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.
The entrancing game of Trivial Pursuit has now been immortalized on a Canadian coin. Which makes sense as the inventors were Canadian. This coin was for their 35th anniversary 1982-2017. Each $25 silver coin has H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and the full-colour Pursuit wheel on the reverse. The coin weighs one ounce of 999 fine silver and is in Proof condition. It comes in a handsome wooden case with certificate. Unfortunately, we were only able to secure 20 pieces. They are sure to be popular with collectors and gamers alike. We wish we could have bought more of them, but that was all that was left...
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.

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.

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.

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!

This crownsized Cuba 1 Peso was issued in 1995 for the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. Usually a one peso coin will be rather small, but this case it is a full 38mm. More importantly it comes in the original bubble package. The current catalogue price is $17.00 about £13.50. You have a group of faces with a dove of peace in the background. The obverse has the Cuban coat of arms. This piece was part of the Royal Mint United Nations programme and most collectors have never seen this coin. If you live in America it is sill illegal for you to import it. Nice Uncirculated examples in the bright yellow bubble pack and at only £8.50, it is quite a good deal…
Perhaps one of the most famous literary figures was Hidalgo Don Quixote, the famous knight who charged a windmill. Of course from this, we all now realize that tilting or running at a windmill will get us nowhere, except perhaps a broken back or neck. In 1982 Cuba issued a special commemorative One Peso coin for Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. It shows the Knight on horseback charging at a windmill, lance at the ready. The mintage of this Uncirculated 1 Peso is only 7,000 coins, so I think our price is quite attractive. Don’t tilt at windmills, do buy this coin as a reminder to keep your head about you.
This Silver Cuban 1 Pesos was issued in 1980 and celebrates the Flora of Cuba. On one side you have the coat of arms of Cuba and on the other a Mariposa flower and the date 1980. This is one of the Cuban coins more difficult to get and we are fortunate to have a nice group in Uncirculated condition at this attractive price, which makes them even better.
