfoundland is so small, the mintages on these coins are also rather small and it is a country that no longer issues its own coins. You get the bronze Penny plus the Silver 5 Cents and the 10 Cents of King George VI, all issued under the name of Newfoundland. The coins are in Fine or better condition and we think the three coins make a nice type collection of their coinage. They don’t make coins of Newfoundland any more, but we have the set for your collection. The history behind the coins is most interesting and so are the coins themselves.
The largest denomination of silver coins issued by the province of Newfoundland in Victorian times was the Fifty Cent piece. But, you must remember in Victorian times 50 Cents was a lot of money. It was worth a few shillings. These coins are not easy to get and the ones we obtained are in Very Good condition. You have the bust of Victoria on one side and the date and value on the other side. At the time of issue, Newfoundland was not part of Canada it was a province of Canada. These are struck in good silver and are a most interesting and unusual coin. Supplies are limited and this group took us almost two years to put together.
One of the most North Eastern Provinces of Canada is Prince Edward Island. They only made a coin once for this area and that was in 1871. You have the crowned portrait of Queen Victoria on one side and a pine tree on the other. This was a large One Cent coin and it was the only coin ever struck for Prince Edward Island and it was minted for just one year, 1871. The coins are in Fine or better condition and if you are trying to put together one coin from each country, you will definitely need this one. Our agent has been going to Canada twice a year for two years to put this group together. After all there are a lot of people who want a coin from Prince Edward Island and not a lot of coins to go around. A very important type coin and the only coin of the country.
We found a small group of the Silver 10 Cent coins issued by George V. They are well worn, but then again, as Ceylon is an island, the coins just kept circulating. The George V issues are Very Good and some are slightly more than that. Not beautiful but also not easy coins to get.
This beautiful little bronze coin was struck in Chile in South America some 70 years ago, in 1951. It has the symbol of Latin American’s freedom, Bernardo O’Higgins on it. It was only issued between 1942 and 1953, so this 1951 is one of the last ones ever made. The current catalogue price for an Uncirculated example is $7.50 (£5.50) so we think our price of just £3.50 is most reasonable. They are in Uncirculated condition that has toned down to a beautiful colour over the years.
Colombia is now one of the most go ahead countries in South America. It has gotten rid of most of the drug dealers and is now joining the rest of the world in working hard and growing. Their new coins express this ‘go get them’ image and I think they are rather special, all showing animals. They are all dated 2013-2014 and are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The two largest denominations are bi-metallic. You get the 50 Pesos with a bear on it, the 100 Pesos a flowering plant, 200 Pesos with a parrot, 500 Pesos with a frog and the 1000 Pesos with a tortoise on it. The designs are beautiful and it is one of the nicest modern sets that we have seen. Unfortunately, we were only allocated 100 sets of the new coinage, seems there is a small problem about taking the coins out of the country. Never-the-less our man managed to get us 100 Brilliant Uncirculated sets. Don’t miss out.
This handsome silvered crown of 10 Francs was issued by Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2010. You have a Mongolian Warrior on horseback galloping ahead wearing his plumed helmet, holding his flag as he charges forward. I think it is a very striking looking coin and one that you will be happy with. It is silvered so it looks like solid silver and is a gleaming Proof crown or 10 Francs. It is beautiful…
In 2010 the Democratic Republic of the Congo issued a coin honouring the Roman Centurion as part of their Warriors of the World series.

From medieval times the Templar Knight or better known as the Knight Templar was both famous and infamous, depending on which side of the sword you were on. They have been honoured by a rather beautiful 10 Francs issued by the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2010. It is part of their Warriors of the World Series. However we must warn or delight you, whichever side of the sword… although it looks like a beautiful silver crown in Choice Proof condition, it is actually a beautiful silver plated crown in Choice Proof condition. But I am sure your friends won’t know the difference when you show it to them. All they will know is that it is a beautiful coin.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo issued a series of Proof Crowns or 10 Francs in 2010 to honour real and fantasy Warriors of the World. Here we are offering the Zulu Warrior made famous by the movie about Rorke’s Drift. Each silver plated crown is struck in gleaming Proof condition and we think we bought most of the mintage.

The African nation of The Democratic Republic of the Congo has issued a set of silvered crowns honouring Warriors of the World. The one on offer this issue is The Viking, a group of warriors the UK as a nation well knows. After all they raided and invaded Britain. You have a Viking standing with his axe and shield in his hands and wearing the famous Viking helmet. The obverse has the coat of arms for The Congo, a leopard’s face in a shield. The denomination is 10 Francs and it was issued in 2010. It is struck on silvered copper and is in Proof condition. Good value and historically important.
Two proof crowns from the Democratic Republic of the Congo honouring the late Princess Diana. The first is for when she met Pope John Paul II in 1985. The other was when she was on her visit to India in 1992. Each 5 Franc coin is full crownsized and heavily silver plated, struck in choice Proof condition and comes in a capsule. A great pair at a great price, but supplies are very limited. We feel that they should be sold as a pair and at our price we think you will agree, but supplies are limited.
This is one Olympic coin or crown you almost never see. It was issued by the Republic of the Congo in 1999, for the Sydney, Australia Olympics held in 2000. You have a shot putter getting ready for the throw with a Greek God to his side. The other side has a native figure holding up a tablet like the 10 Commandments reading ‘Unite Travail Progress’. It is full crownsized and has the denomination of 100 Francs and is struck in Uncirculated cupronickel. There were quite a few Olympic coins issued over the years, but this is one that you almost never see. Get it while you can, after all the Olympics are quickly coming up…

He was a fantastic man and one to be admired.
The First Crusade was declared in 1095 by Pope Urban II and its objective was to provide military support to Byzantine Emperor Alexios I against the Seljuk Turks, as well as reclaiming the "Holy Land" from Muslim rule. The Crusades started around 1095 and continued for nearly 200 years, during that time four different Crusades were made to retake Jerusalem. The Crusades in the Middle East ended when the city of Acre fell in 1291. These silver deniers or pennies were issued in the name of King Bohemond III (1163-1201), who in the summer of 1191, alongside Guy de Lusignan met Richard of England (Lion Heart) during the siege of Acre. Richard was part of the Third Crusade (1189–1192), an attempt by three European monarchs (including Richard of England) to reconquer the Holy Land from Saladin. The coins on offer have a helmeted Crusader Knight on one side wearing chain-mail and were minted in Antioch (modern-day Turkey) which was captured in 1098 during the First Crusade. The legends read BOAMVNDVS on the obverse and ANTIOCHIA on the reverse and they grade Good Very Fine. These coins are from the 'Roupen' hoard and are now over 800 years old!
