Picture of Tristan da Cunha, Christopher Columbus

Tristan da Cunha, Christopher Columbus

Columbus discovered more than just America, he discovered the Caribbean Islands as well. This beautiful diamond-shaped Crown from Tristan da Cunha does him great justice. Christopher with wide tricorn hat, sailing ship to his right and ships wheel above is on one side and H.M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the other side. Each coin is in Proof condition and is heavily silver plated to gleam. Then it is put into a diamond shaped plastic display case to help preserve it. Now you can own a most unusual and interesting coin of that great explorer Christopher Columbus for a very competitive price: we doubt that any would be issued today at such a reasonable price.

Tristan da Cunha, Crown (Admiral Horatio Nelson) with a Piece of the HMS Victory 2015 Silver Proof

In 2015 the little island of Tristan da Cunha issued a rather special Silver Proof Crown. It was for Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson, his portrait was the reverse with H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. But what makes these crowns so special is that each coin contains an actual piece of his flagship HMS Victory. That’s right a small actual piece of the wood that was used in his ship... You can now own a real bit of history. Today the mints worldwide seem to be charging about £80.00 for a new silver crown, so we are very pleased to be able to offer you one at a lower price. However, supplies are very limited and the ship had only so much timber…

Tristan da Cunha, Ferdinand Magellan diamond shaped crown 2014 Proof Silver Plated_rev

Tristan da Cunha, Crown (Ferdinand Magellan) Proof Silver Plated

Born in 1480 Ferdinand Magellan was one of the most famous and competent Portuguese explorers. Portugal was a small country but was known for the competency of its sailors. Magellan would prove himself to be a competent sailor and soldier while serving the Portuguese army in India for eight years. Magellan defected to Spain in 1519 and, with the Spanish King's blessing set out to search for a passage to the Spice Islands (Moluccas) and achieve what Columbus never could: circumnavigate the world! In 1521 he went around South America and found the passage to the Spice Islands, but was unfortunately killed in present-day Philippines. However, on 06 September 1522, Elcano and the remaining crew of the voyage (18 out of 240) completed the journey and became the first men to circle the world.

Turkey, Anatolia, Kaykhusraw II, Dirham Lion & Sun Type Good Very Fine_obv

Turkey, Anatolia, Kaykhusraw II, Dirham (Lion & Sun Type - Seljuq sultans of Rum) Good Very Fine

Ghiyath al-Din Kaykhusraw II was the sultan of the Seljuqs of Rûm from 1237 until his death in 1246. He ruled at the time of the Babai uprising and the Mongol invasion of Anatolia. He led the Seljuq army with its Christian allies at the Battle of Köse Dağ in 1243 and was the last of the Seljuq sultans to wield any significant power, he died a vassal of the Mongols. Between ca. 1240–1243 a series of remarkable silver dirhams were struck in Kaykhusraw’s name depicting a lion and sun. Generally, Islamic traditions forbid representations of living things so it is very unusual to find such iconography on Islamic coins. Several explanations of the lion and sun have been offered to suggest that the images represent the constellation Leo, the astrological sign of Kaykhusraw’s beloved Georgian wife Tamar or that the lion represents Kaykhusraw and the sun Tamar. Grading Good Very Fine, these are beautiful silver coins struck around 780 years ago. Limited availability and the first time we have offered these coins.
