In 1995 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, the Royal Mint issued a series of crown sized coins. The event did not hit the peak the Royal Mint wanted, especially as they spent most of their time trying to promote the Silver issues. So that the cupronickel issues have turned out to be the scarcest of the issue. One of these was from Seychelles. We find that we are running short and this could be your last time on this one. The crown is Uncirculated and as far as I know, we have the last group of these coins available. Good value and now 23 years old.
In 2015 the Royal Mint issued a crownsized £5 to honour Winston S. Churchill, our wartime Prime Minister. We have offered the Sterling Silver Piedfort of this coin before, but this is the first time that we offer the regular thickness. It is struck in Proof Sterling Silver rather than the double thickness of the Piedfort. You have H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and Sir Winston Churchill in a rather interesting and we think beautiful portrait on the reverse. You have had the Piedfort now is the time for the ‘regular’ VIP Sterling Silver Proof. Churchill is always popular, and we don't have that many coins available...
The small South Pacific nation of the Solomon Islands in 2015 issued a handsome silver proof crown or $10.00 to honour H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. You have her on one side wearing a crown with Parliament and Big Ben behind her. The inscription reads ‘Confidant from observer order amid change’. The other side has H. M. the Queen wearing her tiara. They are struck in Proof Sterling Silver and are rather handsome. You get two Queens for the price of one, as one of the staff commented. Small quantity in stock and for one price you are getting two different portraits of The Queen.
Today the Royal Mint charges about £80-£88 for a silver proof crown. We bought a large group of silver proof crowns, mostly British Commonwealth, many struck by the Royal Mint. They are in Proof condition and come in protective capsules. Some even have H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. All are struck in Proof 925 Silver. But, and here is the but, while the Royal Mint charges about £88.00 today for one silver proof crown, we will give you three different silver proof crowns for just £88.00. It is like buying one and getting two more FREE. They were part of a series mostly issued by and struck by the Royal Mint so you know that the quality is first class. We know they are good value at this special price, which holds only until the 50 sets we have are sold.
This is pure silver (999 fine) coin of the Solomon Islands with the Queen’s portrait on the obverse. But the reverse is printed in full colour to look like a pizza. You scratch the picture and it smells like a pizza. Better yet the box it comes in what looks like a pizza box. You can sure have a lot of fun with these. We've just found what remains of the original stock we've purchased. There are not many left, and these are getting harder and harder to find. So if you want to acquire this pure silver crown with a secret ingredient, the time is now!
In 2000 the African nation of The Republic of Somalia issued a series of crownsized 25 Shillings depicting Icons of the Millennium. One of the people so honoured was the late Pope John Paul II. You have a bust of the Pope on one side with the arms of Somalia on the other side. These crowns are struck in Prooflike cupronickel and are now 18 years old. We have what we believe is the last supply around and they are priced to tempt and delight you.
When Nelson Mandela was finally released from prison after many years hard labour, he shocked the world. He came out in a suit and didn’t hate those who put him inside. Rather he realised that he could help his country go forward and regain its place in the world. He was a hero and loved and admired by not only his own countrymen but by people all over the world. There was a Crown issued for Mandela as part of the ‘Icons of the 20th Century’ series; we are able to offer this piece to add to your collection. Supplies are running out and I don’t know where or when we will be able to get any more. A true gentleman, someone who put his country before himself, and someone I admire. Add the Crown to your collection today.
We have just 10 sets of Pope John Paul II Somalia Crowns. There are three Prooflike pieces in each set and with the increase in the metal prices; the planchets alone are worth a bunch. As we need the space, and we do not want to count them again, we will be offering them at a discounted price. Only a few lucky collectors will get to bag this bargain, so make sure you are one of them!
