  1. Hello all, I recently came across a 2014 20p with a lighthouse on it and the text Bailiwick of Jersey. A friend queried if it was a rare one and having looked online I am finding mixed information. There are some on eBay for £100s of pounds. I'm wondering if it is worth hanging on to or selling. Or worth no more than its face value. Thanks for any help in advance. Matt
  2. Hi all, Would anyone be interested in the below ? Im looking for £575 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Queen Anne (1702 – 14) Pattern Farthing in Lead, bust left, ANNA AVGVSTA. rev. Peace standing in biga, PAX MISSA PER ORBEM (cf. BMC 766 for specimen in tin) Porous flan, fine, and believed to be unique thus extremely rare. Provenance Ex Archbishop Sharp* Collection, Glendinings 5th October 1977, lot 274 Ex The Colin Cooke Collection, lot 497 * Dr John Sharp (1645 – 1714) was Archbishop of York from 1691 until his death in 1714, and from a note in his Will it is known that he began collecting coins in 1687. As a noted numismatist of his day, many of the coins such as this rare piece would have been bought contemporary to the time when they were made.

    British penny sells for $179,000 in California

    Last Friday, a British 1933 penny was sold at auction, by Heritage Auctions, in Anaheim, California at the ANA World’s Fair of Money for US$ 179,000 This equates to €174,411.06 or GB£151,920.22 I cannot help wondering if this coin might have sold for more money if offered for sale in a British auction. What was the logic behind selling it via an American auction house in California? Did the post-Brexit dip in the value of Sterling adversely affect the bids from the UK? For more info on this extremely rare coin, see https://oldcurrencyexchange.com/2014/08/20/rare-coins-the-1933-british-penny/
  4. Michael Freeman has asked me to bring this to your attention. "Could you mention that Heritage are auctioning next month the only known 1926 penny with Modified Effigy AND the 1927-36 reverseS. 4054A.In Long Beach auction no. 3042.I am sure lots of British penny collectors don't know this, and would be very interested in it."Here's a link: http://coins.ha.com/itm/great-britain/george-v-modified-effigy-penny-1926-au-details-altered-surfaces-pcgs-/p/3042-31060.s?ic4=OtherResults-SampleItem-071515
  5. Hi everyone. I'm new to coin collecting so need some advice on a coin i found in a job lot. I believe it to be the 1922 Penny with the Britannia reverse from 1927 which i know is rare. It is a little rubbed but i believe the gap above the 1922 along with Britannias arm and the way it slopes up (along with it being thin and not muscly like the original 1922 reverse) gives it away. The border teeth seem to be rubbed however if you look next to the 1922 the teeth seem alot more obvious there. Can you please confirm if this is right or not? I have been made an very good offer by a dealer who is convinced it is right i just need to know whether or not to accept it and what the value is if its genuine?
