In 1939 Canada issued its first real commemorative Silver Dollar. It was for the Royal Visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. On the obverse is King George VI and on the reverse is the Parliament building. This is the first real commemorative Silver Dollar issued and they were struck in 800 fine Silver. The coins in this group are all Extremely Fine condition which is a very nice grade for collectors. Own the First Canadian commemorative Silver Dollar in Extremely Fine condition and remember it is King George VI!
These five-cent coins were issued in Canada in tombac metal only in 1943. It had a ‘V’ on it for victory in the Second World War, something that was to come slightly later. These coins are of beautiful quality and were put away the year they were issued almost 80 years ago. They catalogue up to $150 in top condition. We don’t know much about numerical grading, but we know that these coins are the best that we have seen. We have graded them Brilliant Uncirculated and Gem Brilliant Uncirculated and priced them at what we think are fair prices for such beautiful and important type coins
During the reign of King George VI Canada issued five different types of 5 Cent coins, commonly known as nickels. The first type was the round one with the beaver, the second type was 1942 in tombac with the beaver, the third type was the V for Victory in tombac, the fourth was V for Victory in steel and the last was the commemorative for Nickel 1781-1951 in nickel. We can offer a collection of all five types of George VI nickels in Fine or better condition. A wonderful little set and more and more difficult to put together these days. Our agent had to make two trips to Canada to get these sets.
These coins were used in France from 1931 until the start of World War II. They are struck in aluminum-bronze or as the Canadian’s call it, tombac. You get the 50 Centime, 1 Franc and 2 Franc coin all in selected used condition. You have the head of Liberty on one side and the value and date on the other side.
Not many crowns have been struck in Aluminium which makes this wartime Hungarian crown all the more unusual. It was originally struck in 1943 to commemorate the 75th Birthday of Admiral Horthy. He was Commander-in-Chief of the Austro-Hungarian Navy in 1917 and was regent of Hungary, acting on behalf of the absent King. During the Second World War, Hungary was part of the German alliance but in 1944 Horthy announced Hungary`s withdrawal from the war and was duly imprisoned by the Germans. He was released by the allies and he retired to Portugal where he died in 1957. In the 1950s the Hungarian Mint restruck this special Aluminium crown in prooflike condition and it is these we are able to offer now. This is the first group of these crowns that we`ve seen in years They are much more difficult to get than the catalogue suggests and at just £8.95 they are a good value for money!
Of the four Monarchs who ruled over India in the 20th Century, one of the hardest to find in nice copper or bronze coins is the last one, King George VI. Don’t forget he only came to the throne in 1937 and India became Independent in 1948. During that time there was a World War and people had something else to do than collect coins. We have a nice group of King George VI 1/4 Annas on offer. These are the largest of his bronze coins issued. The coins on offer also have the first head on them and this design was only issued for three years, the coins of 1940 are on offer. They are not easy to find, and are in Uncirculated condition with original lustre. You have the crowned bust of the Monarch on one side and the denomination and date on the other side.
We have just two coins in our inventory issued by India during World War II. As many of you know India played an important part during the War and we thought you just might find these interesting. They are King George VI 1/12th Annas which were the smallest coins issued at that time. They are in Uncirculated/Brilliant Uncirculated condition and we believe you would have great difficulty in finding them in such a high grade in India itself.
India issued coins with the portraits of British Monarchs from the reign of King William IV to King George VI. After that India became Independent and no Royals were on their coins from then on in. At the end of King George VI’s reign they issued a square ½ Anna in nickel-brass in 1942 without dots on either side of the Country *India* for the Bombay Mint. From 1942-1945 they issued the coin with the dots either side of India. From 1946-47 they issued this coin in copper-nickel. So the 1942 dots is an important type of coin. The mintage is just under 8 million, but compared to the other dates, it is minuscule. The lowest other dates are between 159 and 437 million! That makes 1942 a very low mintage, very important type coin. We bought a small group of 1942 no dots ½ Anna of 1942 and they are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The catalogue only prices them up to Uncirculated condition. We don’t know how good these coins are in India, because we could not find any for sale there… We think these are fantastic coins and who knows what they are really worth. Low mintage, one-year type coin, top condition, King George VI, and a very popular Indian coin. We have guessed at the price, which if will be raised substantially if we are wrong... Get them while you can!
It happened in 1940 that Mussolini declared war on Great Britain; he sided with Hitler and the Japanese and decided he was going to win and take us over. We guess he didn’t win. On this large nickel coin, you have the head of Victor Emanuele III and on the other side, you have an eagle with his wings full spread and an axe behind him. You just don’t get many coins from Italy issued during World War II, especially from the year they declared war on us. We shan’t make jokes about the Italian armed forces, after all, a lot of people died in the battles with them. The coin is large and in Extremely Fine condition and we think it was a fantastic find. We are going to use them in our World War II Remembered Collection that will be coming out later this year. This coin is too important to wait for it, you can own it now.
These King George VI Silver 10 Cent coins were issued under the auspices of The Commissioners of Currency Malaya, which is a mouthful to say. You have the crowned bust of the King on one side and the date and value on the other side. The condition is very high and, considering their age, we think they are rather interesting. Limited availability
During World War II, despite all the fighting, the people still needed coins in their everyday life. Gresham’s Law is that bad money drives good money out of circulation. Basically that when you issue coins in a base metal, those struck in a precious or semi precious metal will disappear as a means of conserving assets. So in the Netherlands, coins that were originally struck in silver and copper, metals that were useful in the War, were replaced by coins struck in Zinc. This is a grey metal but it was all that was available. We have three different denominations 1 Cent, 10 Cents and 25 Cents. The 25 Cents has sailing ship on it. We offer the denomination type set of 3 coins: 2 different 1 cent coins, 3 different 10 cent coins and 2 different 25 Cents. All coins are in Very Fine condition but they are struck in Zinc not one of the most attractive metals.
We have always liked the commemorative crowns of New Zealand or rather the early commemorative crowns, when they made 3 of them. Between 1935, when they first had their own coinage, and the Queen’s Coronation in 1953 they only made three commemorative crowns. Here we present the 1940 Centennial Halfcrown.. It was a wonderful time when commemorative coins were few but important...
The 1940 Halfcrown is one of only two commemorative coins from New Zealand before decimalization. It was issued under King George VI, is struck in silver and the coins are in Extremely Fine condition. It has been years since we last were able to offer this important commemorative coin and once they are gone, who knows when will we find any more. After all, if New Zealand doesn’t have its own coins, who else will.
We have just purchased a group of King George VI Silver Threepences from New Zealand, all were issued during World War II. This was the furthest part of the British Empire at the time and these coins must have had a heck of journey to get to New Zealand. All coins are in Fine condition and this one was issued in 1940.

During World War II Romania issued this silver 500 Lei for just one year 1944. Well in fact the last coins they issued was in 1947. King Mihai I is on the obverse with the crowned coat of arms on the reverse. It is most unusual to have silver coins struck during the War. These large silver coins are in Extremely Fine condition but someone has wiped them so there are faint hairlines showing. They still look nice, but the average collector wouldn’t see the difference. World War II, silver, only issued for one year and in nice condition, what more could you want?
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 African nation of Somalia issued a group of crownsized coins to honour famous people. Not every one of them was a hero, but they were famous and well known. For this issue, we can offer Winston Churchill our hero Prime Minister during the Second World War, in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Struck in cupro-nickel you have a portrait on one side and the arms of Somalia on the other side. Each piece is full crownsized and Brilliant Uncirculated condition, getting harder and harder to find.
