Harry S. Truman Set of 8 dollars milled edge. Let’s start off by saying these President Harry S. Truman ‘Dollars’ were made by ICB and have nothing to do with the United States Government and they have no face value. Perhaps they will make people in the States think, but they are a private issue. Harry S. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States, he took over when Franklin D. Roosevelt died in office. He was responsible for the end of World War II. Europe was capitulating when he took office, but the Far East had a long way to go. He dropped the Atom bombs on Japan, to save hundreds of thousands of lives that would have been lost invading Japan. He set up the Marshall Plan to help rebuild Western Europe, he broke down the racial barriers in the military and in the government. When he left office he refused to go on any corporate payroll, despite not having a Presidential pension. These pattern ‘Dollars’ show Truman on one side with the date 1973 and the Number of each piece out of a total of 50 made is etched into the coin. The reverse shows the White House with the Truman balcony and the American Bald Eagle with a ‘1’. Only 50 were struck with the plain edge and 50 with the milled edge, We are offering both types. There are 8 pieces in each set, Sterling Silver, Goldine, Bronze, Aluminium, Pewter, Cupronickel, Copper and Steel. I bought most of the mintage, all 8 pieces are etched with your unique matching number, out of the total mintage of just 50 sets. They are full crownsized and in Proof condition.
This coin was issued in America from 1864-1909, the coins on offer are all later dates and in Very Good condition. This coin was replaced by the Lincoln cent in 1909. Dates will be of our choice, but there are no rare dates represented.
This full crownsized challenge piece honours the K9 Corps or dogs who have helped the police and armed forces. .On one side you have a dog in black, blue and gold with the legend ‘Loyalty, Honor, Courage and Strength’. The reverse has a dog’s paw in red, white and blue. ‘Guardians of the night, protector of law enforcement’.
The explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark decided to explore and map parts of America in 1804-6. They met the Lemhi Shoshone woman known as Sacagawea, who even though she had just had a child, agreed to help them. At one point a boat capsized and the journals and records fell into the water. It was Sacagawea who rescued these documents. The island nation of Fiji issued a commemorative Dollar to honour the trio in 2015. It has the 3 standing together and the reverse has the coat of arms of Fiji. It is gold plated copper and in choice Proof condition. The United States also issued a small sized dollar coin, but just to honour the Indian maiden Sacagawea. This is also struck in a yellow metal and in Proof condition. We are offering the Fiji and the American proof dollars as a pair, as it seems best that way. So you get the Proof dollar from Fiji and the proof dollar from the United States.
US Mercury Silver Dime 1940-1945. We have just bought a hoard of United States Silver Mercury Dimes or 10 Cent pieces all dated 1940-1945. They are struck in 900 fine Silver and in Fine or better condition. The dealer selected them from lots that came in over the years. These World War II silver coins are one of the most beautiful coins that America has ever issued. They are nicer than usual and we have most dates and mint marks in stock, so the more you order the more different coins we will be able to give you. You are getting a chance on this fabulous hoard.
From 1878 until 1935 there were only three different types of United States Silver Dollars. Here you have a Morgan Silver Dollar struck from 1878 to 1904. Dates will be of our choice. Each coin is struck in 900 fine silver and is full crownsized. We can offer Brilliant Uncirculated examples. American silver dollars, or cartwheels, as they are known are the best value older crownsized silver coins on the market. Compare one to a British Crown and you will see that they offer good value for money.
This bar was made to honour the men and women who served in the Ohio, United States National Guard. You have an American eagle flying across an American flag in red, white and blue. The reverse has an outline of the State of Ohio with an eagle on it. It reads ‘Standing with Honor, Dignity and Respect Ohio Patriot Guard’. Each bar comes in a protective capsule and we were only allowed to buy 100 of them, so if you want one, best to get in quickly…
The United States held the Summer Olympics in 1984 in Los Angeles, California. these were the first Olympic Games to be professionally run and the first to make a profit. The United States Mint issued two Proof Silver Dollars to raise money to pay for these games. The difference between the cost and the selling price went to the Olympic Committee. In 1983 they issued a Silver Dollar with a modern triple vision of the Discus Thrower and the head of an American Bald Eagle on the reverse. In 1984 they issued a Silver Dollar with the nude but headless sculptures at the entrance to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The reverse had the American Bald Eagle in full stance. Both are struck in 900 fine silver. Today the Royal Mint charges £80.00 each for a silver Proof Crown, so I think that our price of £69.50 for both American Silver Dollars is quite fair; remember our price includes the Government’s 20% VAT!
This medal says it all, ‘Grateful Nation – Never Forget – POW –MIA’ which stands for Prisoner of War (POW) and Missing in Action (MIA). The bold head of a Bald Eagle in white, gold and yellow is set against a red, white and blue American Flag. The other side also has the head of an eagle and five symbols for the five branches of the American armed services. This piece is outstanding in that the colours are bright and vibrant and really knock you out. The sentiment is even more important, these are the service people who have helped defend us and we cannot forget them. One of the nicest pieces we have offered, but supplies are limited.
In 1976, the United States celebrated the bi-centennial of gaining freedom from…. the US! Yes, it was over two hundred years ago that the two nations split, fiscally but not emotionally. The US Mint made new designs for the 25c, 50c and $1 coins. We knew we had some of the 1976 Quarters or 25c pieces in Proof, the only problem was finding them? Well, 4-5 years later, here they are. We never lose anything, but we do misplace the odd coin or two. You have a drummer beating his drum with a flame in a circle behind. It is a one year design, Choice Proof coins, struck in cupronickel by the US Mint and finally available to you again!
A friend of ours was cleaning out one of his warehouses and came across a quantity of this important collection. It was issued by the Canadian company ‘Husky Self Service Stations’ in 1970. They were struck by the famous, but no longer making coins, Franklin Mint. Each copper medallion depicts a famous figure from the old West and the collection comes with a booklet telling you who each one is and what they did. Plus a presentation card for displaying the whole collection. Each medallion is still in the original cellophane envelope that it was issued in. You get an eight-page information booklet which not only tells you about the person on the medallion but also an image of how they looked. Plus, a 4-page leaflet telling you about the issue of these medallions. Finally, a full-colour cardboard display card to mount and show off the entire collection of 13 pieces. The ‘cowboys’ depicted are Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild Bill Hickok, Wyatt Earp, Kit Carson, Bat Masterson, Meriwether Lewis, and William Clark. The Native Americans depicted are Geronimo, Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Black Hawk, Sacajawea, and Crazy Horse. There are a total of 13 different bronze medallions all in pristine, unopened, new condition. And remember this set is 47 years old! We offer the complete set with a display card and information booklet for only £24.50! But there is a limit of 2 sets per order. After all, at this price, they are a gift and they make great gifts! Don’t miss out on this one.
We have taken some Brilliant Uncirculated United States Silver Eagles, one of their most beautiful modern coins and made it even better. We have imported some full colour cases from America to make them look even better. The cases are called Snap Lock as they snap together and unsnap to hold your coin or coins. Dates of the American Silver Eagles will be of our choice, but each will contain one ounce of pure silver, be in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and comes in a handsome Snap Lock Case.
One of our most popular American coins is the Mercury Dime, but usually we only have them from the 1940’s or War Time. We bought a large group of these 900 fine Silver coins in and they have been sorted by date. We have come up with a much smaller group of coins dated in the 1930’s, from 1930-1939. Why are they more difficult to get? Because the 1930’s was the time of the Great Depression and money was far more important and could buy a heck of a lot more in those days. The coins have a portrait of the god Mercury on one side and a fasces on the other side. All coins will be in Fine condition and dates and mint marks will be of our choice. But the more you order the more different dates and mint marks we will try and give you.
During the move to the new customer service department, we found a hell of a lot of coins that we had forgotten we owned. Amongst them, a large group of United States Kennedy Half Dollars in Proof condition. These were issued between 1971 and today. While the Kennedy is no longer issued for circulation, they still issue them for mint and proof sets… We want to clear out the space, so we are going to make you a fantastic offer on Proof Kennedy Half Dollars. Normally we would charge £5.95-£7.95 per coin. But this is a very special offer and one you should not miss. I will give you two (2) different Kennedy half dollars in Proof condition for just £7.95. These are bargain priced, while our supplies last. When we replace them, our replacement cost will be this price or more. So get them while you can: 2 different Proof Kennedy Half Dollars for just £7.95!
This beautiful gold coloured with light blue, dark blue, red and white challenge piece is for one of the least known American Services, the Coast Guard. You have a ship at sea with a helicopter over head and their logo ‘Semper Paratus’. The reverse has a pair of anchors intertwined. It is full crownsized and comes in a protective capsule. If you like the sea you will love this challenge piece. At the price we are selling it, it just might fit into a few collections, but supplies are limited, we were only allowed to buy 130 of them and once they are gone, they are gone...
This Liberty Head Nickel was an American five-cent coin, issued for circulation from 1883 until 1912. It replaced the copper-nickel five-cent coin with the Shield struck in the early 1880s. Designed by Charles Barber it went into production in 1883. On the obverse is the classic head of Liberty, the reverse has a large roman numeral ‘V’ inside a wreath indicating the denomination of the coin and the word ‘cents’ below. In 1912 it was replaced by the Buffalo nickel.
The Morgan Silver Dollar was made between 1878 and 1904, and then they struck a somewhat similar coin in 1921. For our purposes the dates that count are 1878-1904. George T. Morgan who designed this Silver Dollar, was actually British, so it makes them a little closer to home. These are nice coins and ones that most collectors would be only too proud to own. The hoard that we bought, all grade MS64 (Mint State 64 out of 70) which are much nicer coins than we previously offered. They come from three different American Mints, no mint mark, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ‘S’ mint mark, San Francisco, California and ‘O’ mint mark from New Orleans, Louisiana. Here we present the Philadelphia Silver Dollar. When the silver dollar market was boiling, at one time an MS64 Silver Dollar wholesaled for $250.00. We think the market has reached a level where the coins are reasonably priced today.
The United States Silver Dollar or Cartwheel as it is known, was the currency that they used in the old West. All those cowboy films you grew up with, the men went to the bar and spent Silver Dollars. The Morgan Silver Dollar was made between 1878 and 1904, and then they struck a somewhat similar coin in 1921. For our purposes the dates that count are 1878-1904. George T. Morgan who designed this Silver Dollar, was actually British, so it makes them a little closer to home. These are nice coins and ones that most collectors would be only too proud to own. The hoard that we bought, all grade MS64 (Mint State 64 out of 70) which are much nicer coins than we previously offered. The coins available all have the ‘S’ mint mark of San Francisco, California. Each coin is slabbed, that is sealed to protect it and graded so you know what you are getting. We do not like slabs, but as they usually cost £10-£20 to have done. We do not think it makes it worth any more to break open the slab. It also authenticates the coin and we don’t charge you any extra!

These usually come weakly struck, so MS64 is a very high grade. When the silver dollar market was boiling, at one time an MS64 Silver Dollar wholesaled for $250.00. I think the market has reached a level where the coins are reasonably priced today. The coin is slabbed, that is sealed to protect it and graded so you know what you are getting. We are offering them per single coin, dates of our choice or groups of different mints. In either case the coins are fantastic and our price of just £95 each, is much less than they use to sell for and are correct today. New Orleans ‘O’ Mint Mark Morgan Silver Dollars in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, £95.00 each.
This crown sized medal was issued to honour Alaska State Troopers, which fits in nicely with all those Television shows about Alaska being shown at the moment. You have the badge of an Alaskan State Trooper in gold and black. The reverse is a brilliant proof of Saint Michael – patron saint of law enforcement in gold colour. Each Proof piece comes in a protective capsule. We only were allowed to buy 100 pieces and with all this publicity about Alaska, they should have plenty of interest.
Uruguay is on the East Coast of South America just below Brazil. It is not a country you hear much about or see many coins from. Our friend offered us two early Silver coins from Uruguay and we quickly snapped them up. There are only 50 of each coin in stock and when they are gone… Here we present the famous Gaucho 10 Pesos of 1961 issued for the Sesquicentennial of the Revolution against Spain. It's in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and a rather handsome coin. The coin was struck in 900 fine Silver and it's certainly not very easy to find...
