Colonial "Silver Dollar" coins like above, but clipped and hammered with a "crown over 6" stamp
These unique coins (not seen by me yet on the net) are thicker and of slightly greater diameter than the British 1 shilling of the era and weigh about 8.8 grams (12 available).
Each contains 0.25 or more oz silver. Please email me if you know the story of these coins, who made them, used them, etc. Thanks!
Welcome! More coin listings and coin images will be added as silver inventory is further sorted to find the best coins for each date.
  • The idea is lower prices to you by saving auction web site expenses.
  • In selected cases, I will make .jpg scans like shown below for you upon request.
  • I am primarily interested in bullion purchases and sales; however, I have experience as a numismatic collector. The "bid" prices below reflect info on sites like World Coin Gallery and others where values with decimals (0.00) are in USD else the value is in pounds. These "values" are my own self-education on where "numismatic value" might exceed bullion value and at present, do not represent third-party "bids" or "minimum bids". So please make reasonable offers which most probably will be accepted or lead to meaningful discussion! Thanks.

    Auction
  • Some coins are so scarce I can't find them on the internet.
  • Therefore, for "price discovery", this auction!
  • 1. Bids in red below are real bids from a buyer.
  • 2. Email a higher bid and I'll post that promptly (1 - 24 hours).
  • 3. If your bid is the highest, you will see it when posted.
